Payment Schedule Options

Term Payments:
This is the default option where your residence fees are paid once per term. (See "Term Payment Deadlines").

Monthly Payment Plan:
This option can be selected by contacting Campus Living and is subject to an annual $75 fee. This option divides term residence fees into four installments, payable by the first of each month. Credit cards are not accepted for monthly payments, and only UWinnipeg students in good financial standing are eligible for payment plans. Please note: Payment plans are only approved on a case-by-case basis and are subject to Director approval.

Note: Monthly payments do not affect your occupancy dates; they merely divide your term charges into four installments. 

Family Housing Only:
Residents of Family Housing are on a monthly payment plan by default without the $75 setup fee.

Payment Methods

NOTE: As of September 1, 2022 Cash Payments over $100.00 will not be accepted by the Campus Living Office. Please choose from the methods listed below. 


  • Flywire is the preferred payment method for international students paying residence fees. Flywire is not accepted for application fees and deposits. 
  • Submit your payment in Canadian dollars.
  • Flywire payments can only be made after receiving your payment schedule, as this schedule contains the invoice number you need for Flywire. (Payment schedules by email after completing the application.)
