As part of the Residence application process, students who have self-identified as Indigenous when applying to Humber College will be able to notify Humber Residence of any sponsorship they may have, upload sponsorship letters and select related payment options for their Residence deposit and fees. Self-identified Indigenous students will also be asked Indigenous-focused roommate-matching questions so they may choose to live with other Indigenous students, if possible. Residence at Humber fills up fast, and spaces are offered on a first-come, first-served basis, so we strongly encourage all students who wish to live in Residence to apply as soon as they accept their Humber program offer.

Humber Residence also has a dedicated Indigenous student lounge, Wigwamen, in residence at campus, where Indigenous learners can relax with friends or participate in events hosted by Indigenous Education and Engagement. At the North Campus Residence, students are able to use Wigwamen for smudging. At the Lakeshore Campus, students can visit Indigenous Education & Engagement in WEL301 for smudging.
