Security to help you feel at home

Community

 

Build life-long friendships as you live, study and hang out with students from different places and programs. From study groups to residence-wide social events to late-night conversations with floor-mates, residence is a bonding experience that’s not to be missed.

92.5% of our residence students say that living on campus has helped them connect with other students and make friends.

Convenience

Your home in residence will be minutes away from your classes and all the other services on campus, like the library, the fitness centre and the squash courts. No rush-hour commute means more time to do the things you want to do!

Residence Fees

Room Reservation Fee: $200 non-refundable Room Reservation Fee is required each school year upon application to hold a room placement. This fee will be credited towards residence fees for students living in residence for the full school year. 
 
Example:
Single room full year                                               $5,400
Room Reservation Fee (paid upon application)     $200
Balance owing for full year Single room              $5,200                                                                                                                    
 
Students who withdraw at any time prior to the end of the school year will not receive a refund on the Room Reservation Fee.
 
Damage Deposit: First year students are required to pay a $500 damage deposit paid by tuition deadline. This damage deposit will remain on the students account for the duration of their time in residence. Each year a $25 administration fee will be deducted. Upon graduation or withdrawal the student will be refunded any remaining balance from this account less any damage assigned to them during their time in residence.
 
Insurance: Tenant insurance will now be included in your Residence fees.  Details will be sent before move-in.
