Main rules in Residence
Each resident must sign a lease that includes the Code of Community Living Standards and Discipline. This code helps ensure that each resident is provided with a comfortable and safe living space. It is recommended that each resident familiarize himself or herself with residence policies prior to arrival.
Some Code basics
Smoking – Our residences are 100% smoke-free facilities. It is forbidden to smoke (including e-cigarettes/vapes) in any room, including common areas. Residents who smoke must do so outside.
Drinking – Drinking is allowed only in residents’ personal rooms. Open alcoholic beverages are not allowed in common areas.
Noise and quiet hours – A resident’s right for quiet study and sleep time takes priority over a resident’s right to make noise. Quiet hours begin on weekdays at 11 p.m. and Friday and Saturday at 1 a.m. During exam periods, 24-hour quiet hours are in effect.
Damage to property – Individual(s) responsible for damage, when known, will be responsible for all repair costs.
Key lockouts and key replacements – In the instance of lost or misplaced keys, Residence Life charges a $5 fee for an RA or staff member to open your door. There is a $20 replacement charge for lost keys.
Harm and/or threat to another – Violence or physical aggression will not be tolerated in residence.
Appliances in rooms – Prohibited items are listed in your lease; These include kettles, coffee makers, space heaters and rice cookers. Common rooms have coffee makers, kettles and microwaves for your use.
