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 – Residence is a non-smoking facility. It is forbidden to smoke in any room including common areas. This includes e-cigarettes/vapes.
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 – The individual(s) responsible for damage, when known, will assume complete responsibility.
Key lockouts and key replacements – Residence Life reserves the right to charge for having to grant access to a room. Any lost keys will result in a $20 replacement charge.
Harm and/or threat to another – Violence or physical aggression will not be tolerated in residence.
Appliances in rooms – There is a list of prohibited items outlined in your lease; this includes kettles, coffee makers, space heaters and rice cookers. Common rooms have coffee makers, kettles and microwaves for your use.
