Starting September 1, 2021. Watch your email for a message with your lease and info on scheduling your specific move-in time. We will include instructions related to COVID-19 safety measures for move-in day.
Plan to pay your rent on the first business day of each month. Since your lease runs until May 2, 2022, you'll pay a pro-rated amount for May. It's payable with the first month's rent.
See the amount you owe in your student account. You can pay using online banking (using your student ID number as your account number) or in-person at Birks Student Centre by debit, wire transfer, personal cheque or money order.
We'll give you a Smart Card you can load with money to use in your residence's laundry facilities. Use your Visa, MasterCard or debit to load the card in increments of $5, $10 or $20. You'll swipe the card in the washer or dryer to do your laundry.
You're responsible for keeping your room clean, of course. You can borrow a broom or a vacuum cleaner but plan to buy your own cleaning supplies. You're also responsible for leaving common areas tidy after you use them. Custodial staff clean common areas daily.
You can break your lease if you withdraw from the university and give Residence Life one month (30 days) written notice of your withdrawal. You will be charged rent for the following month if you don't give sufficient notice.
Keep residence furniture and window coverings in good condition, with no major scratches, dents or gouges, so you won't need to pay for repairing damaged items, or replacing missing items. We will also charge you for dismantled or damaged smoke detectors.
Residents aren't responsible for normal wear and tear, but damage to walls by tape, stickers, decals or pins could result in charges starting at $25. If we need to repaint, the contractor or Facilities Management will set the cost.
The cost of replacing or repairing missing or damaged window screens is $200.
