Your Residence. Your Room.

Your new residence room will become a place of fond memories throughout the year and we want to ensure you are comfortable. 

Below are a few areas to keep in mind as you make your residence room your own.

Residence Room Guidelines

Decorations

Residence students are allowed to put up decorations, but they must not present a fire hazard because of size and material, and they cannot exceed more than 20% of the wall and ceiling space. Students may use the wall mounts provided to them during move-in. If you require more mounts for decorations, contact your Don.

Should your decorations remove paint or create damage, you are responsible for the cost of repair and/or replacement.

Furniture

Furniture not supplied by the Department of Residence, with the exception of an office/desk chair, is prohibited in the buildings (e.g. waterbeds, mattresses, beanbag chairs, etc.). Existing furniture is prohibited from being removed from resident rooms or lounges.

Athletic Activity

Conducting athletic activity in residence rooms, hallways and/or common areas is prohibited.

Storage

A minimal amount of space for storage is located throughout each residence. Residents may not use the hallway as storage. Residents are personally responsible for items placed in storage rooms. The university assumes no responsibility for missing or damaged items. All items in storage must be removed at check out.

Windows and Screens

Residents will be responsible for ensuring that the screen remains in their window, free of holes/tears and that the screen is not removed/relocated. Residents will be charged for damage to or replacement of the screen. Residents are also responsible for ensuring that window and balcony door locks and limiters remain secure at all times. Throwing or dropping any object or substance from windows, stairwells, balconies or rooftops is strictly prohibited.

Damage and Vandalism

Students are responsible for the condition of their bedrooms and suite common areas. Students will be held responsible for the cost of any repairs and/or replacement of residence property resulting from vandalism, carelessness, neglect or any other damage.

Restricted Areas

Custodial rooms, elevator shafts and maintenance areas are all restricted. Students found to have accessed restricted areas will be subject to the residence conduct process.
