Residence Policies and Procedures

The Department of Residence employs professional, support and student staff. They act as resource personnel and agents of the Department of Residence and are responsible for ensuring that you abide by rules and regulations. You must clearly and honestly identify yourself to any residence staff when asked to do so.

Individual residence halls may formulate additional rules for their own building communities, providing such rules are consistent with rules outlined and approved by the Department of Residence. Any such rules are binding on all students.

Students are bound by the laws of Canada and the Province of Ontario, and by the university and Department of Residence policies and regulations, including the Wilfrid Laurier University Student Code of Conduct.

You will be required to abide by all rules, regulations and guidelines outlined in the Residence Hall Agreement. This agreement is detailed within the "Terms and Conditions" section of the online residence application, and you will be required to agree to these terms as part of the application process. You will also be advised of policies through the Residence Guidebook and by residence staff upon your arrival to residence.
