Our residence philosophy
It is essential that individuals respect the rights of their fellow residents, including the right to privacy, property, study and rest. All residents have equal opportunity to share common facilities. Only by respecting others’ rights can you expect to have your own rights respected. The spirit of the residence community is one of mutual respect and cooperation, with each resident having the right and obligation to remind fellow residents of their responsibilities if their behaviour departs from reasonable standards.
Residence Code of Conduct
The Residence Code of Conduct is designed to make your introduction to residence easier by outlining our community’s expectations. In the Code of Conduct you'll find:
- guidelines for appropriate behaviour
- university code of student conduct
- policies and regulations
Your Residence Agreement
The Residence Agreement is a contract between you and the university. The purpose of the agreement is to protect both you and the university by outlining the responsibilities of both parties.
Most students will have accepted their agreement through our online residence application process. View a copy of the agreement [PDF 318 kB] for reference purposes only.
Posting notices in residence
You need to submit all posters and advertisements to the Residence Life Manager’s office for approval before you display them, including all residence council posters.
Approved posters will be stamped and can then be posted in designated areas. Residence has the right to remove posters at any time. Approval of notices does not indicate endorsement of goods or services on behalf of the university.
Please note: Howe Hall, Shirreff Hall, Risley Hall, Gerard Hall, and Mini-Residence houses will be substance-free for the duration of the 2019 Orientation Week, until September 9, 2019. Students and their guests are not permitted to consume or be in possession of alcohol or recreational cannabis within those residence buildings during that time.
If you have any questions, please contact the Residence Office.
