Rules, Responsibilities and You

COVID-19 Update: Substance-free residences

Under additional emergency restrictions currently in place due to COVID-19, students are not permitted to consume or be in possession of alcohol or non-prescribed cannabis within residences. Please see the Appendix to the Residence Community Living Guide for more details [PDF].

Support us in supporting your student

University is a turning point in the relationship between you, as a parent or guardian, and your student. Students will have additional freedom, responsibility, and control over their own decisions
 
Although your student is now in university, we know that you can continue to play a positive and influential role. Conversations about important topics such as alcohol use, sex, consent, mental health, diversity and inclusion can have a lasting impact.

We encourage you to talk openly and honestly about these topics before your student arrives on campus. It also helps to learn about the rules, resources and support services that are available at university. This way, when your student shares a problem or concern, instead of trying to fix it for them, you can point them in the right direction and encourage them to act on their own behalf.
