Rules and Responsibilities


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 Community Living Guide

The Residence Community Living Guide is designed to make your introduction to residence easier by outlining our community’s expectations. In this document you will 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.

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.

Substance-free residences

Please note: Additional policies put in place due to COVID-19 mean that our residences will be substance free at least for the month of September. Students will not be permitted to consume or be in possession of alcohol or non-prescribed cannabis within residences during this time. Please see the Appendix to the Residence Code of Conduct for more details.
