The Residence complex will be closed and locked commencing at 2:00 pm, on Friday, December 23, 2016 to noon, Wednesday, January 4, 2017.
Students making travel arrangements, please take note of the above dates.
Students who originally indicated on their Residence Information Form that they needed to remain in Residence during the December closedown period (December 23-January 4), were assigned accommodation in a building designated to remain open for this period: Leeds, Prescott, Frontenac, Glengarry or Lennox and Addington. These students will be personally contacted by the Department to finalize the arrangements and pay an additional fee.
Campus Card access to security doors will be deactivated as of 2:00 pm on December 23, 2016, until noon on January 4, 2017. University Safety staff will be on duty, regularly patrolling the floors throughout the closure.
Students who have not previously identified, but now require accommodations over the closedown are asked to register by completing and submitting the December Closedown Request Form by the deadline of December 9th. You will receive confirmation of your application and further instructions regarding approval and payment.
The cost to remain in Residence is:
$190 for suite-style accommodations
$150 for traditional accommodations.
During the closedown period, there are no food services operating in the Residence Complex. The last meal served in the Residence Dining Hall will be lunch on December 23, 2016. The first meal served after the closedown is dinner on January 4, 2017.
If you are approved to stay over the closedown period, no overnight guests are permitted during the closure.
Required to Return Early?
Requests for early arrival will be considered for students living in Leeds, Prescott, Frontenac, Glengarry or Lennox and Addington. Students must still register and make payment with the Housing Office so access can be arranged.
Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate early arrivals for buildings closed until January 4th.
Permission to stay/return early will not be considered for students who have previously violated the Residence Contract.
Students NOT returning to Residence for Winter Term are not eligible to extend their stay beyond December 23, 2016, as rooms need to be checked and cleaned for incoming winter term students.
Students returning for the Winter term and not staying over the closure may leave their belongings in their room. Students are reminded to pack all valuables and items needed while away as there will be no access to the buildings, floors, and rooms during the closure.
