Moving In

How to pack

Residence is fully furnished so all you need to add are personal touches!

Keep in mind that there is limited storage space. Leave at home things that could be brought later in the year. You can also contact your roommates through the Residence Portal before you move in to discuss sharing common items like kitchenware.

Decorating your unit

Residence is going to be your home over the next year, so we encourage you to make it feel homey. However, we do expect you to follow a few simple rules:

  • Respect your neighbours, the facilities and furniture.
  • Please use the adhesive strips provided to by Residence Services to affix items to walls.
  • Do not affix any additional hooks, mirrors or whiteboards on any surface.
  • Do not display bottles, cans, posters, flags or any type of advertisements in windows.
  • No offensive material is permitted in places where it could possibly be seen by the public (for example; windows, doors).
