COVID-19 Updates

Updated: August 6th, 2020

Room Occupancy

At this time, our structure is to place students in a location where they will not need to share a bathroom. This means that a Four Bedroom Unit will have a maximum of two students. Two Bedroom Units will have a maximum of 1 student. Housing fees can be found here.

Move-In Day

At this time, we anticipate Move-In Day to be August 29th and 30th, 2020. Information regarding move in day will be sent to students who have applied to residence and placed into a room. Please make sure you are checking your email regularly for the most updated information. 

Health and Safety

Students living in residence who are experiencing symptoms are expected to contact Residence Services right away. Residence Services has dedicated rooms to allow for symptomatic residents and residents with COVID-19 and their close contacts to isolate. Arrangements will be made to ensure these students are receiving necessary resources and support during this time. 

  • Proper elevator and stairwell etiquette is expected of all students living in residence.
  • Each day, our staff are regularly disinfecting all doors, commonly used spaces and high touch surfaces
  • As of August 1, 2020, everyone is required to wear a mask indoors. Residents don't need to wear masks inside their units but are encouraged to wear them where they can't maintain physical distancing (hallways, front desk, outside).

Guests Within Residence

ANY guests, both non residents and current residents are not to be invited over to your unit. We will be issuing a $100.00 fine to hosts for each guest that is invited to your unit. Residents are encouraged to call the front office, RA on call (after hours) or Security if they find individuals not following this policy. 

We're encouraging residents at this time to enjoy outdoor visits. While outside, all appropriate precautions should be taken to prevent exposure to COVID-19, including maintaining 2 metres between people.

Deferrals

If you want to change your fall/winter or fall only application to winter term, please contact residence@mtroyal.ca. At this time , we cannot guarantee that a unit will be available for winter due to capacity restrictions.  We will notify people in this situation as early as possible in fall term if we anticipate not having a space available in winter term.
