Rates & Fees

Winter holiday closure

Residence will be closed from December 23, 2020 to January 4, 2021 for the annual winter holiday closure. Residence fees do not cover the university closure period. The cost to stay is $50.00 for the duration of the closure.

The application is now available on the Rez Portal. You can click on the link and it will direct you to the portal.

If you stay in your unit and fail to fill out the holiday closure form, you will be charged the nightly hotel rate from December 23, 2020 to January 4, 2021. The nightly hotel rates are $59.95 per night if you are living in a 4 bedroom unit and $76.30 per night if you are living in a 2 bedroom unit.

If you are moving out at the end of the Fall semester, please see our check-out procedures.

Staying during winter holiday closure

To stay in Residence for all or part of the closure, you must complete a holiday closure application form through the Residence Portal and submit it no later than December 10, 2020.

You can stay in Residence during the winter holiday closure only if you are returning to residence in January. Extra fees will apply.

It is very important that students inform Residence Services if they are planning to stay for any duration of the break as we must check all unoccupied units several times to ensure we are compliant with our insurance.

Leaving for winter holiday closure

As you leave for the winter holiday closure, please be sure to:

  • Turn off all your lights
  • Close all windows and lock all doors
  • Throw away all garbage
  • Remove perishable food
  • Ensure your thermostat is set to at least 16° Celsius
