Moving Out – April 2022

Moving residences is permitted under Ontario’s stay-at-home order. As such, residents are still required to move and we would ask that they do so safely.

You won’t know where the time went…

Blink and you’ll miss it! The year will be over before you know it, and as a Residence student you will have a check-out procedure to complete before your summer can officially begin!  All students are required to vacate your room no later than midnight the day following your final exam. Students with no take homes/exams are required to vacate their residence room by 12:00 am midnight on April 17, 2022. You will receive an email containing specific move out information. Check out procedures will be posted on all floors.

Checking Out

Remember that residents sharing a double room, bathroom and a suite are equally responsible for the condition and furnishings of these areas.

Be COVID wise:

  • W – Wear a mask or face covering where required, or when you cannot maintain a physical distance of two metres (six feet).
  • I – Isolate yourself from others when you are sick (and get tested promptly if you have COVID-like symptoms).
  • S – Stay two metres (six feet) apart from those outside your household or your chosen social support person(s).
  • E – Exercise proper hand hygiene; wash your hands regularly or use sanitizer especially before touching your face.
  • Each resident is permitted one person to assist with moving your items out of your room.

Following is a check-list which will help you to prepare for moving out:

Room Inspectors will check bedrooms, suite areas and bathrooms for the following.

  • All garbage has been removed and placed in dumpsters.
  • All furniture is in place and is in good repair.
  • Carpet has been vacuumed.
  • All posters, tape, or markings have been removed from walls, windows and ceilings.

  • Desk and vanity top wiped clean.
  • All drawers and cupboards empty and wiped clean.
  • Bathroom floor, bathtub, shower, sink and toilet all clean.
