You may indicate on the Residence Information Form if you wish to live in a special interest community. Please understand that while we strive to accommodate all students, we may not be able to fulfill all requests.
These areas are for students who wish to live in a quieter environment during the school year.
“Quieter” means there should be no audible sounds outside of rooms, floor hallways, common areas, and lounges. Extra consideration related to noise is expected during the December and April examination periods.
These standards apply to all residents and guests visiting these floors. Residence Life Staff in these communities will work with all members of the community to define these additional expectations at the start of the academic year.
Violation of Quieter Floor standards?
In case of violations, residents should try to have a discussion amongst each other, or report to staff if unable to self-resolve.
Violations of these quieter floor standards may result in further actions from the Department of Housing and Residence Life Services, including an administrative imposed room change from this area.
This is an option for students who commit to maintaining a living environment free from substances, which include alcohol, tobacco, smokeless tobacco, cannabis, drugs, drug paraphernalia or illegally obtained prescription medications.
Residents of legal age of majority (19 in Ontario) are not allowed to possess and use these products within these designated areas, and are expected to not return to these floors while under influence of substances.
To respect the rights of residents in this community, these expectations also apply to guests visiting these areas.
