You are required to leave residence at 9:00pm on the night of your last exam, or by 12 noon on April 30, 2016 whichever comes first.

You may want to consider moving the majority of your belongings out the weekend before your final exam and keep only the essentials you need for studying. This allows you more time to move your belongings out on the weekend and your final move-out during the week will be that much quicker and easier.

Extension Requests

Extended Stay Request

If you need to stay longer than 9 pm on the day of your last exam, you must submit an extension request. Extension requests must be submitted into the Housing & Residence Life by April 8, 2016. 


Staying for the Summer

Are you going to be in the city for the summer?  Have you thought about living in residence?  There are spaces available in Pitman Hall.  Don't delay, apply for a space in residence today! If you are planning on staying in residence for the summer please come to the Housing & Residence Life office to complete an extension request package. Instructions for the change over from school year to the summer will be included in that package.

Quiet Hours

Year long quiet hours:
Saturday-Sunday 1am-10am
Sunday-Thursday 11pm-8am

Exam periods : 24 hours a day*

  • 1st Semester exam quiet hours start: 1:00am December 2, 2016
  • 2nd Semester exam quiet hours start:11:00pm April 14, 2017
  • 8pm - 9pm nightly there will be no quiet hours to relax and be able to make moderate noise.

During quiet hours, we ask that you respect your neighbors and ensure that you aren’t disrupting their study time. Stereos, TV's, etc. should be kept at a low volume (or use headphones) and room doors should be kept closed. Noise that can be heard outside of a room or lounge is not permitted. Treat others as you would like to be treated the night before a big exam!

*24 hour quiet hours are relaxed daily between 8 pm - 9 pm to allow for moderate levels of noise.

No Overnight Guests

Unfortunately, during the exam period, no overnight guests are permitted in residence. Again, this is to reduce the risk of noise and distractions.

Beginning Friday April 15 at 8:00 pm overnight guests cannot be signed into the residences.  Regular guest sign-ins will resume for 11 month residents on May 2, 2016 at 12 noon.

If you need to have an overnight guest during the exam period please complete a (PDF) guest exemption request form available in the Housing & Residence Life office.  Forms are due to the Housing & Residence Life office by April 8.

Room Inspections

A thorough room inspection will be completed after you have moved out.  If you would like the room inspection to be completed while you are present you can make an appointment with Housing & Residence Life for the day of your move out.  Please book your appointment before April 8th, 2016.

Lock Your Room

Please ensure that your door is closed and locked when you leave, as you are responsible for the room until we have completed your room inspection.  You are NOT permitted to allow anyone to stay in your room after you move-out.

Garbage Removal

Your room must be returned to the condition it was in when you arrived.  All belongings should be removed - garbage and recycling must be properly disposed of and NOT left in your room. If extra cleaning or garbage removal is required, you may be assessed an extra fee - please refer to the Repair and Replacement Charges Guide for more information.

During the move-out period, there is increased demand on the garbage systems in all 3 buildings.  Your cooperation is appreciated, in order to ensure the buildings remain clean throughout the exam and move-out period.  All garbage and recycling must be bagged and disposed of in accordance with the directions posted.  Further information on garbage and recycling will be emailed and posted on your floor in the coming weeks. 


If you rearranged your furniture please return all items to their proper position, and ensure there are no extra furniture items in your room or in the common areas of your suite.  There is a fine for each extra and/or missing piece of furniture in your room - please refer to the Repair and Replacement Charges Guide for more information.

Damage/Excess Cleaning

You are responsible for the condition of your room.  If your room is not left in a satisfactory condition you may be assessed damage, cleaning or replacement charges - please see the Repair and Replacement Charges Guide for more information.  If charges are necessary, you will be informed via letter in May, along with more details regarding the condition of your room.

ILLC Modems

The modem in your room will be used by students next year, so please leave it in the room along with the telephone cable and power adapter.  If any of these three pieces are missing during your room inspection you may be assessed a fee for replacement - please see the Repair and Replacement Charges Guide for more information.

Moving Carts

To ease your move, you will want to ask family and friends to bring carts and dollies with them in possible.  We have a very limited number of carts that will be in high demand.

Hand In your Keys
  1. Remove all of your belongings and ensure your room is clean
  2. Close and ensure your room door is locked
  3. Come to a Residence Services Desk
  4. Put your keys in the provided envelope
  5. Hand in your keys (room key, mailbox key, and residence I.D. card)
Pay All Outstanding Fees

It is important that your RAMSS Account is paid in full by the end of April. This includes tuition fees, residence fees, phone bills, and any miscellaneous charges. Any student with an outstanding balance will have an academic hold placed on their record which prevents viewing of final grades and could block future course registration.


Any mail that is received after you move out and after April 30, 2016 will be Returned To Sender. Please inform your friends, relatives, schools, bank, credit card companies, etc. of your new summer address as soon as possible.
