Providing you have submitted a proper photo to the OneCard office by August 15, 2018, your OneCard will be available for pick-up with your keys on Move-In Day.
We will provide dollies and trolleys however if you have your own you may want to bring it to help the flow of traffic.
Yes, we have volunteers from all over campus to help you move in your belongings on Sunday August 26, 2018.
If you're moving in on a different day than Aug. 26, we encourage you to ask your friends or family members to help you move in your belongings.
No, the student has to be present in order to receive your keys for your room. Your parents or other family members are not able to move your things in for you. If you are not able to move in on August 26th you can move-in later that week. If you would like to move in later, please fill out the Late Move-In Tracking form.
No, due to privacy policies that the University is bound by, we cannot disclose your or your roommate’s information to one another. You will meet your roommates on move-in day. If you’re worried about what items you’ll share, remember that you’ll be in downtown Toronto, so it’s easy to pick up any items you may need.
Yes! You are allowed to have overnight guests for a maximum of three consecutive nights. Out of consideration, suite mate consent is required prior to inviting any overnight guests to stay with you. Guests must provide valid photo ID and be signed into the building. It is your responsibility to inform them of the building policies and appropriate behaviour in res before you take them upstairs. Exceptions: Prior to August 26th, during Orientation Week & exam periods no overnight guests are allowed in the buildings.
If you are in Pitman or ILC, you can bring a mini-fridge (3.2 cubic feet) for your room. We discourage students from bringing a mini-fridge in HOEM, as there is already a full-sized fridge provided in the kitchen. As utilities are not included in HOEM, mini-fridges can take up energy that could be best used elsewhere.
If you are living in Pitman or ILC, you can bring these appliances to residence however you are not allowed to use them in your room. If you would like to use the toaster, kettle or etc. you can do so in the lounge kitchen on your floor. All lounges already have microwaves. If you are living in HOEM, HOEM already provides these appliances in the kitchen.
You can bring a bike to residence however you are not allowed to keep it in your bedroom. For students in Pitman or ILC, there is a bike locker in Pitman Hall that you can leave your bike in after you give a $10 key deposit. If you live in HOEM, there is indoor bike parking and you can sign up for access to the bike storage space through the front desk.
There is no extra storage space in the residences so we cannot store any of the current furniture that is in your room. For this reason you are not able to bring your own furniture. The furniture provided must remain in the room.
Anything you bring with you will need to be stored in your room. Try to pack most of your belongings in collapsible/recyclable containers.
Once you move everything in you will have a chance to meet everyone on your floor. At 4 pm on the 27th you will have your mandatory first floor meeting. From there you will be taken to a residence BBQ, opening ceremonies and many other fun orientation activities, check out orientation.ryerson.ca for more details!

ILC - has internet available via ethernet cable in each of the rooms, however there is no WiFi available. Students may want to bring a router to plug into the modem provided in the room to access WiFi. Otherwise, please bring an ethernet cable to access the wired internet in the room.
