Move-in During School Year

If you are moving into residence outside of the main fall move-in dates, you will need to check-in at the Campus Service Centre during office hours. If you are arriving outside of office hours, please contact the Campus Service Centre to see if there is availability for after hours check-in.

Make sure that the Campus Service Centre is aware of your move-in date, so they are able to check you in properly. To make your check-in smooth:

  • Make sure you have signed your Residence Agreement, through your Resident Portal. 
  • You have photo ID

Once you have moved in, make sure to read the Now What Guide, to help you figure out your new home.
