Quiet Hours
It is important that quiet hours are followed out of respect for your neighbours and community. Every building and hall/floor in residence has standardized quiet hours. They are as follows:
  • Sunday – Thursday : begin at 10:00 pm, end at 8:00 am
  • Friday – Saturday : begin at 12:00 am, end at 10:00 am
  • 24 Hour Exam Quiet Hours; relaxed hours between 5:00 pm-7:00 pm*
*Only during April and December exam periods
 
Please note: Quiet hours require a reasonable amount of quiet. While it is expected that residents keep volume to a minimum, staff will do their best to encourage quiet and address concerns. The department cannot guarantee complete quiet and it is important to remember we require your co-operation and respect when enforcing this policy.
 
Study Spaces
There are study lounges located in every building. Lounges are spaces where quiet talking and working in a group is acceptable. Study lounges are spaces where residents are expected to engage in quiet, individual study. These lounges are provided for students so they have a distraction-free area to complete homework and study.
The Faculty-in-Residence (FIR) program is one of the many advantages to choosing Residence. The FIR is a professor who lives in Residence and co-ordinates the provision of a number of academic supports and services. Through this program students receive:
  • The opportunity to connect with a faculty member outside of the classroom for consultation on a range of academic concerns
  • High quality tutoring in major undergraduate subject areas (provided by graduate students)
  • Access to academic events, workshops and seminars within the residence community
Talk to your RA and check the signage in your area for further details on the program.

The residence community is not only in close proximity to on-campus academic supports such as Student Learning Services (SLS) but also works with them to ensure residents receive as many academic advantages as possible. Academic advisors from a variety of colleges regularly visit residence, and the SLS works with residence to provide special programming. For more information on the programs available in residence, ask your RA.
