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

Please view the FIR & Tutor Newsletter for more details.

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.
