Guiding Principles for Residence Community Living

Residence Life creates a community environment where our students can feel a sense of belonging, build resilience, and be academically successful. We encourage the personal development of our community members by fostering a sense of belonging, providing a range of educational and academic programming, and holding individuals accountable for violations of the residence behavioural expectations.

The Residence Community Standards, as a part of the overall residence experience, are designed to:

  • Encourage all residents to use and enjoy residence spaces peacefully and safely.
  • Challenge residents to think critically, accept responsibility for their actions, and learn and grow from their experiences.
  • Emphasize the rights, responsibilities, histories, dignity, and academic pursuits of all residents.
  • Provide guidance for residents to understand the expectations of living in a community environment.
  • Emphasize the rights and responsibilities of residents in promoting a safe, healthy, and inclusive environment for all members of their community.
