Welcome to the Housing Conference Services e-newsletter. Monthly e-newsletters are our way of keeping you informed and updated on what's happening in Residence. It's important to check your email throughout the summer and the academic year; this is how we stay in touch with you.
We need your Photo!
As part of our security protocol, we require you to upload a recent photo of yourself to the Residence Portal. Having your photo in our system allows us to confirm your identity should you lock yourself (and your ID) out of your room. Visit the Residence Portal and log-in to your application: the Photo Upload step can be found within the application. Without an uploaded photo, you will not be able see your room assignment.
Here are some tips regarding your photo:
Picture must be of your head and shoulders (just like a passport photo)
It must be clear, sharp and in focus
Cannot include anyone else in the picture
Yes, you can smile!
Residence Assignments are now available. In order to view your assignment, you must upload your photo (for returning students with a picture on file – this step isn't necessary).
Select the Photo Upload step and upload a recent photo.
Once your photo has been uploaded, click on the Application Status step; your room and roommate(s) will be noted here.
Contact your roommate(s) (if applicable) through the portal – to ensure your privacy, no email addresses are released. Include your email address in your message so your new roommate(s) can easily contact you.
Please note: allocations are done by lottery. Assignments are final!
