Pick Your Move-In Date anD Time

We want to make this process as seamless as possible for you. Following public health guidelines of physical distancing, and to allow international and out-of-province students flexibility in booking flights, we are limiting the number of students who can move-in at one-time over specific dates.

Students will be required to select a move-in date and time on the Residence Portal before arriving to campus. Please make sure to select a time slot as soon as possible as spots are only available on a first-come, first serve basis.

A maximum of 3 students will be able to move into residence per hour. Each student will be assigned to an elevator and will only be able to bring 2 helpers with them to move into residence.
