Occupancy Agreement & Cancellation Policy

The University reserves the right to terminate your housing application if you do not select an accommodation as part of the regular Housing Selection process, or within 2 weeks of application (if not participating in the regular Housing Selection process) or by any other deadlines communicated by Community Development. Termination prior to selecting an accommodation does not accrue any termination fees.


The University reserves the right to amend this agreement and may from time to time issue changes regarding Housing policies or procedures in addition to those found online in the Student Guide to Resources, Rights and Responsibilities. The University may take disciplinary action against a resident and/or terminate this agreement for failure by any person occupying the residential unit to comply with the terms of this agreement. You may view and print a copy of the Occupancy Agreement by logging into the Housing Application on-line or by viewing the Occupancy Agreement reference copy.


A resident may cancel this agreement with written notification only prior to a housing accommodation being assigned by Community Development. After a housing assignment has been made, the agreement and financial obligation cannot be cancelled by the resident. After a housing assignment has been made, a resident may request and be given an Early Termination of the agreement but only for the following reasons and under the circumstances stated:

  1. Graduation from the University.
  2. Marriage.
  3. Full-time internship or job co-op that requires off-campus housing.
  4. Study Abroad.
  5. Authorized leave of absence or withdrawal from the University.

Note. You may not cancel your contract as a result of having signed a lease for another, off-campus, housing accommodation. You would be required to comply with both financial obligations. The University does allow you to cancel a submitted housing application only if done so in writing prior to a housing accommodation being assigned to you by Community Development.

Also Note. If you cancel your contract after a housing accommodation has been assigned, and are continuing as a student, it will be expected that you will be commuting from home. Failure to do so may result in your contract being re-instated.
