Failure to Check-in

Failure to check in by September 11, 2020 at noon will result in the Residence Agreement being cancelled and the deposit forfeited. Exceptions will be made for Residents who request permission in advance from Student Housing & Residence Life and receive written confirmation. Should a student fail to arrive by the date stated in the written confirmation, the student will forfeit their deposit and will be responsible for Residence Fees outlined in the Residence Withdrawal Form. A $650 withdrawal fee also applies.


Withdrawal from Residence after move-in day

If a Resident chooses to withdraw from the Residence for any reason, a $650 withdrawal fee* is charged for early termination of this Agreement. In addition, the Resident will also be responsible for a percentage of the occupancy session they have registered for, as listed below. The percentage charged applies to the check-out date whereby the Room has been completely emptied and the keys have been returned to Student Housing & Residence Life. All requests for withdrawal must be submitted in writing to Student Housing & Residence Life a minimum of two (2) weeks prior to the date of departure. Failure to do so will result in a $600.00 administrative fee*. 

*Due to current extended COVID-19 restrictions, the $650.00 withdrawal fee and $600.00 administrative fee for insufficient notice are waived when a student withdraws from residence but is still enrolled in courses.


The Withdrawal Form is available at the Reception & Services desk of the Student Housing and Residence Life Office and can be viewed here for your reference:


Residence Withdrawal Form

If you are withdrawing from the University of Toronto Scarborough as well as from Residence, Residence Fees will be pro-rated so that the Resident is responsible for only those days that they occupied their Residence Room. A $650.00 withdrawal fee also applies.

Any student considering or planning on withdrawing from residence during a session must meet with the Residence Life Coordinator. To book an appointment, please visit the Reception & Services desk or email us.
