Q: I’m trying to make my travel plans, can I self isolate in residence for 14 days before move in?
Students who are travelling to campus and need to self isolate as per Public Health guidelines will need to do so prior to moving into residence. Residence space can not be offered to students for this purpose.
Check back often to the University of Waterloo's Residence Information Page for a list of options and resources that can help you find a place to stay during this time. This list should be available by June 26th, 2020. You can also reach out to SJU by email and we can help direct you to more information about your options.
Students are able to make their own decision of the best accommodation option before moving into residence. Students will be required to plan their own activities and make payment directly with the accommodation provider.
Q: I have a study permit but am not sure that I will be able to travel. When do I have to make my final decision to live in residence in order to receive my deposit refund?
Any student with a study permit will be provided additional flexibility when finalizing their plans for Fall 2020. If you are no longer able to come to campus as intended, please let us know.
If your decision is made once you have a contract, please contact Jess Huston to receive a refund of your residence deposit.
We understand that plans have and will continue to change as we approach the Fall 2020 term. Therefore, please let us know before move in if you will not be arriving.
If you are arriving from out-of-province, internationally, or are travelling from a significant distance, please complete the Early Move-In Request Form on eRezLife by Friday, August 7th, 2020. We can never guarentee that all early-move in requests will be approved. Approval of these requests will be communicated throughout the summer. Early move-in requires these requests to be approved - you will not be granted early-move in unless this approval has been communicated.
