Prior to the Resident’s first payment of Residence Fees, the Resident must pay a deposit (the “Deposit”) to be held by the Manager and applied to the cost of repairing damage to the Room, any additional cleaning charges, and to any unpaid amounts owing by the Resident under this Agreement. The amount of the deposit is detailed in Table 3. Upon the Withdrawal of this Agreement, provided that there are no damage claims or unpaid amounts then owing, the Deposit will be refunded to the Resident as described in section 8 of this Agreement.

The Resident must pay the “Residence Fees” in accordance with the Rates and Payment Schedules detailed in Table 3 for the right to occupy a Room during the Term. Tables 2 and 3 also detail additional Fees that the Resident is subject to. If a hard copy of this agreement is required by the Manager, the Resident is required to select one of the payment schedule options, by initialling their desired option.

Written Notice of Withdrawal of Residency will be delivered to the Resident, and if necessary, the Manager may notify the Primary or Secondary Contact by phone or e-mail of the Withdrawal of the Resident’s residency. If the Resident is unavailable to receive service of the notice in person, then delivery of the notice to the Resident’s Room shall be deemed proper service and delivery. The Resident will be allowed 24 hours from the date and time of delivery of the Notice of Withdrawal of Residency to fully vacate and remove all personal belongings from the Residence.

Cancellations occur prior to the Resident occupying the Room. If the Resident wishes to cancel this Agreement or their residence application, the Resident must notify the Manager in writing via the online residence cancellation process prior to occupying the Room. Withdrawals occur after the Resident has occupied the Room. If the Resident wishes to withdraw from Residence, the Resident must complete a Residence Withdrawal Form and return it to the Front Desk within 5 business days of the anticipated departure date. Please note that the Residence operates independently from the Institution and if the Resident cancels their application or enrolment at the Institution, they will also need to cancel their Residence application. Refunds will be issued by the Manager as detailed in section 8.06.

If the Resident vacates the Room for a period greater than 15 days prior to the expiry of the Term without the Manager’s prior agreement, the Room will be deemed abandoned by the Resident. In that event, the Manager may (i) repossess the Room without liability to the Manager, and (ii) enter into an agreement for the occupancy of the Room with a third party.

Upon the Withdrawal of the privileges of this Agreement, the Resident shall vacate the Room within the time frame given, and deliver to the Manager vacant possession of the Room together with all of the furnishings, fixtures, and appliances of the Residence, and the furnishings and fixtures shall be in good condition, with reasonable wear and tear excepted. The Resident will follow the Move-out Procedures explained in section 3.02 of this Agreement and all additional directions communicated by the Manager.

If the Resident does not vacate the Residence on the expiry or early Withdrawal of this Agreement, (i) the Resident is liable for any financial loss sustained or incurred by the Institution or the Manager, and (ii) the Manager may remove the property of the Resident from the Room (whether or not the Resident is present at the time), and place the property in temporary storage in a location in the Residence of the Manager’s choice, at the Resident’s expense, without notice to the Resident and without liability to the Manager for any damage to or loss of the Resident’s property.

Upon the Withdrawal of this Agreement or residence application by the Resident, as detailed in section 8.02, the Residence may be entitled to a partial refund of Residence Fees, without interest, within ten (10) weeks of the Resident vacating the Residence or cancelling their residence application. The refund will be in the form of a cheque mailed to the Resident’s permanent address on file in the Resident’s name only. If a student requires a cheque to be reissued as a result of the resident not providing an updated address prior to vacating residence and/or canceling their residence application, a charge of $50.00 may be applied. Refunds are issued based on the following:

(i) If the Resident’s written cancellation request is received by the Residence Manager on or before Deadline 1, whether the Resident has been accepted into Residence or not, the Resident will receive a full refund of the Deposit and any Residence Fees paid to date.

The Deposit will  refunded less any damages, charges or money owing to the Residence.

(iii) If the Residence Manager receives the Resident’s written cancellation request after the first day of the Term (Deadline 2) then the Resident will be charged for the whole Term. The Resident must complete all Move-out Procedures detailed in section 3.02. The Deposit will be refunded less any damages, charges or money owing to the Residence.

(iv) If the Resident is on the wait list for Residence and the Residence Manager receives a written cancellation request before the Resident is accepted to Residence, then the Resident will be refunded the full Deposit.
