Residence Fees & Contract Appeals Committee

This is a great way for students to get involved, gain experience for their resume and truly make an impact.

In the fall of 2015, Waterloo Residences started holding students financially responsible for the entirety of their residence contract. Now if a student decides to leave Waterloo Residences they are required to pay for any remaining time left on their contract. However, if a student has a valid reason to withdraw from the University of Waterloo (medical, compassionate, required to withdraw or repeat), they may apply for an appeal and if successful, receive financial relief (refund).

This committee meets 3 times per year (June, September and January) and includes Waterloo Housing and Residence staff as well as a student representative. If you are interested in being on the committee for our June hearing or have any questions, please contact Jessica Scott, Customer Experience Specialist.
