We can't believe how fast time goes! Time to get ready for a new term. We apologize for any move-out inconveniences as we prepare Waterloo Residences for the next term ahead.
You will receive an email confirmation from Waterloo Residences on November 16, 2015 indicating the move-out procedures for your residence community. First-year students are expected to move-out 24-hours after their confirmed move-out date. Good luck with exams! Learn more about requesting an extension of your stay in residence this term.
All upper-year students are eligible to remain in residence until the last possible date. For fall term, the latest move-out date is Wednesday, December 23 by 12 p.m. noon. Upper-years are of course able to move-out earlier than this date, but an extension past December 23 at 12 p.m. is not possible.
Your move-out date is Thursday, December 31, by 12 p.m. noon.*There are no exceptions to this move-out deadline.
Please return your key to avoid a $50 fee for a lock change:
Keys must be returned on the day you move out unless you are returning to the same residence room in January (then you may keep your keys over the break). If you are not returning until May, you must hand in your keys in December.
Dropboxes have been provided at MKV, MH, and CLV for key returns outside of regular operating hours.
Graduate students leaving on the last day of undergraduate exams (December 23) must return their keys by December 31.
How do I get an Extension Request?
Are you staying in the same room?
If you're returning to the same room in January, it's not necessary to remove your belongings or to return keys. We do suggest that you take home any valuables.
Are you changing rooms or residence building?
If you are not returning to the same room next term, an inspection will take place to assess standards
of cleanliness. Items left behind will be disposed of which will also result in a charge to your account.
Between term storage options
Are you an international, out-of-province, or student with a postal code beginning with K or P?
You may submit a Storage Request to make arrangements for your belongings between terms.
If you do not meet the storage request criteria, check out Store Your Dorm for short term options.
