Important Update Regarding the Residence Extended Term & Move-out
May 17, 2018
This is an important message about your residence occupancy, move-out, the ongoing labour disruption, course remediation, summer session dates and Summer Residence.
Recently, you received two communications from Lisa Philipps, Interim Vice President Academic & Provost, that can be reviewed at the links below:
- Information about Summer 2018 session, Graduation and Convocation (http://vp.students.yorku.ca/node/145)
- Clarifying remediation of the Y and W terms, and course offerings for SU and S1 (http://vp.students.yorku.ca/node/149)
As noted, York intends to provide a variety of flexible options for completing the term once the labour disruption ends. We understand that you likely wish to move on with your summer plans as many of your fellow residents already have. Therefore, given the Senate policy on the Academic Implications of Disruptions or Cessations of University Business Due to Labour Disputes or Other Causes and the various remediation options now available to students, we are bringing to a close the extended 2017-2018 Fall/Winter residence term.
As summer session dates have been announced, we are moving forward with our summer residence program with associated fees. Winter term residents are to move out by Thursday, May 31, 2018 unless accepted into Summer Residence. If you already have moved out but have not returned your keys, please email email@example.com for further instructions.
If you have extenuating circumstances that impacts your ability to move out by May 31, 2018 or if you are enrolled in a course where in-person remediation is the only option, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org by May 24, 2018. Please note, to provide essential services we continue to assess the need to consolidate residents and relocate residents as required.
Winter term residents who remain past the 31st of May 2018 for whatever reason will be responsible for residence fees.
We thank you for your continued patience during the labour disruption.
