Dear resident,

A few weeks ago, your stay in residence was extended to June 25 at no cost to you because of your extenuating circumstances related to the labour disruption. We are writing to follow up with you.

You would have recently received a communication from Lucy Fromowitz, Vice-Provost Students, regarding remediation plans for FW17/18 and W18 courses. With the remediation period for completing the balance of in-class teaching now set to take place between July 23 and August 20, followed by an exam period, we are once again extending residence at no cost to our current residents who have outstanding FW17/18 or W18 course grades who still require accommodation in residence to complete their courses.

For students who are now able to complete their courses before, during or following the remediation period, the regular move-out rules will apply: residence move-out is twenty-four (24) hours after you complete the FW 17/18 and/or W18 term either through course completion, final class or exam whichever is applicable to your circumstance. No form is currently required for students in this situation. Students must go to their Housing Office no later than June 25, 2018, to extend the date by which their keycard expires to ensure continued residence access.

For those residents who have completed their FW17/18 and W18 courses, no further action is needed except to simply move out and return your keys by the original residence extension date of June 25. If you still have extenuating circumstance that require residence beyond June 25 for reasons unrelated to course completion, please contact to outline your situation and extenuating circumstances.

Mindful of student safety and wellbeing, some students staying in residence may need to be relocated. We encourage students remaining in residence to visit your residence Facebook group for information about events being offered. Please also consider participating in the activities provided through departments such as the Career Centre, Learning Skills Services, York International and at Tait McKenzie. We also remind students that Student Counselling & Development, or, afterhours, Good2Talk (1-866-925-5454) are available to provide support, in addition to Residence Life staff.
