Cancelling an application before move-in day

Students who want to cancel their residence application must do so in writing to Student Housing and Residence Life.  Cancelling your UTSC academic registration does not automatically cancel your residence application. If you wish to cancel your residence application, email, with your full name, student number, residence session you would like to cancel, and the reason for cancellation.

A refund of 50% of the residence deposit, or $500, will be granted for cancellations received from June 1, 2020 to July 29, 2020. No refund of the residence deposit will be granted for cancellations received from July 30, 2020 to August 15, 2020. Cancellations received after August 15, will result in a forfeiture of the $1000 residence deposit, in addition to a $650 withdrawal fee.

Failure to Check-in

Failure to check in by September 11th, 2020 at noon will result in the Residence Agreement being cancelled and the deposit forfeited. Exceptions will be made for Residents who request permission in advance from Student Housing & Residence Life and receive written confirmation. Should a student fail to arrive by the date stated in the written confirmation, the student will forfeit their deposit and will be responsible for Residence Fees outlined here. A $650 withdrawal fee also applies.

Withdrawal from Residence after move-in day

If a Resident chooses to withdraw from the Residence for any reason, a $650 withdrawal fee is charged for early termination of this Agreement. In addition, the Resident will also be responsible for a percentage of the occupancy session they have registered for, as listed below. The percentage charged applies to the check-out date whereby the Room has been completely emptied and the keys have been returned to Student Housing & Residence Life. All requests for withdrawal must be submitted in writing to Student Housing & Residence Life a minimum of two (2) weeks prior to the date of departure. Failure to do so will result in a $600 administrative fee.  The withdrawal forms are available at the Reception & Services desk of the Student Housing and Residence Life Office and can be viewed here for your reference.

If you are withdrawing from the University of Toronto Scarborough as well as from Residence, Residence Fees will be pro-rated so that the Resident is responsible for only those days that they occupied their Residence Room. A $650 withdrawal fee also applies.

Any student considering or planning on withdrawing from residence during a session must meet with the Residence Life Coordinator. To book an appointment, please visit the Reception & Services desk or email us.
