The University of King’s College (hereafter called the “University”) and the student named below (hereafter called the “Student”) covenant and agree together that:
The student shall not assign or sublet any or all part of the Premises to any other person or allow the Premises to be occupied by any person other than those registered with the Residence Office without the written consent of the University;
Students are entitled to occupy their rooms after 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, September 5, 2021. The residence closes at the end of term on December 20. 2021, and April 27, 2022. In all cases, the student must vacate the residence within twenty-four (24) hours of their final academic commitment in each academic term.
The student agrees to remain in residence for the duration of the academic year as set out in the 2021-2022 Academic Calendar. Any student who wishes to leave residence during the academic year will be held responsible for their residence fees for the entire academic year, or until a replacement acceptable to the University is found. Students who wish to live in residence for only one term must indicate this intention in writing to the Residence Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) when submitting their application. The first preference for rooms will be given to those students intending to stay for both Fall and Winter terms.
To withdraw early from residence, the student must complete a request to withdraw form and submit the form five business ahead of the withdrawal date via the residence portal.
Withdrawal granted on medical grounds must be substantiated by medical documentation within 30 calendar days after the date of withdrawal.
An additional administrative fee of $175.00 will be levied in the case of early withdrawal from an assigned room. Students evicted from residence will remain responsible for all residence fees.
Early withdrawal may be granted if the Student graduates, undertakes a co-op placement, internship or practicum required for academic purposes outside the metro area, or cannot continue in residence for other reasons acceptable to the University. The University shall have sole discretion in determining what constitutes valid grounds for early withdrawal from residence. It is the student’s responsibility to provide written notification to the Residence Office that they will not be remaining in residence for the full academic year at least five business days prior to their departure from residence in these cases.
Students who fail to submit a request to withdraw, return their keys, and complete a timely departure will be charged a non-refundable $250 improper check-out fee.
All rooms must be returned to the condition in which the student moved into the space. Any significant cleaning or biohazard clean-up will result in fines being applied to the student’s account.
The student agrees to pay the University the appropriate residence fee as outlined in the Payments Guide.
The student must be enrolled as a student in good standing at the University. If the student’s university enrollment is terminated for any reason, this agreement is also terminated, and they shall vacate the Premises within twenty-four (24) hours of the date upon which they cease to hold good standing status.
The student acknowledges access to and having read the University’s Academic Calendar, the Residence Guidelines, both as amended from time to time, whether before or after the date of this agreement. The student agrees to be bound by all of the rules and regulations contained therein relating to occupying the Premises, and further agree that their family or guests will also be bound by the rules and regulations.

The student shall not, during occupancy, alter or change or cause to be altered the lock or locking system on any door that gives entry to the Premises;
The University will not be liable for loss of, damage to, or theft of personal belongings. Students are advised to carry adequate personal insurance to cover loss or damage to their belongings.
