Living on campus is fun, safe and convenient

Living in Michener’s student residence, you immediately have a network of peers to work on assignments or study with; you are close to classes, computer labs and the library and you are within walking distance of downtown amenities! At Michener, our residence population tends to be a mature group of students who value both their residence experience and their education. Our residence building is co-ed, has twenty-four-hour security and is located directly on campus.  Apply to residence.

Mandatory Vaccination Required for Michener Residence

Students planning on living in Michener’s Residence, Schatz Hall, are required to have at least their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccination prior to move in.

Michener has a commitment to the health and safety of our students and our community. Vaccines have been recognized by authorities as a safe, and effective way to protect you and those around you from serious illness due to COVID-19.  There were several reasons taken into consideration to determine this requirement which included:

  1. Many Ontario universities and colleges are requiring students living in residence to have their COVID-19 vaccinations. University of Toronto’s decision was supported by local public health authorities in Toronto and Peel
  2. Public Health Ontario recommends COVID-19 vaccination for all residents in congregate living settings.
  3. There have been higher rates of cases in younger population groups.
  4. Council of the Faculty of Medicine (COFM) has released guidelines that COVID-19 vaccination is required for clinical placements. Medical learners who choose not to have COVID-19 vaccination are to be notified that hospital policies may preclude them from clinical placements or require antiviral prophylaxis and immunization in the event of a COVID-19 outbreak. It is anticipated that health sciences program will also adopt the same policy.

 

COVID-19 Vaccination Frequently Asked Questions:

What do I need to move into Residence? Students should have their first dose prior to their move-in date, with Michener strongly recommending they receive their first dose at least 14 days before moving in. Students in Ontario looking to book a vaccination appointment can start here.

How do I confirm I have been vaccinated? Michener will send an email on how to confirm vaccination.  Please keep any emails, receipts or records pertaining to your vaccination.

What happens if I cannot get my first dose before I move in? Those who are unable to get vaccinated before moving in will have two weeks following their move-in date to receive their first dose, with Michener helping to facilitate access to vaccines, subject to supply. Those who are not fully vaccinated may be subject to additional public health restrictions.

What happens if students do not have at least, one dose within 14 days of their move in date? Students who have not been granted an exemption will not be permitted to continue living in residence.

Can I get an exemption? Any student who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons or on grounds protected under the Ontario Human Rights Code can request an exemption.  Michener will send information by email about how to request an exemption for students receiving an offer of residence.

Will additional measures be in place? Michener will continue to follow existing health and safety measures as set by public health for congregate settings – such as mask-wearing, capacity limits in common spaces and regular self-assessment for COVID-19 symptoms. Michener will also continue to monitor and review for any changes to public health guidelines

Are vaccines mandatory for all students? No. Michener has in place measures to support a safe return to campus and strongly encourages all members of our community to get fully vaccinated as soon as possible in accordance with public health guidelines.  Living in residence and sharing facilities with many other students creates a unique set of conditions where vaccinations are required.

Who do I contact if I have a question? Please contact residence@michener.ca
