THE RESIDENCE ADVANTAGE
Residence life at The Michener Institute is fun, safe and convenient. There are many benefits to choosing residence accommodation at Schatz Hall. You immediately have a network of classmates with whom to work on assignments or study; you are in the same building as your classes, library and computer labs and you are within walking distance to the downtown amenities. Furthermore, you are not locked into a 12-month lease which is customary for most rental apartments and houses in the city.
At Michener our residence population tends to be a mature group of students (more closely related to grad housing) that values both a quality residence experience and education. Schatz Hall is organized to help you achieve your education in a friendly, supportive and inclusive environment. We believe that residence is much more than simply a place to live: it’s also an opportunity to experience a diverse community with people from every region of the globe.
This can help you prepare for success in our increasingly interconnected world.
Residence life provides a terrific opportunity to meet friends and study-mates. We hire Residence Dons (upper year Michener students) to live on each floor and assist with all aspects of residence life such a providing personal and/or academic support, organizing floor activities and working with the Student Success Network to make your time with us the best experience possible!
Residence fees for the entire academic year are payable in advance (fees for 2019/2020- $850.00 to $900.00 per month, 2020/2021 fees are not yet set). However, payment can also be made in two installments subject to a $25 deferred payment fee. Payment in full or for the first installment is due by August 15th, and the second installment due by February 1st.
ASSIGNMENT OF ROOMS
Priority is based upon meeting the residence application deadline (July 1st) and distance from The Michener Institute (greater than 100km). A lottery system will be
used if there are more qualified applicants than spaces available.
CHANGE OF MIND? WANT TO CANCEL?
Written (or email) notification of cancellation is required one month earlier, failure to do so will result in being charged the first month’s rent.
A withdrawal before the expiration of the Residence Agreement (provided to you with your offer of a residence room) requires written notification. You will be
responsible for all fees for the duration of your Residence Agreement unless we are able to fill your spot from the residence waitlist.
