Residence fees are payable in two installments.

-- A $25 damage fee is added to the first installment and credited to a residence repair account. Damages not attributable to individuals are charged to this account. Any balance remaining at year-end is made available to the student body for residence improvement projects.

-- RESIDENCE DEPOSITS ($600) are non-refundable and applied against the first installment. The first installment below is net of the deposit.

 

  1st installment 2nd installment
OPTION Due August 21, 2012 Due January 11, 2013
A (400 meals/year) $6,000 + $25 - $600 = $5,425 $6,000
B (310 meals/year) $5,800 + $25 - $600 = $5,225 $5,800

 

LEAVING RESIDENCE

Please see the Dean of Students if you have to leave residence FOR ANY REASON before the end of the academic year.  If you leave, your residence fees will be pro-rated to the date you hand in your keys to the Porter's Lodge, and you will be charged a departure fee of $1,500.00. You will receive a credit on your meal plan equal to the lesser of unused meals and the pro-rated amount of the meal plan.
Note: There is no pro-rating for departures after February 1.

KEYS: Your full set of keys must be handed in when you leave residence. Failure to do so will result in a $40 charge to your U of T fees (ROSI) account.

DOUBLE ROOMS: Students who share a double room for an entire term (fall or winter) are reimbursed $250 at the end of the term. The rebate is applied to your ROSI account.

DEPOSITS FOR 2013-14:  Residence deposits ($600) for returning students are due in February/March 2013. You will receive a re-application form in early 2013.

NON-TRINITY STUDENTS: If you are not academically registered at Trinity College, you must pay Trinity Student Society Fees ($88.80) and half the College Fee ($288.00/2 = $144.00) in addition to residence fees. (Trinity students are charged these fees with tuition.)
