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 are no refunds for departures after January 31.

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 2014-15:  Residence deposits ($600) for returning students are due in February/March 2014. You will receive a re-application form in early 2014.

NON-TRINITY STUDENTS: If you are not academically registered at Trinity College, you must pay Trinity Student Society Fees ($88.56) and half the College Fee ($294.00/2 = $147.00) in addition to residence fees. (Trinity students are charged these fees with tuition.)

       *** Check your ROSI account to make sure you have been charged for the correct plan ***

You may change your meal plan and have your residence fee adjusted up to Friday, September 20, 2013.  This can be done in person at the Bursar's Office or by e-mail at fees@trinity.utoronto.ca.
