Usually students who are offered a space on the waiting list are newly admitted students who do not have the University of Toronto Residence Guarantee for First-Year Applicants or are upper-year students who have not been offered a space in the first round of residence admissions, due to space restrictions in our residences, or are applicants who are applying after the application deadline. If you are offered a place on the waiting list, no deposit will be required until the time at which you are offered a residence space. If you are offered a residence space from the waiting list, you will be required to pay a deposit of up to $1,600 ($600 if before July 15th, $1,600 if after July 15th) by the deadline set by the Office of the Dean of Students in order to confirm your space in residence. If you are offered a space and decline the offer, you will be removed from the waiting list. If you would like to remove yourself from the waiting list for any reason prior to receiving an offer of a space in residence, please email the Office of the Dean of Students at firstname.lastname@example.org to notify them of your intention.
NEWLY ADMITTED STUDENTS – Sunday, September 6, 2020
RETURNING STUDENTS – Monday, September 7, 2020
Please note that early move-ins are not permitted. If you cannot move into residence on your designated move-in date above, you MUST make arrangements with the Office of the Dean of Students to defer your move-in date so that we still know you are coming to live at the College. Failure to move into residence on your designated move-in date, without a prior arrangement with the Office of the Dean of Students, will result in forfeiture of your residence room and forfeiture of both Deposit #1 and Deposit #2.
The Trinity College residences are open from the time of your designated move-in listed above until 12:00 p.m. on December 23, 2020. Students are required to vacate their residence room within 48 hours of their last exam in December, or by 12:00 p.m. on December 23, 2020, whichever comes first.
Residents are only permitted to remain in residence over the winter break period (i.e., between academic terms) if exceptional circumstances are demonstrated. This will require meeting with a staff member from the Office of the Dean of Students and their subsequent approval. There is a charge for each night spent in residence over the winter break, regardless of the length of stay. Students are charged a rate of $100 for each night up to a maximum of $300.
Meal service for the fall term will end with dinner, the evening of Tuesday, December 22, 2020 and will begin for the winter term with dinner, the evening of Sunday, January 3, 2021. Please note that there is no meal service or housekeeping service during the winter break.
NOTE: Following winter break, residences will re-open on Sunday, January 3, 2021.
Meal plan selection opens in early July, and can be accessed through your residence application. Meal plan selection is due on July 30, 2020, along with your Deposit #2 of $1,000.00. If you would like to change your meal plan selection, you can do so between September 10 and September 25, 2020. To change your meal plan during this time, log into The Hub and make changes to your meal plan under the “Change My Meal Plan” link. Please keep in mind that this option is only available up until September 25, 2020, at which point you can no longer make changes to your meal plan. Please also be reminded that occupation in residence at Trinity College comes with a meal plan, and unfortunately students are not able to opt out of a meal plan.
Please use your University of Toronto fees invoice to pay your Trinity residence fees at any major Canadian financial institution. See http://www.fees.utoronto.ca/news/fee_payment.htm for payment details. Allow 10 days for processing. Note special instructions for payments from outside Canada.
Note: U of T does NOT send paper invoices. You MUST monitor your ACORN account balance ONLINE (www.acorn.utoronto.ca). Regular reminders are sent to your UTOR e-mail.
Please note that your residence deposits are paid through your application on StarRez, and all subsequent payments are made through ACORN.
INTEREST IS CHARGED ON ALL OUTSTANDING ACCOUNTS, EVEN IF A PAYMENT PLAN HAS BEEN AUTHORIZED. Interest is calculated at 1.5% per month compounded monthly (19.56% per year) and first charged on October 15, 2020. To avoid interest charges, payments must be made by the end of the previous month.
Residence contracts are for the full academic year, i.e. both fall and winter terms.
Please see the Residence Agreement for more information about early withdrawals from residence.
Your full set of keys must be handed in when you leave residence. Failure to do so will result in a $250 charge to your U of T fees (ACORN) account.
