Returning Residents: (for current Residents who wish to return in the Fall 2013)
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR 2013-14:
Humber RezNet is currently under review and may not be available for the Fall 2013. A third party vendor will be on site at move-in. Should basic Humber RezNet be available it would be at no cost to the student. Basic internet should be interpreted as a shared resource with weekly usage capped on external sites. The Resident acknowledges and agrees that Humber shall not be responsible for any loss, cost or liability resulting from any interruption in delivery of telecommunication services to the Resident.
Question: Why is this process in place?
Answer: Rooms allocated to returning residents have been capped, therefore we needed to implement a process that assigns rooms to students who have the greatest need (distance from home) and who want to be mentors, leaders and role models for incoming students (GPA, involvement, experience).
Question: Why has the amount of returning students to Residence been capped?
Answer: As first year students have the greatest need for housing, due to transition issues, knowledge of campus, etc., we need to ensure we can accommodate as many as possible. We believe that returning residents are valuable assets to the residence community and have set the cap at the same number we have seen living in residence in the past.
Question: How am I scored exactly?
Answer: We will give a number score for objective variables: distance from home, GPA, number of years in Residence. However, we also take into consideration your conduct history in residence, your involvement in the Residence community as a volunteer or leader, and your willingness to participate in volunteering for move-in and/or as a Residence Orientation Leader for the upcoming year.
Question: When do I have to pay the $500 deposit?
Answer: Deadline is April 1st or your offer is rescinded.
Question: What responsibilities will I have in welcome week and move-in?
Answer: We want returning students to play a large role in the development of their community and that starts at Move-in. We will be asking residents to take a leadership role during welcome week and move-in. This is your chance to shape your Residence – plus you receive leadership training and recognition – a great resume builder. If you don’t want to wait to be asked to help, visit your RLC to get involved (your RA knows how to find them). Your ability to be involved in Orientation and Move-in will be a factor in our decision for your acceptance.
Question: How will I be notified?
Answer: We will be sending you a decision letter starting March 18, 2013. If you are accepted you have until April 1 to pay your $500 deposit. After this time your space is automatically cancelled if you haven't paid your deposit.
