At Humber Residences, we address everything to the student, not the parent. It is the student's responsibility to contact their guardian if they require assistance. This is the first real step towards independent living and we believe students are able to handle that responsibility. Encourage your student to remember that they must act in accordance with our rules and regulations. Consequences for not doing so may be very serious and may include fines and potential eviction. Read the Residence Handbook for more information.
Read the website for information so you can help guide your student to the right area to get some assistance during their stay.
Encourage your student to complete their registration and make payments on time.
Take a campus and residence tour so you can have a better understanding of where your student will be living and learning in for the next couple of years. Link to the tours.
When packing, make sure you read the "what to bring and what to keep at home lists" in the Student Residence Handbook.Pack a move-in cart as it will make the move-in much smoother. Cloth covered furniture (potential bed bug issues), oversized items will not be permitted.
Attend the parent sessions on move-in day so you can ask any questions!
Help set up their computer and voice mail message.
After unpacking,don't stay too long - this allows students to get settled in more quickly.
Send email or care packages during the year.
Try not to worry - the majority of our students love living in residence and quickly find friends. They will also have support and people to assist them if they need it. Their success is important to us.
