As you know, the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve rapidly. Humber has closed its campuses and Faculties/programs are arranging for course completion to occur remotely/online. Students will not need to return to campus for the remainder of the Winter 2020 semester.
This means that there is no longer an academic need for students to remain in residence. As a result, we now expect residents to permanently move out of residence by Tuesday, March 24, 2020, at 12 p.m.
We understand that some students have legitimate extenuating circumstances making it difficult for them to vacate immediately. Residents with no access to other accommodation options must complete the Residence Extension Request form on the residence portal at https://myresidence.humber.ca/starrezportalx by 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, March 22, 2020.
Students who are approved for an extension should be aware that Humber may need to relocate residents to different rooms or different campuses. As we may be required to close the residences at both Lakeshore and North Campus prior to April 18, we recommend any student granted an extension to find an alternative housing arrangement as soon as possible.
As previously communicated, residents who move out permanently by 12 p.m. on March 24, 2020 will receive a prorated refund of $827 for single rooms and $1,045 for suite rooms, as well as the unused balance of their meal plan. Please ensure that when you move out, you take all your belongings with you, as once you check out at the front desk, you will no longer have access to residence for the remainder of the academic year.
As a reminder, many residence services have already been reduced, and we expect to further reduce services after March 24. Take-out meals will be offered on a reduced schedule from the residence cafeteria. We are no longer permitting overnight guests and we are restricting daytime guest visits to those that are necessary.
We know that this isn’t the way that any of us expected the semester to end, and we appreciate your understanding and cooperation. Please direct any questions to email@example.com
