The flat rate per night is $40.00. This rate includes accommodation, linens and ResNet WiFi access. HST is included in the rate. Your accommodation can be paid in the same way as your other student fees, charges will be posted to your student account following your stay.

Can I use commuter residence to hang out with friends?
Commuter residence is intended for students to stay on campus to support academic success and safety - such as staying late night to access the library, labs, or to work on group projects. Commuter residence students cannot sign in guests. A complete guide to Commuter Residence Community Standards can be found on the menu to the right, or here.
