Residence Guest Registration

To keep our community safe, Student Housing Services is restricting guest access to our residences at this time. A guest is defined as any individual who does not reside in the building they are currently in. 

Student Housing Services is now in Stage 1 of the Guest Policy.  Students will be unable to register guests at this time.


Once applicable, Stage 2 restrictions will include:

  • You may have 1 guest per resident
  • Guests must live on-campus in residence
  • Guests are permitted for up to 3 nights
  • Pre-registration is required on the Housing Portal before arrival
  • Off-campus external guests are not permitted at this time

More details can be found under the Residence Community Living Standards.
