This section of the website covers all Residence legalities, standards, and policies. By signing the Residence Contract and living in Lakehead Residence, you agree to abide by all of the information detailed in this section.
Please review each section summary below carefully and click on the corresponding heading or left hand menu item for details.
|Contract Agreement Sample|
Each student will complete a Residence Housing Contract prior to moving into Residence. This outlines the conditions regarding living in Residence at Lakehead University.
Room Cancellations Prior to Residence Check-In
If you have completed your residence contract and wish to cancel your room reservation before moving into Residence, please note the following procedures.
All room cancellations MUST be directed to the Residence Accounts/Admissions Office. Email cancellations will only be accepted from Lakehead University email accounts. Telephone cancellations will NOT be accepted.
A $500.00 Residence cancellation penalty applies.
Living with a roommate or housemates may be challenging. A key to living with others is compromise and acceptance. If, for some extreme reason room or building changes are necessary, the student(s) involved should contact their Resident Assistant. Students will be referred to the Manager Residence Life and Admissions who must approve the room change. Room and building changes will be assessed a $50.00 administrative fee per student.
Room and building changes will not occur until the first business day in October.
Residence reserves the right to change room or building assignments at any time during the year.
|Insurance, Liability and Privacy Policies|
Please Note: The policies listed here are IN ADDITION TO ALL Lakehead University policies
Insurance and Liability
Lakehead University, including its directors, officers, employees, agents, volunteers, and contractors, assumes no liability for loss, theft, or damage to items of personal property, no matter how such loss, theft, or damage are caused and no matter where they may occur, including storage facilities.
The University strongly recommends that you obtain insurance against such eventualities. We do not purchase such protection for your property. Coverage can often be obtained through a rider on your family's tenant or homeowner insurance policy, which should include liability coverage for injury or damage.
Special Consideration Form
In the event that a student requires accommodation based on any disability, medical condition, height, dietary need, and/or requirements related to lifestyle, culture, gender or religious needs students may email the Residence Admissions Office at firstname.lastname@example.org with their request.
Students who have an Emotional Support/Service Animal must complete and submit the form below to the Student Accessibility Services (SAS) Office.
