Conditions for Termination of the Residence Contract
The University may terminate a resident's agreement for:

In cases where the termination of the Residence agreement occurs for reasons stated above, written notice of termination will be provided to the resident. In most cases the resident whose agreement is terminated may not re-enter any Residence building. If a person does enter Residence unlawfully, he/she may be charged with trespassing under the Trespass to Property Act.
Furthermore, in cases where termination of the Residence agreement occurs for reasons stated above, the student evicted will be assessed a penalty of $1,000.00 or half of the term remaining, whichever is greater, as an eviction penalty.
Income Tax Information
For income tax purposes, students in Residence do not pay taxes on their Residence fees as the University Residences are on tax-exempt land. On Line 6114 (Student Residences) on your income tax form, you can claim $25 as your occupancy cost for the part of the year you lived in Residence. You do not need to have proof of Residence or tax receipts for residence fee payment.
The Department of Residence does not provide receipts. If you are filing either a paper or an electronic income tax return, you do not need to include receipts with your return.
