Parents and Guardians Tips

  • Ensure you go over the application process together with your son/daughter. This will make you both be aware of the amount that will be charged on your credit card, all fees, the payment schedule deadlines and the rules and regulations.

  • We treat all students as an adult. All notices and invoices are delivered to the student. Any refund checks will be made out to the student.

  • We encourage all parents / guardians to take a tour of our facilities, view a room and ask any questions before they move in. This will give you and your son / daughter a better understanding of what to bring, the lifestyle we provide and to meet our staff in person. Please call ahead and set up a tour.

  • When moving in, please take the time to help them move into their new community. Help them set up their room and get settled in on the first weekend. We are sorry but there are no rooms for parents to stay. A list of accommodation options are available upon request.

  • When a student starts university for the first time, they will be extremely busy setting up class, making study schedules, getting to know their quad-mates and meeting new friends. This all will take up a great deal of their time. Please keep in mind you may not always be able to get in touch with them when you call. This is expected do to all the changes they will experience. If you have not heard from them for a extended period of time, please fell free to contact us and we will check in on them.

  • You may hear a lot about your son /daughter's quad-mates. This is not uncommon for students to go through an adjustment period when living with someone new. If your son/daughter is having issues with their quad-mates, we recommend them to talk with their quad-mates first. If the issue is not settled, we then ask the student to direct the issue to their Resident Advisor. It is important to develop a positive relationship by communicating with their quad-mates.

  • Most students living in residence will experience being away from home for the first time. If your son/daughter has concerns or is experiencing any challenges, please encourage them to speak to our staff. We are here to help any student to move forward in a positive direction.

  • Time to time, send your son/daughter a care package, letter or card whenever you have an opportunity. All the little things make a big difference when they are dealing with stress, exams or being away from home for the first time.
