Residence will open for January (Winter ONLY) arrivals on January 4, 2021.

 

Residents joining residence for the Winter (January - April 2021) semester are able to move in at any time, 24 hours / day, after January  4, 2021 at 9:00am. We are NOT currently assigning specific time slots for individuals to move into residence at this time. (We do ask that any residents unable to check-in by WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 13, 2021 at 5:00pm contact the Housing & Residence Office by email (residence.housing@smu.ca) to clarify your arrival date so you will not be declared a “no-show”.)
