What if I miss the check-in deadline?
If you don't move in by the end of the first day of the SFU term, we will assume you are not arriving and your room will be offered to the next person on the wait list. Your room will be cancelled and all cancellation fees will apply. If you wish to arrive after move in day, please email email@example.com to arrange your late arrival.
Read your residence contract and handbook
You’ve signed your contract, but have you read it? What about your Residence and Housing handbook? It contains important information including: community standards, regulations and Meal Memberships. Includes important COVID-19 addendums.

Update your mailing list
