Once you arrive at SJU, there will be Student Affairs Staff, and Upper Year Students waiting to direct your vehicle to your designated loading zone and parking area. Student Leaders will be available to help you carry your things to your room (though you are welcome to bring helping hands as well). A Don will be on your floor to greet you and check you into your room.
Families and caregivers should plan to attend a residence information session and send-off, and students should be prepared for an evening of fun and informative events!
The Meal plan will begin with dinner on Saturday, September 2, 2023.
Early move-ins are only accommodated in extenuating circumstances such as out of province travel, varsity athlete training, or student leader training. Due to building use and maintenance requirements, the earliest move-in St. Jerome’s can accommodate is August 30, 2023. No exceptions.
If you are arriving in advance of this date you will need to find alternative accommodations and St. Jerome’s will not be able to support this.
All early move-in requests must be submit using the ‘Early Move-In Request Form’ on eRez life. The deadline to request an early move-in for fall 2023 is August 8, 2023.
Locating St. Jerome’s:
290 Westmount Rd North,
Waterloo, ON, Canada
St. Jerome's Residence can be accessed only from a driveway off Westmount Rd. North (you can't access SJU from the University of Waterloo Ring Rd.). Free parking is available on site during the day.
Should you be arriving with a trailer, please make advanced arrangements with the Residence Team as our laneway and turnaround areas are very limited.
Unfortunately, it is a very busy day in the SJU kitchen, and we are not able to accommodate additional guests.
Note: programming for your student will start with dinner. Please help assure they are here in time for the start to Orientation Week activities.
At the end of each term, you have 24 hours following your final exam or take-home assignment to move-out. In the case that you do not have finals, you will have 24 hours following the last day of class.
If you are living at SJU while on a co-op work term you will be expected to move-out upon completing your co-op term or when residence closes, whichever comes first.
Students moving out of residence must take all belongings with them. This includes situations where a student will return to residence after a term away.
These are the following steps to move-out:
Inform residence don of the date you will be moving out (according to stipulations above)
Schedule a time for residence don to do to the room checkout form with you.
- You and the don will check room for any damage, missing items, etc.
Return fob to residence don upon check-out.
Note: the check-out process and returning your residence fob is mandatory. There will be a $50 charge if you do not complete the checkout process, and a $50 charge for any unreturned fob.
If you are living at SJU for two consecutive terms you will be able to leave your belongings at SJU.
If you are living at SJU, and will move away for one term before returning, SJU will NOT store your belongings.
While it may be 'goodbye' from living in residence, you are a part of the SJU community, and are always welcome to remain involved and engaged as an Off-Campus Housing student!
