We are collaborating with Facilities Management to promote a more sustainable move out this year! Make use of the following resources to help do your part in our sustainable move out!
Residence Move Out Bins:
These additional bins will be dispersed throughout residence between April 8 – 25 to accommodate an influx in waste and recycling during this time. Please dispose of items in their appropriate bin (damaged furniture, flattened cardboard, electronics and small appliances)
UVic Free E-Recycle days:
On April 17th and 19th, from 11am to 3pm there will be bins beside the SUB to accept all your unwanted electronic items and small appliances for recycling. These e-recycle bins will accept a wide range of electronics. For more information on what can and can’t be accepted, please go to www.encorp.ca/electronics.
Clothesline drop box:
These red boxes serviced by the Canadian Diabetes Association can take resalable and reusable clothing, linens, blankets, bedding, shoes, hats, handbags and towels. Please do not include any garbage, furniture or household items.
Stuff Swap – April 10:
The student group Common Energy will be hosting a ‘Stuff Swap’ in the SUB Michele Pujol Room on April 10th from 10 am to 2 pm. An opportunity to pass along any unwanted useable stuff! Any unwanted useable items will be donated to charity at the end of event.
For further information, contact the Waste Reduction Unit at 250.853.3160 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Living with a Roommate
Residents in traditional-style double rooms can use our Roommate Agreement to help you facilitate a conversation about living styles with your roommate.
Cluster residents can check out our Roommates 101 Guide to help you get your roommate relationship off to a good start!
If you find yourself having difficulty with your roommate(s), the first thing we recommend doing is to have an open conversation with them about the things that might be bothering you. If you find that you continue to experience difficulty with your roommate(s), please contact your Community Leader.
Any maintenance issues in your unit or your building needing repair should be reported to the Residence Services Office as soon as possible. A 24-hour repair reporting line is available at 250.721.8650 or you can send an email to email@example.com.
Please note these services are managed during regular office hours (Mon-Fri 8:30am-4:30pm). After hours and weekend requests will be processed on the next business day.
If it is an emergency, please contact Campus Security (250.721.7599) or Residence Services Front Desk (250.721.8395).
We have a close relationship with Counselling Services and encourage students to take part in the wide range of groups and workshops they offer on campus. From workshops on Learning Skills to Relaxation, or Gaining Social Confidence to Career Exploration, Counselling Services offers opportunities for students to gain valuable life skills and meet other students!
Counselling Services also runs the Peer Helping Program, which is dedicated to providing students with a private, comfortable, and safe space in which can have someone to talk to.
Finally, Counselling Services does offer short-term individual appointments and consultations for students who find that problems are interfering with their academics or general well-being.

Safety & Security
Your safety and security is very important to us. As a result, there are several resources available to you in residence and on campus.
Lock your windows and doors. We can't stress enough the importance of making this a habit whenever you leave your unit - regardless of whether it is for just a few minutes or over several days. It takes less than a minute for valuables to be stolen so make sure that you are always double-checking that windows and doors are secure.
Each neighbourhood has a CL Help Phone that is in service every night from 7pm-8am during the academic year (September-April).

What to Bring to Residence
All bedrooms in the dormitories and Cluster units have twin extra long beds with mattress sizes of 78"x39"x8". A mattress cover is provided for each bed but students need to bring their own sheets, pillows, and pillow slips. All bedrooms include a desk with a reading lamp, a chair, and a closet/armoire with drawers.
For more ideas of what to bring to residence, check out this guide.
You are free to personalize your room but cannot add anything that will require any repair to the room when removed. You may not paint or install any fixture in your room and nails in the walls are not acceptable. Please use the bulletin boards provided and limit fasteners to pushpins or thumbtacks.
