Your Lease

Resources > Moving In & Your Lease

Your lease is the legal contract between you (as resident) and the University (your landlord). As such, it gives both you and the University certain rights and certain obligations. The lease outlines your rights to basic services (e.g. heat, water, and electricity) and your responsibility abide by the policies, to maintain standards of cleanliness, follow certain guidelines, and inform the Residence Office of necessary repairs. 

If you have any questions regarding your lease, please contact the Charles Street Residence Office.

Signing Your Lease

All residents must accept their online lease and sign a hard copy of the lease, as well as N11 form and a Notice to Terminate Tenancy form, before moving into their apartment: both the resident and resident’s partner must be present to sign the lease.

A student’s eligibility documentation, i.e., student status, financial status, their marriage or common-law status, their partner/spouse’s visa status, and/or child verification, must be approved prior to signing the lease.

Residents must submit their first and last month’s rent payment by certified cheque or money order before the apartment is confirmed. This is due when you accept the apartment offer.
