When may I move in?

Our main move-in weekend is September 4-5, 2021. All incoming residents have received detailed emails about the move-in process. If you have not received the emails, please let us know. 

2021 Covid Protocols

  • Non-medical masks or face coverings are mandatory 
  • You may only bring 2 guests to help you move 
  • There will be no student leaders available to help you move 
  • There will be carts available for sign-out at each building check-in site 


On move-in day, unloading zones will be set up along the streets in front of the three buildings. Please respect others’ needs and move your car as soon as your belongings are unloaded. There is some metered parking in the area, and you will be given a map when you arrive with University lots highlighted. Parking in downtown Toronto is always a challenge, but we will do our best to direct you to possible locations.  

What do I need to bring?
