Social Gatherings

Social Gatherings in Residence

Line break

You are encouraged to meet new people in residence and social gatherings are a great way for students to build community, meet new friends, and take a break from their studies. If you are going to have a social gathering, here are some things to consider to make sure that you are keeping yourself and others safe:

  • Make sure you know everyone attending, this is your living space!

  • Ensure all guests are aware of the residence Community Standards

  • If there’s going to be alcohol present for those that are of legal drinking age, have a sober spotter to ensure no one is becoming over intoxicated.

    • If alcohol is present, it must remain in living spaces – common areas are alcohol free.

  • If there’s going to be cannabis present for those that are of legal age to use, ensure that cannabis is consumed outdoors in the designated smoking areas

  • Although there are quiet hours, it is always consideration hours for noise

  • Talk to your neighbours and those around you ahead of time to let them know you’ll be having people over

  • Be aware of quiet hours:

    • Friday-Saturday; 1:00AM
