SMC Residence

Admitted Residents: Welcome!

All Freshmen Residents are encouraged to arrive on Move-In Day.

Your Arrival

A check-in desk will be set up in Charbonnel Lounge in Elmsley Hall, 81 St. Mary Street. The desk is open from 9am until 5pm on Move in Day. After that you can check in anytime at the 24-hour Porter's desk which is also located in Elmsley Hall. You must check-in within one week of move-in day or your residence will be automatically cancelled (unless you have made alternative arrangements with the residence office ahead of time).

Moving Into Your Room

Upon arrival you will receive your room keys and be directed to your new room. Since dollies and wagons are in high demand on move-in day, we recommend that you bring your own if possible.

Opening Day Activities

Around 6pm your Don will be hosting a pizza dinner to officially welcome you to St Mike's and provide you with an opportunity to meet your new housemates. Following dinner there will be a residence mixer in "the quad" with a DJ and some other activities planned to welcome you to residence and help you meet the other new members of the residence community.

Policy on Early Arrivals

We regret that we are unable to accommodate early arrivals due to the room preparation that occurs during the last weeks of summer. Please make your travel arrangements with this in mind. If you require accommodation before Labour Day you are advised to make arrangements with a hotel in the greater Toronto area.

Congratulations on your decision to live at St Mike's! Our goal is to help you balance your academic life with the excitement that comes from living and learning with hundreds of other students from around the world. Our residence staff are committed to ensuring that your time at St Mike’s will be memorable.
