SMC Resident Fees

How it works

SMC residents pay for their room and mealplan combined (we do not divide the two). All residents must sign up for the entire academic session (September-April), it is not possible to live at SMC for one semester only.

Please note that since you commit to living at SMC for the entire academic session, early withdrawal comes with serious financial implications. We recommend that students are positive that they want to live in residence before accepting their offer to avoid major financial loss. See more under our “withdrawals”section.

Incidental Fees

In addition to basic charges for room and board, residents also pay various incidental fees:

  • All residents pay $22 for the St Michael's College Residence Council (SMRC), which organizes various sporting and social events within the residence.

Students who are not registered academically at St Michael’s (i.e. students in professional faculties, non-SMC graduate students, students from other colleges, etc.) also pay the following, in addition to the SMRC fee:

  • SMCSU: St Michael’s Student's Union fee: $12
  • The Mike: Student newspaper fee: $3
  • College Fee: A fee for improvements to the College facilities: $54

Residents who are registered academically at St Michael's College already pay these fees with their tuition.
