  • August 1, 2019 – Deposit #2 of $1,000 is due. This deposit applies to all incoming residents, even those on OSAP or financial assistance. Failure to pay the second deposit by the due date will result in the cancellation of your room reservation, and your space will be offered to the next person on our wait list.

The first and second installments of residence fees will be loaded onto your ACORN/ROSI account prior to Fall Term and can be paid in full. Check here for more information: http://www.fees.utoronto.ca/news/fee_payment.htm

Students are responsible for monitoring their own ACORN/ROSI account balance; regular reminders are sent to your UTOR email.

Late Payments

A service charge of 1.5% compounded monthly (19.56% per annum) will be levied by UofT on the 15th of every month to the unpaid balance of the first installment commencing October 15th, 2019 and to the unpaid balance of the second installment commencing December 15th, 2019 until the entire residence account is paid in full.

Incidental Fees

Students who live in SMC Residence but are affiliated with an academic division other than SMC (i.e. Professional Faculties, Graduate Students, students from other Colleges, etc.) will be subject to the incidental fees that SMC students pay with their tuition. These fees are currently being reviewed and amounts are TBD.

 

Fee Deferrals

Student relying on OSAP or another government assistance program who wish to pay their second installment on January 30, 2020 (rather than November 30, 2019) must defer their fees on ACORN/ROSI by following the instructions here:

http://www.artsci.utoronto.ca/current/forms-services/fee-deferral

If you have successfully deferred your tuition fees, you have also deferred your residence fees. There is no separate deferral process for residence fees.

 

Withdrawal Policy

When you accept an offer of admission to residence you are agreeing to stay for the full 8-month term. Early withdrawal from residence comes with serious financial implications, so we recommend students accept their offer only if they are sure they want to live in residence.
