Need a place to stay for move-in day weekend? Try the Super 8 at (705) 254-6441 and say you're family of a Sault College student to receive a discount!
Move-In Day is Sunday September 4th!
If you aren't able to move in on the designated move in day, let the residence office know. We'll have security working from 4pm Sunday until 8am Tuesday to ensure that late arrivals are accommodated, but it's helpful for us to know when to expect you.
Leave the family pets at home on Move-In Day.
If you're bringing a car with you and haven't already paid for parking, be sure to do so on Move-In Day. The first day of school is busy, but you want to avoid getting a parking ticket!
Things to Bring
The following is a list of some supplies students may need or want while living in Residence. Keep in mind that it may be more convenient to purchase some of these things from a store once you have arrived if you don’t want to pack them.
television (your room DOES have full cable, after all...just remember to bring a cable cord!)
What NOT to Bring
Bringing these items to residence will result in disciplinary sanctions. See the Ray Lawson Handbook for further restricted items.
Beer bottles, kegs or bubbas (This is a strict rule in residence designed for your safety. If you are of legal drinking age and drinking beer, buy it in cans please.)
Halogen lamps (Please do not bring halogen lamps because of the possibility of fire. We cannot risk the safety or our residents, so bring an alternate, safer light source.)
Large Stereos (Portable, bookshelf and mini- and micro-sound systems are appropriate for a residence room. Don’t bring anything bigger – you may enjoy those wall-shaking beats, but your neighbours who share your walls, ceilings and floors won’t.)
Wireless Routers (Internet routers are contraband items because they disrupt the wireless network preventing others from accessing it.)
Pets (Not even little ones. This excludes fish.)
Fire Hazards (Hotplates, sunlamps, fireworks, candles, incense, or firecrackers.)
Weapons (This includes large knives and martial arts weapons. It also includes decorative ones. Also, don’t bring any replica or toy weapons.)
PERSONAL PROPERTY AND INSURANCE
Insurance carried by the College does not cover your personal possessions. Sault College does not assume any liability for lost, stolen or damaged items of personal property, no matter how caused. It is your responsibility to arrange for insurance coverage for personal property brought into residence. If your parents live in Ontario, their property insurance might be extended to include your possessions, while you are living in residence.
All valuables should be kept under lock and key, and you are advised to keep your room locked at all times. A malfunction of the door lock does not change this responsibility and alternative secure storage may be required for valuable items. Theft of personal property should be reported to the Residence Office. Make a descriptive inventory of your possessions and mail it home.
If you park in the residence parking lot, please note that, again, the College does not assume any liability for lost, stolen or damaged items of personal property, no matter how caused.
Personal property remaining in a residence room at the end of the academic year or any personal property remaining in a storage locker after the last day of the Residence Agreement shall be deemed to have been abandoned and may be deposed of.
