Non-payment of fees on due dates may result in termination of residence and food service privileges.

Early Move Outs

You must complete a Notice to Vacate form to Residence Services at least 30 days prior to moving out. Please note: there is a charge for ending your contract early. Each student's refund is unique, depending on fees still owing and payments made on the student's account.

Remember to provide a forwarding address so your refund cheque may be mailed to you.

Three-Week Term

Returning students who are not on campus during the Fall or January three week term may request a pro-rateable meal plan. The Pro-rateable meal plan is the same meal plan applicable to the 4 month contracts. It costs a little bit more but the benefit of this meal plan is that you are allowed to pro-rate it both the September and the January 3 week term. Contact us at augres@ualberta.ca if you wish to sign up for the pro-ratable meal plan.

  • The deadline to inform us of your pro-ration/arrival date is August 1st (December 1st for January). Contact us at augres@ualberta.ca to advise us of your arrival date.
  • Pro-rations are only available up to the first day of the 11 week term. All meal plans will begin billing by that date, or earlier if you arrive earlier.
  • Once you begin taking meals in the dining hall, your pro-ration will end.
  • Pro-rations are not available for your residence room. We are holding your room during that period and you are welcome to drop off belongings during the three week period Remember if you start taking meals then your billing for the meal plan will begin.
