 Important Information

Miss a Payment Deadline?

  • If you miss a payment deadline, you will be charged a $50 late fee.
  • Students are responsible for checking their Aurora Student account, email and mailboxes on a regular basis for residence fee balances.
  • Unpaid accounts will result in your University of Manitoba account being placed on HOLD, which prevents you from using most campus services, including libraries, and can result in eviction.
  • Due to FIPPA (privacy laws), the Residence Office CANNOT discuss a student's account with ANYONE other than the student. If a student wants the Student Residences Office to release information to a specified person, they must provide written permission to the Student Residences Office.

Residence Fees

  • The Board of Governors has approved the Room and Meal Plan rates (8 months) at their March meeting.
  • The rates are for the September to April regular academic year.
  • For students staying only one semester (Fall or Winter), rates are approximately half the amounts listed.

Council and Programming Fees

These additional fees are included in the Residence Rates:
- A Residence Council fee of $45 (University College Residence $60)
- A ResLife Programming Fee of $80

Staying in Residence over the December/January Holiday Break

  • Students wishing to remain in residence over the December/January holiday break will be required to declare their intent to stay during this period and there will be an additional extended stay fee of $105. This fee is over and above the residence room rate (see Section 1.3 of the Residence Contract - Residence Service Interruptions). During the holiday period, campus services (within and outside of residences) are limited, but basic levels of caretaking and 24-hour security will be provided for students who have declared their intent to stay.
  • An application process will be required and all residents will be emailed more information midway through the Fall term on how to apply. Students who do not apply and pay the fee will not be permitted to stay in residence as it is outside of the term contract dates (stated in Section 1.2 of the Residence Contract - Occupancy Term Dates). However, they may leave their belongings in their room. The University is closed from Friday, December 22, 2017 to Monday, January 1, 2018 inclusive.
