Information For New Residents

As a new resident you are going to quickly learn that living on the campus is very different than living at home, or living next to the campus. So here is some information that will help you transition to life in your family home, to life in your home-away-from-home.

The Residence Life Office

First, more than anything else, we strongly encourage you to speak to your Residence Life staff, or the staff of Housing, Food and Conference Service, whenever you have questions. Learning to ask questions is a really important part of being a student.

Your Email

Once you are accepted to Memorial University, you will be given a email address. We will be sending important information to your address. So you should get into the habit of checking it regularly.

Your Accommodations Agreement

In the middle of the summer, we will be sending you instructions on how to accept your Accommodations Agreement (i.e. your lease). You will be required to accept this agreement before you can check in to residence in September. You should read it before you accept it.

The Accommodations Office

The Accommodations Office manages applications, room assignments, cancellations, financial charges, mail delivery, etc. You should contact, if you have questions about your accommodations or room assignment.

Your Stuff

We provide all the furniture you need, but you will want to bring some stuff with you. Here’s a list of what you will want to bring to residence with you.

Parking On Campus

If you are bringing a car, and want to park on campus, you will need to get a parking Permit from Campus Enforcement and Patrol. You will need to get a letter from our general office (1031 Coughlan) to confirm that you are living in residence. You can get that letter from Tuesday, September 3, 2013 until Friday, September 6, 2013. You will need to bring the car's registration, proof of insurance, and your Campus Card (i.e. student ID).

Checking In

Check-In day for all new residents is Sunday, August 31, 2014, starting at 9:00am. Mark it in your calendar, and we will meet you at the door!
