GENERAL INFORMATION

BURTON'S POND APARTMENTS

In addition to Paton College, Memorial operates an apartment complex at Burton's Pond on the University campus. There are four apartment buildings for single students: Guy, Gilbert, Cartier and Cabot Courts. Fifteen two-bedroom family units are contained in Baltimore Court, and there is a service building - Corte Real Court containing a computer room, a laundry centre, and students' mail boxes which are accessible to residents 24 hours a day. The housing office for Burton's Pond Apartments is located in Room 309, Hatcher House. As spaces are limited, demand is high, and spaces are allotted on a first come first served basis, students are encouraged to apply early. Each apartment unit in the four "single students" buildings is occupied by four students, each of whom has a private bedroom and shares the kitchen, living room and bathroom. Burton's Pond accommodates both graduate and undergraduate students. Each student is required to sign an occupancy agreement for the partial occupancy of an apartment.

Residence in the apartments is limited to students of 19 years of age or over who have a minimum of thirty university course credit hours. Students entering Memorial for the first time or who have less than 30 credit hours and wish to stay in Burton's Pond when they meet the requirements, should not delay in submitting an application. Thirty credit hours are not needed to apply. You must have thirty credit hours on the "First day of occupancy". The four residences can provide accommodation for 512 students. Once this accommodation has been assigned, applicants to a maximum of 100 males and 100 females who cannot be offered accommodation at the time will be placed on a waiting list.

Baltimore Court has 15 units, and the student is required to sign an occupancy agreement. Each apartment contains a living room, a kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom. The second bedroom is designed for one child. All apartments in Baltimore are assigned on a priority basis. Check with office for details. An application fee of $20.00 for three consecutive semesters must be submitted.

The application fee is non-refundable and non-creditable in all instances.

Except for the restriction on first-year students and waiting list maximums, the same basic procedures apply for Assignment to Residence, Residence Terms and Offers of Accommodations - New Applicants.
