Residence Halls

Out of respect for the privacy of others, students are not permitted to enter the residence hall of the opposite sex except during open lounge and open residence hours. Entering the residence halls of the opposite sex is strictly forbidden, with the exception of planned Open Residence. Both the student hosting and the student visiting outside of Open Residence hours will be held accountable.

Campus Apartments

Providence tenants have the right to host guests in their homes for up to seven days. If guests will be staying longer than seven days, however, the tenant must get permission from the Executive Assistant for Student Life prior to the arrival of their guests. If guests cause damage to any Providence property or cause any kind of disturbance, the tenants hosting them will be held responsible.

During the COVID-19 Pandemic, Providence tenants must follow the Public Health provincial guidelines for public and private gatherings.
