Withdrawing From Residence
Students who have decided to withdraw from residence must send an e-mail to res@brocku.ca giving their first and last name together with their Brock student number and the planned departure date. Please also read Vacating a Residence Room . If a student withdraws from residence in order to circumvent our disciplinary process that student may be referred to the University Disciplinary Board.

Appeal Process
Students who move out of residence early (by removing their belongings from their room, checking out at their Service Desk and handing in their key(s) and zippered mattress protector) may lodge an appeal, requesting an increased refund, if they believe there are extenuating circumstances. An example would be the student who is forced to withdraw from University because of sudden illness. An e-mail officially lodging the appeal should be sent to the Manager Residence Admissions and Administration (june.robertson@brocku.ca). Supporting documentation should be provided to support the appeal. This can be delivered in a number of ways:
—          attached to your e-mail
—          faxed to (905) 688-0797
—          brought to room R211 in DeCew Residence
—          marked “confidential” and mailed to

A successful appeal will result in the student being charged the per diem rate for the nights they were assigned to a residence room and they will forfeit their $600 deposit (as has anyone who has withdrawn from our process since July 27, 2013).
