Submitting Your Withdrawal

  • Go to my.brocku.ca. (It is essential that your browser is set to enable pop-ups/cookies).
  • Login using your Brock username and password.
  • Click the “Applicant and Student Self Serve” tab.
  • Click “Apply for Residence” at the bottom right of the page.

Appeal Process

Students who move out of residence early may lodge an appeal requesting an increased refund if they believe there are extenuating circumstances. An example would be a student who is forced to withdraw from University because of sudden illness. An email officially launching the appeal should be sent to the Manager of Residence Admissions and Administration at res@brocku.ca. Supporting documentation should be provided to support the appeal. This can be delivered:

  • attached to your email;
  • faxed to 905-688-0797;
  • brought to room R224 in DeCew Residence;
  • marked confidential and mailed to:

Manager Residence Admissions and Administration
Department of Residences
Brock University
1812 Sir Isaac Brock Way
St. Catharines, ON
L2S 3A1

A successful appeal will result in the student being charged the per diem rate for the nights they were assigned to a residence room. They will forfeit their $600-deposit, as will anyone who withdraws more than 31 days after their room assignment is sent out.

Troubleshooting tips

Students must login using their campus ID, which is the six-digit letter and number combination (e.g. ab14cd)

Usually the residence channel is on the right side. It has a blue bar with Residence in white at the top and the “Apply to Residence” icon below. If you can’t see it on the right side, scroll down or check on the left side of the page. It’s possible the icon has been minimized so you will only see the blue bar with Residence and no picture. Click on the white arrow in the blue bar to open up the channel and see the icon. If you still can’t see the channel, go to the top right side of the page and click Add More on the menu bar. You will see any inactive channels that can be added to the page.
