Residence Application Procedures for Exchange Students
To accommodate the various student exchange programs in place at WLU, a limited number of residence beds are reserved for exchange students. It is expected that exchange students will be housed in the townhouses (St. Agatha and St. Jacobs) at Laurier Place Residence for the 2013-2014 academic school year.
St. Agatha and St. Jacobs are apartment-style residences. The residence fee for the 8-month academic school year in 2012-2013 is $5,720 plus a $24 student activity fee. For more information on Laurier Place, please visit Residence Buildings. (The residence fee is expected to increase for the 2013-2014 school year.)
Residence applications for Laurier International Exchange students are available by clicking on the link at the bottom of this page. Completed and signed applications may be submitted to the Residence Office by fax at 519-883-9060 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
All students who wish to live in residence must sign a Residence Hall Agreement as part of the terms and conditions of their residence application. By agreeing to the terms contained within the Residence Hall Agreement, students acknowledge that their occupancy period in residence is for the 8-month academic school year (September through April).
Exchange students who are successful in obtaining a space in residence must stay in residence for the entire period of time for which they have applied. This could be the Fall Term (September - December), the Winter Term (January - April) or both Fall and Winter Terms (September - April), as indicated on your residence application.
Students who choose to leave residence before the end of the agreed-to occupancy period, will be held responsible for the full fees for their assigned residence room for the entire occupancy period.
Exchange students who wish to apply to live in residence are strongly advised to consider the financial implications of this decision before signing the Residence Hall Agreement and committing to live in residence. In previous years, some exchange students have been able to arrange less costly private accommodations in the community, and prefer to live there.
