|What should I bring?|
|Settling into residence requires you bring things to make the room your own and to add to your personal comfort. Here are needed and optional items.
|What not to bring?|
|Will I share a bathroom?|
In Lloydminster, spinwheels have two levels with four bedrooms and a bathroom on each level. So 4 people share.
|Where will I eat?|
|While you can cook at residence in a communal cooking area, you might not always want to. If this is the case, you can drop in for a breakfast or lunch at the LC Cafe.
|Where will I park?|
|Good news – parking fees are included in your res fees. Passes are for scramble parking anywhere in the specific residence lots.
|Where do I get a residence application?|
|Once you are accepted in your program, we’ll send you a residence application.
Fill it out and send with $550--$50 non-refundable application fee and $500 security deposit. This deposit stays on your account until you leave.
Family housing applicants only pay the application fee until they are assigned a house. Their security deposit of one month's rent is due then.
If you change your mind about living in residence, as long as you give us two weeks-notice before you move in, your complete deposit is returned to you.
|Social, studious, alcohol-free, mature – what do those mean on the application form?|
|You can choose what type of dorm environment you'd like to live in.
On the application, you'll see alcohol free, social, and academic. Choose the right atmosphere for you.
The alcohol-free dorm doesn't permit alcohol anywhere inside the dorm. People may consume alcohol elsewhere and then return to the dorm
In Lloydminster, you also have the choice of same gender or co-ed spinwheel.
In Vermilion, we have a mature dorm option. The mature dorm is intended for anyone who wants a slightly quieter and more study-focused environment. Generally, students in the mature dorm are 21 years old or older.
|Where can I do laundry?|
|More good news. You don’t need quarters to do your laundry.
In the main Vermilion dorms, laundry facilities are in the basement. In the dorm townhouses, your washer and dryer are in the bathroom. In the Delta townhouse, laundry units are at the end of each building (yes, you do have to go outside).
In Lloydminster, washers and dryers located in the Prairies building.
|What’s an RA?|
|You can think of your residence assistant (RA) as your activity director, mentor, confidante, team member, shoulder to cry on, counsellor, and dorm authority all wrapped up into one. RAs are there to help you settle into residence, have fun, and meet new people while making sure rules are being followed.
|What does co-ed mean?|
|All of our Vermilion residence buildings are co-ed. Males and females live in the same building. In the dorms only the same gender share a bathroom. Townhouses may have different genders sharing a bathroom.
Co-ed means that males and females live in the same spinwheel. You can request a gender specific spinwheel if you'd prefer to live with people the same gender as you.
|What is the zero tolerance policy?|
|All residents are required to sign Lakeland College’s Zero Tolerance Policy. It outlines unacceptable behaviours and actions. Violations of the policy by any resident or his/her guest will result in eviction.
