Packages from FedEx, Purolator, DHL, Intelcom, UPS, and other mail carriers will come to the office. If you have a package in the office, we will email you. Packages shipped through Canada Post will go the parcel lockers in the lobby.
All of our leases are 3-year leases with the ability to opt-out every 12 months. You can end the lease in any year as long as you give notice. Below is a list of start/end dates and early termination deadlines:

I don’t need my room during the summer. Do you offer 8-month leases?
We do not offer 8-month leases. All our leases run for 12 months at a time. You are welcome to sublet your room or find a lease takeover for the months you will not be in the unit.
Why can’t I move in on the first of the month? Why do I have to wait until the third?
Especially in September, we’re turning over a high volume of beds in a short while. We do our best to get everyone into their new spaces as quickly as possible, but ask for your patience so that we can ensure the space you move into meets your expectations.
Early move-ins are completely dependent on the following:
- The previous resident moving out on time
- The condition they leave your unit in
- How quickly we’re able to get your space ready
We will do our best to accommodate early move-ins, but cannot guarantee them. Please email email@example.com to discuss the possibility of an early move-in.
