Academic Cluster Leader (ACL)

Academic Cluster Leaders are senior students enrolled in the same academic school. They are dedicated to providing a range of academically focused programs and activities, act as mentors and offer support to students living in their assigned academic cluster.

Senior Resident Assistants

Senior RA's have had a role within the Residence Life program for at least one year. They assist the RLC in areas such as programming, investigations of Residence Hall violations, on call and emergency situations, staff meetings and more. Senior RA's are assigned a focus area as well as a community of students where they act as the Resident Assistant. Each residence has 2 Senior RA's, one responsible for Community Standards and one responsible for Community Building. Senior Resident Assistants, Community Standards, have extra responsibilities in the areas of discipline, administrative duties and staff supervision.

We're Here to Help!

Residence Life Coordinator, North Residences R & T Ext. 72044 North Residences S Ext. 77301 Lakeshore Residence Ext. 73035

RLC's are responsible for the Residence Life Program. The primary role is to uphold high standards of group living by providing educational and social programming, counselling, and discipline. The RLC is also responsible for hiring, training and supervising of the Resident Assistants (RA's).

Resident Assistant Designate (RAD)

A Resident Assistant Designate is chosen for their ability to contribute to a positive Residence environment, and to be a leader in the community. RAD's go through the same rigorous training as RA's and, in the instance that a Resident Assistant position becomes available, the RAD is able to fill that role.

Resident Assistants (RA's)

RA's are students that are trained in a variety of areas including, but not limited to: program development, counselling, crisis management, and dealing with disciplinary issues. They provide a supportive "mentor-like" role on their floors while working to increase school spirit through various programming events and activities. There are 31 RA's for the North Residence and 10 at the Lakeshore Residence. RA's are also on-call for emergencies, where they are required to respond to situations and uphold the Residence Code of Conduct (See page 30 of this handbook). The main purpose of an RA is to develop lasting relationships with their residents, give support

Academic Clusters

Academic Clusters are groups of students who participate within the same academic program. Clusters help ease the transition from high school to post secondary education. They are also ideal for students eager to create social and academic relationships. This year there will be three clusters: the Applied Technology, Environmental (green living), and Hospitality, Recreation and Tourism.



Residence Life


Residence Life


Residence Life is structured around six main objectives that have been established to ensure that high standards of community living and student achievement are consistently maintained in the Residence environment.

Global Citizenship

Residence Life strives to instil a sense of social responsibility and global awareness through educational programming outside of the classroom and community development projects that reach far beyond the residence. With opportunities to enrich their own lives by giving to the community, students learn about the world around them and how they, as students of today, can become the trailblazers of tomorrow.

attending these activities will win The Hawk Cup. The purpose of The Hawk Cup is to encourage school pride and create a sense of community at Humber.


A group of students who will meet to be a part of the decision making process of the Residence. These students will be presented with ideas and plans and be asked to give their input to ensure a student-centred approach is taken in improving your Residence experience.


Each Resident Assistant is responsible for running a number of programs throughout the year for their section. These activities, whether on or off-campus, must meet one of the six areas of the Humber Residence Life Programming Puzzle: Academics, Arts, Community, Citizenship, Wellness and Diversity.

Academic Success

As the primary goal of Residence Life, Student Services Staff and Faculty work closely with Residents, providing resources and training, wherever possible, to support academic goals.


Want to go away for reading week? How about going to a place you can make a real difference in people's lives. Each year, Humber sends residents around the world to rebuild, enrich lives, and help those in need. In 2010, Humber sent 9 residents to the Dominincan Republic where students worked and lived in an orphanage. We also sent 19 students to rebuild homes in Biloxi, Mississippi with Habitat for Humanity.

Community Development

Residence Life seeks to establish a cohesive team environment where common learning goals are shared and good citizenship is practiced thus creating a positive image of Residence Life to the greater community.

Get Engaged and Get Involved

Throughout the year, the Residence offers many leadership opportunities. Watch for postings about opportunities to join groups, organizations, and programs both in Residence and On-campus! Here is a peek at some of the ways you can get involved:


Take an lead role in shaping what welcome week will look like next year. The committee designs, invents and creates the activities for each day of welcome week.

Personal Growth

Residence promotes a positive community life, where personal growth and enrichment are supported. It is recognized that a healthy community can best be sustained in a positive environment.



Rez committee provides the opportunity to work, in partnership with the Residence Life Staff, to create a positive Residence environment and create programming activities and events for the entire residence building. Typical committee events may include athletic games, charity fundraising, and events that celebrate special times of our academic year. Rez committee is comprised of the following members: President, VP-Finance, VP-Programming, VP-Communication, VP-Citizenship and Floor Representatives.

Student Leadership and Empowerment

Residence Life recognizes the significance and impact of student leadership in the Residence community. Encouraging interest and involvement in Residence life allows our students to make the most of their opportunities and gain the most out of their college experience.

The Leadership Institute continues to inspire and craft leadership qualities in students. Presented through a series of workshops, the Institute is designed to help students at Humber find their fit within the Institution and gain the skills necessary for effective leadership in student positions and beyond. Students can discover such things as goal setting, public speaking, and leadership styles as well as leadership opportunities on campus. The Leadership Institute is designed as a certificate program and will be held as a weekend workshop during the year.

How do I Get Involved?

It is important to get involved, as it will allow you to make friends, build relationships, gain valuable work experience, further develop your leadership skills, and enhance your resume. To apply for a position on one of the committees or groups above, please see your RA or phone your Residence Life Coordinator, at Ext. 77301 or 72044, North Residence or Ext. 73035, Lakeshore Residence.


Residence Life promotes and celebrates diversity by creating an atmosphere that fosters mutual respect. Humber Residence is a community of people from diverse racial, ethnic, social and economic backgrounds, national origins, religious and political beliefs, physical abilities and sexual orientations. All activities, programs, and interactions are enriched by our acceptance of one another, and the knowledge we gain from these shared experiences. 12


The Food and Rez Forum is an advisory committee that meets regularly to discuss food and residence service issues. One responsibility of this committee is to take suggestions from the Residence population on how to improve food, food service and residence facilities and services quality. These concerns are then presented to the appropriate panel for discussion. Food Forum members also participate in special events provided by Food Services. 13


The Hawk Cup is a series of building & campus-wide programs that challenge the students of each residence, and their respective floors, to "out spirit" one another. Residents who participate in these events will help to garner points for their floors. At the end of the year, the floor with the most active participation in both organizing and

Safety and Security


Safety and Security



The safety of our Residents is our number one priority. The guidelines and tips in this handbook will help ensure everyone's safety. Compromising security measures in the Residence is not acceptable and will be dealt with according to the Residence Code of Conduct. 1) Residence rooms should be locked at all times. 2) Do not lend out key cards or leave them lying around. If you lose your key card, you should notify the Front Desk immediately. There is a $25 replacement fee for a lost card. There will be a $50 fee for subsequent lost cards. Lending out your keys will result in a $50 fine. 3) Do not leave valuables in a visible location. Identify all personal belongings. The Humber insurance policy does not cover personal possessions or contents. We suggest that you purchase content insurance or check if your parent's home insurance policy includes coverage of your possessions while living in Residence. 4) You should not open doors or sign guests into the Residence unless you personally know the individual. 5) Report any suspicious person(s) or behaviour to the: Residence Emergency Line: North Residence Ext. 77000 Lakeshore Residence Ext. 73000 Public Safety/Security: North Campus Ext. 4000 Lakeshore Campus Ext. 4000 or a Resident Assistant immediately.

6) You should not store large amounts of cash in your wallet or room. 7) Always use the Campus Walk Program when walking on campus at night. Note at North Campus: We recommend that you take the sidewalk along Highway 27 to the Woodbine Centre at all times rather than using the shortcut through the Arboretum. 8) Helpful Hints about voice mail: Do not leave messages on voice mail indicating that no one is home. 9) Report all damaged locks, lights, and other safety hazards to the the work order line, Pervidi. You can access this through any computer at http://pervidi/ This is our on line work order system where you enter maintenance concerns for your building and suite/room. Emergency situations may be reported to the Residence Front Desk for immediate attention at extension 77201 North Residence, 73001 Lakeshore Residence. 10) Post emergency numbers where they can easily be found.

Fire/Smoke Detection: The alarm/voice pattern is four seconds of alarm beeps followed by the verbal message: "Fire, Feu". 1. If the detector announces "Fire, Feu" and fire is present leave your room immediately. 2. If fire is present, alert others by pulling the alarm at the fire pull station (located near the stairs) and evacuate the building. 3.

If you notice any problems it is the responsibility of the resident to report it to the Pervidi work order line. Please ensure that you complete a work order for any issues, simply noting them on your Room Condition Report does not mean it will be repaired.

Each room is equipped with a dual heating/ air-conditioning unit. The units will be set for air conditioning during the summer months and switched to heating for the winter months. Each unit has separate controls for temperature and fan speed. Air filters in the heating/air-conditioning units are scheduled to be replaced in December and May, or more frequently depending on what is required. (You will be notified of the exact date and time.) We ask you to leave approximately two feet of space in front of the unit in order for the maintenance staff to replace the filter. Maintenance staff is not permitted to move your personal property in order to replace the filters. If there is not adequate room, the Contractor will have to return at another time and you may be charged a service fee.

Room Transfers

We understand that there are times that students may be unhappy in their current room assignment, and we always do our best to ensure that residents enjoy (or are happy with) their living arrangements. However, with very few (if any) vacancies, we are unable to accommodate everyone's requests. It is important that Residents realize there will be no room changes before Thanksgiving, October 11, 2010 (except in extraordinary situations) and for January intake, room changes will not be allowed before the end of January. In the rare cases where students need to change rooms this must be done in consultation and coordination with the Residence Life Coordinators. Approved transfers may be subject to at $100 room transfer fee. Below are guidelines for room transfer requests. Single Style: Residents in a dorm style room who are requesting a move are to write a letter to the Residence Life Coordinator (RLC) stating why they are requesting a room transfer. The RLC will review and investigate your request. If the request is due to a conflict with a floor mate, a mediation session may occur between the parties before a room transfer is considered further. Residents may not request subsequent room transfers if one is granted. Suite Style: Most transfer requests in the suite style Residence will occur because of conflicts with suite mates. Residents should start with the informal stage to help solve the differences with your suite mate. Once you have completed the informal stage, then you can move onto the formal stage, however most conflicts are resolved at the informal stage.

Informal Stage

1. Discuss issues with your suite mate and try to work out your differences. 2. Meet with the RA on your floor. The RA may provide tips on how to overcome the conflict and may meet with you and your suite mate. 3. If necessary the RA may conduct a mediation session with you and your suite mate.

Move Out Process

Remember that withdrawing from residence early does not necessarily mean you will receive a refund. Residents are held responsible for the residence fees until the room can be rented out again, to a maximum of 1 month's charges, plus the loss of the $500 deposit. If you have decided to leave residence before the end of your agreement period, you must withdraw ON LINE, log-in and go to FORMS for the Withdrawal Form. This must be submitted at least one month prior to your departure. On your move out day you must hand in your Residence ID and mailbox key to the Front Desk. Your room will be inspected for damages. After your room inspection and withdrawal paperwork are completed, any refund (ie, dining plan) will be processed. Should you be eligible for a refund, it will be refunded the way you paid for it (i.e. credit card payments will be refunded to the credit card used). Please refer to your copy of the Residence Dining Plan Agreement for more details about refund eligibility. Notify Rogers (and return their equipmentwe do not do this for you), Humber or Guelph-Humber, Primus, your friends, family, subscriptions, of your new or home address as the Residence does not forward or hold mail at the front desk for you. Call Primus customer service and provide new forwarding address. Cancel newspapers and magazine subscriptions.

Meal Plan Refunds

Requests for cancellations and refunds are initiated when you fill out your Residence Withdrawal Form and hand it in to the Residence Administration Office (located at both the North and Lakeshore Campuses). Prior to the end of the winter semester, only amounts above the prorated basic minimum dining plan commitment of $62.90 per week is refundable, less a $50.00 administration fee. At the end of the Academic year, $1950 of any dining plan commitment is non refundable. Please refer to the details regarding refunds in your room and dining agreement. If you qualify for a dining plan refund, a cheque will be mailed to you from `Chartwells' at the address indicated on your Residence Withdrawal Form. Refunds take 3-6 weeks after receiving your Withdrawal Form. Note: The Retail Sales Tax Act states that all dining plans must be prepaid and that they are nonrefundable and non-transferable in order to qualify for the tax-exempt status.

Formal Stage

4. Meet with the Residence Life Coordinator. 5. The Residence Life Coordinator will investigate your request. 6. The Residence Life Coordinator may conduct a mediation session with the parties involved to assist in the situation. 7. A transfer may be granted if the conflict is not able to be resolved and only if space in the Residence permits.

Garbage & Recycling Centres

It is important for everyone to do their part and leave their garbage in the appropriate areas.

Please ensure that you put garbage inside the appropriate bins/chutes. Cardboard boxes are to be broken down prior to going into a chute.

Sanctions for major offences may include, but are not limited to, one or more of the following penalties: 1. Disciplinary Probation: Residence Administration may place a Resident on probation (discipline or alcohol). When such a sanction is imposed, they will be notified in writing indicating the duration of the probation period.

In some cases, a behavioural or alcohol contract may be written indicating certain conditions that must be adhered to. 2. Administrative Relocation: Residence Administration reserves the right to remove a Resident from a particular floor if it is deemed necessary and in the best interests of the community. 3. Restriction: A Resident may be restricted from entering a portion of the building for a period of time. 4.

Maintenance and Support:

Phone support is available through the Technical Services Desk by dialling extension 4786. Please do not engage Facilities Management or the Residence Front Desk with RezNet issues. The quickest and easiest way to get help is always to call the Technical Service Desk. During the first few days of the Fall semester, Support Agents are available in the Lobby to answer questions and help with connectivity issues. Please do not hesitate to engage them. Agents also have step-by-step tip sheets and other documentation Guests might find helpful. Each suite in Residence is configured to work with only one computer. Swapping out one computer for another will disable the network jack. Use the public, wired ports in the Common Areas instead. Contact the Technical Service Desk if you suspect your jack is disabled.

Information & Technology Services provides very limited support for routers, hubs, and switches connected to RezNet. Users are responsible for all connectivity issues beyond network appliances. Please consider calling the manufacturer for additional, more comprehensive, support. Like all complex networks, RezNet requires regular maintenance and Guests may experience occasional service interruptions. Information & Technology Services strives to advertise outages in advance and limit their frequency and duration. Patience and understanding is appreciated.

Protecting One's Self:

As a rule, everything originating from your computer is your responsibility (whether you generated it or not). It is extremely important to take appropriate precautions to protect yourself and your computer. 1) Do not share personal account information (username or password) with anyone, not even your friends, relatives, or roommates. 2) Use passwords others cannot easily guess. A good password is... a. Unique to each system b. At least six or more characters in length c. Not a real word found in any dictionary d. Uses a mix of uppercase (A-Z) and lowercase (a-z) letters e. Includes at least one number (0-9) f. Makes use of special characters (%, $, @, *, etc.) 3) Never leave an application logged-in and unattended. When you are finished using an application, log out or completely exit from it. 4) When you are going to be away from your computer for an extended period of time, lock the screen or completely shut it down. 5) Install antivirus software and keep it up-todate. PC-cillin is supported by Humber and is available in the Bookstore for $10. 6) Run a current operating system and keep it patched. Turn off any services (file sharing, network printing, etc.) you do not need. 7) Keep academic data on your H-drive. Keeping data on the H-drive makes it portable and protects you from hard drive failure and theft. Note: You should not assume everything on the Internet is legal to possess and/or

Policy Enforcement:

Minor infractions are generally resolved informally. That being said, Information & Technology Services reserves the right to logically disconnect any compromised computer from RezNet. In such cases, users are expected to follow instructions from the Technical Service Desk so that their RezNet connection can be immediately re-enabled. Repeated minor infractions or misconduct of a significant nature will be referred to Humber Administration and may result in disciplinary action. Depending on the nature of the infraction, sanctions may include the loss of RezNet privileges, dismissal from Humber, and/or legal action.

Respecting Other Users:

RezNet is a shared resource. Everything that happens on RezNet has the potential to affect other RezNet users and the Internet at large. No outbound traffic is being blocked, but traffic is being shaped (managed) to give Web, FTP, e-mail, and chat priority over available bandwidth. RezNet users are asked to refrain from the following activities: · Installingawirelessaccesspoint · ServingupWebpages · OfferingDHCPorBOOTPservices · Creatingabridgetoanexternalnetwork · Scanningorexploitingnetwork vulnerabilities · Attemptingtobypassinternalsecurity systems · Unauthorizedorattemptedunauthorized use of an account · Reading,copying,changing,ordeleting another user's data Due to excessive bandwidth demands, peer-to-peer file sharing within Residence is being blocked. External file sharing (Gnutella, KaZaA, e-Donkey, BitTorrent, etc.) is shaped as a low-priority service (shared 44
