Our programs and residence reflect our commitment to academic excellence and leadership. 

Huntington University, located in Greater Sudbury, Ontario, Canada, is an independent liberal arts university specializing in Communication StudiesGerontology and Religious StudiesAs one of four federated universities located on campus, Huntington offers the best of both worlds – you get a small-campus feel and the benefits of a larger university. Huntington University is affiliated with the United Church of Canada, and is administered by a Board of Regents that includes two resident student members. 

 

The Huntington University Residence provides a valuable experience in community living, and the highest standards of ethical and moral conduct are expected: personal integrity, commitment to honesty without compromise, (and a willingness to place the good of the community alongside the good of self.)  It is hoped that all residents will be guided by commonsense and courtesy, respect for each other’s rights and a willingness to follow the rules and regulations required by this residence and its buildings.  The atmosphere within the University will be what each student makes it, in full cooperation with the other residents.

 

The rules, regulations and policies which form our Community Standards are those of the Huntington University Board of Regents, established in consultation with the Huntington University Residence Student Association, provincial regulations, and insurance and legal advisors. They are designed to ensure a safe and secure environment which fosters academic and personal growth. The coeducational and cooperative lifestyle here provides excellent opportunity for such development.

 

The student is not a tenant of Huntington but a student with residential privileges.

 

The Landlord and Tenant Act has no application to the relationship between Huntington University and the student.

Huntington University exists to provide a liberal arts education, in particular:

 

• Within the Laurentian University context by adopting a holistic approach to education and providing close personal direction and support to the student as an individual;

 

• Through research, academic knowledge, ethical discernment and spiritual development;

 

• Through a residence life that encourages student growth and leadership;

 

• Beyond the Laurentian context, by offering unique programs that reflect Huntington University’s United Church of Canada heritage.

b) The room assessment form should be completed properly by the Proctor in conjunction with the resident.  Both parties must sign the form. 

 

c) All assessments are done in detail, as this is the basis upon which damage charges are determined.

 

d) If there are any discrepancies on the form, it is the resident’s responsibility to report them to the Proctor, who will then inform the Director of Admin. Services. 

 

e) When a resident moves out without signing the room assessment form, he or she accepts the Proctor’s assessment and any liability that is subsequently determined.

 

f) At the beginning of the year, the resident must immediately report any missing article(s) or damage(s) in the room to his or her Proctor; otherwise, the resident is held responsible.

 

g) At move-out time, any changes to the room’s condition indicated on the room assessment form, are the resident’s responsibility and may involve a damage charge being imposed.  If a damage charge is imposed, an invoice will be issued to the resident with an administrative fee. (Refer to 6 below, Administration Fee)

 

h) The Director of Administrative Services will review all rooms that are vacated.  If the Director discovers unreported damages, the resident is held responsible.

 

i) If the resident does not agree with the Proctor’s assessment of the room, then the Proctor will bring this to the attention of the Director of Administrative Services for a final determination.

 

6.    Administration Fee

 

An Administration fee of $25.00 is charged on all invoices to a resident or house regardless of the amount of the original charge.  This fee covers the extra administration costs of procuring the necessary clean-up, repairs (where applicable), invoicing, receipting, and other accounting duties performed.  This also applies to any damage or clean-up charged against the caution fee at year-end.

 

7.    Something to Consider

 

Living in residence is a privilege, one that involves certain responsibilities common to all residence students.  It is the intention of the Huntington Community Standards to clearly outline the responsibilities shared between the resident and the Huntington Administration.

 

This Agreement is essential to ensure that individuals may enjoy their freedoms while protecting the collective rights of all residents, and upholding the Huntington University’s expectations of reasonable conduct.  It is hoped that all residents will be guided by notions of courtesy, respect for each other’s rights, and a shared commitment to community life, towards the aim of creating an environment which is conducive to enhancing the academic, personal and social growth which is crucial to the University experience.

 

Living in residence is not for everyone.  Our residence accommodates a high-density population of diverse individuals.  You may find that the requirements for cooperation, consideration, compromise and respect for authorities demanded by this high-density lifestyle are burdensome.  If this lifestyle does not suit you, then we strongly encourage you to consider alternate accommodation.

 

Huntington University Residence does not have the facilities, resources or expertise to deal with students’ serious behaviour and emotional issues.  If a student engages in harmful behaviour, or behaviour that is reasonably perceived to be a threat to him/herself, or to others; or compromises his/her personal safety (including, but not limited to underage drinking, drug use, bulimia, cutting, abusive behaviour) or, where a pattern of behaviour by a student is sufficient to create significant disruption to other student(s).

 

Student housing reserves the right to notify a parent or guardian.  In some cases, a resident may be asked to find more suitable accommodation off campus.  In this case, the students’ residence contract would be terminated.

 

Students with Special Needs

 

If you are a first year student entering residence for the fall term, and have a specific requirement for residence accommodations due to a learning, medical, physical, psychological, or sensory disability, you must contact the Accessibility Services Office at Laurentian University to arrange suitable accommodation upon application.  All requests must be supported by documentation from a physician, psychologist or similar professional, and must explain the rationale for your request.  You are still required to apply to residence, and to sign the contract, and make payments by the indicated deadlines, in addition to contacting the Accessibility Services Office to ensure suitable accommodations.

Students must exercise great care in the preparation and clean-up of their own meals.  If minimum standards of cleanliness, tidiness and safety are not maintained, Huntington’s administration will assume responsibility for the clean-up and will charge the house for all costs incurred, plus an administrative fee. The Disciplinary Committee can also issue a House fine if cleanliness and safety standards are not met. House residents will be required to be on “Clean-Up Duty” (“kitch-ditch”), approximately once a month, as scheduled by the Proctor. It is an essential responsibility that ensures health and safety standards.  Students who do not fulfill these responsibilities, will be fined and may not be permitted back into residence.

Failure to clean up said hazard will result in a $10.00 fine. Students are also responsible for cleaning up after their own illnesses (nose bleed, vomiting etc.). Those who don’t, will be fined $25.00. If no one on the floor accepts responsibility for either infraction, the floor will receive the fine.  Kitchen Gunge (unwashed dishes) will be disposed of every Monday morning at 8 AM.  It is the responsibility of the residents to wash their own dishes.  Dishes left unwashed create a health and safety issue as rodents and fruit flies will be around if dishes are left unwashed.  In the event of a holiday, the Kitchen Gunge will be disposed of Tuesday at 8 AM.

 

b) AED: The building is equipped with an Automated External Defibrillator for emergency cardiac resuscitation. This is located in the main foyer entrance.

12. Damage  

 

Costs incurred from damage to any area of the residence, or to any of the contents will be charged to those deemed responsible.  If an individual responsibility cannot be determined, the House will be held responsible.  An administrative fee will also be charged.

 

If damage occurs to a student’s room, or should any item be missing, the cost of repairs or replacement plus the administrative fee, will be taken from the student’s caution fee.  Should the cost exceed the caution fee, the student will be billed for the remainder.  Students leaving rooms in an unacceptable condition may be refused readmission to residence.

 

ROOM RADIATORS – PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!!!!!

 

RADIATORS CAN FREEZE – The radiator pipes will freeze if windows are left open for an extended period in cold weather.  If a radiator freezes and bursts, the occupant(s) will be fined $200.00 and will be held financially responsible by Huntington, for the repair and any damages caused, up to our insurance deductible of $5,000.00. The insurance company may recover additional costs from the resident responsible through the legal system.  Please be sure to keep your window closed, blinds slightly open for circulation and your thermostat set at no less than 68 degrees F. or 18 degrees C.

 

To air out your room, you may open your window, but please be careful.  It is recommended that you limit this to 5 minutes at a time weather permitting.  If you know or suspect your radiator is frozen, please report it to a Proctor or the Residence Supervisor immediately.  This section is not to be taken lightly. Please take this information seriously.
