I am a member of innis college and i stay at the chestnut residence this year. i want to stay in a residence other than chestnut or innis, but i am offered space only in those 2 residences. what should i do?
Thanks in advance!
dude, i don’t know why you wouldn’t want to live at innis. that residence is HELLA NICE. and i haven’t been to chestnut, but i hear it’s great. anyway, i’m sure you have your reasons. that’s cool. this is a judgement-free zone.
unfortunately, if you’ve only been offered space at innis and chestnut and you don’t want to live there, you’re kind of limited in options. what you can do is go onto your MyRes and rank residences in the order you’d prefer. then you might get onto a waiting list for one of them. however, the spots for upper years are pretty limited and the notification you get about whether there’s a space for you will probably be last-minute, since waiting lists are so uncertain. so don’t bank on getting a spot.
just in case you don’t get into another residence, i’d recommend you also start exploring other housing possibilities. you can search off-campus rentals close to St. George through housing services, do your own search, or apply to become the official school ghost for one of the colleges (you’ll probably have a better chance at that last one if you are already a ghost).
if all else fails, they have free cardboard boxes at no frills.
happy house hunting,
