Failure to meet the payment deadlines will result in the student forfeiting his/her bed in residence.

    If any of our residents are having challenges or concerns in residence, they are encouraged to speak to one of the residence staff members. Our staff are fully trained to deal with any issue that may arise and will work to help every resident in any way they can.

    Can a student be evicted from residence if he/she does not do well academically?

    A resident must be registered as a full-time student in order to remain eligible to live in residence. Should a student be unsuccessful in completing a term at Lambton College, he/she will be required to leave residence as well.

    Who do I contact if I am concerned about the well being of my son or daughter in residence?

    If you have concerns about your students safety or health, please call and speak to the residence coordinator or security staff. You can also call at any time to ensure your concern is addressed as quickly as possible. See our contact list.
