Diversity & Inclusion

Community Commitment

The Chestnut Residence community strives to be a safe, equitable, accessible, and positive space for all our community members including students, staff & guests. Diversity and respect of thought, belief, orientation and background is encouraged and expected.

Every community member is responsible for their behaviour and for their treatment of others in a manner that is free of discrimination, harassment and ignorance. Any behaviour that conflicts with this commitment to the community will be addressed through the Residence Code of Conduct. Should any needs arise in terms of accessibility, the Residence will provide arrangements as required.

Chestnut Residence also strives to provide educational programming that includes our commitment to community. Any community member who wishes to see particular programming or equity initiatives within residence, is encouraged to contact Residence Life for support.
