Complete this form by Monday April, 24, 2023 to notify the Knox Residence Life team of your move out date and time. This will allow the team to understand how to best support you with your move out process and for you to note if you will need to use the elevator and/or a cart.

We wish to acknowledge this land on which Knox Residence and the University of Toronto operates. For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca and, most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
