Ryerson Residence Alumni

Ryerson Ram Matt Buie won the 'B' Final at the 2010 FISU World University rowing championships in Hungary, Aug. 13-15. Buie represented Team Canada in the men's pair category with teammate Eric Tremblay, University of Victoria. This is the first international competition Buie has competed in as a member of Team Canada. The pair recorded a time of 6:46.52 over a two-kilometre course.

Congrats to our Ryerson Residence Alum-Matt Buie!

New laundry machines in all 3 buildings!

We are happy and excited to announce that over the summer we tendered and negotiated a contract with a laundry equipment provider for all 3 Residence buildings at Ryerson University. The old equipment was quite old and dated and it was time for it to be replaced.
We knew the timeline would be quite tight to tender the new contract and get the equipment installed in time for move-in day. Unfortunately due to delays outside of our control the new equipment could not be installed prior to August 29, 2010.
However, the new equipment will be installed this coming week (schedule below). You may experience some service disruptions while the installation takes place and the old machines are removed to make room for the new machines to arrive.
Connected to the installation of these new machines is a new OneCard-based payment system. As you know you were billed a laundry fee over the summer which will be placed on your Ryerson OneCard. This OneCard based system could not be installed until a Laundry contractor was chosen. This OneCard-based system will be installed mid-September.
Until that time the laundry equipment will be available free of charge. We ask that you respect the machines and the environment during that time by using the washers and dryers responsibly.
If you have any questions about the laundry equipment or delays please contact housing@ryerson.ca or call 416-979-5284.

We are quite sure you will be happy with the new system once it is complete. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
