The mediation service is a free, confidential resource that assists in the resolution of problems between students and landlords, students and London residents and/or students, and students in the areas of housing and lifestyle. The service offers the concerned parties a forum to present and discuss their problems before a neutral third party. It facilitates the resolution process by providing information and suggesting approaches toward reaching a solution.
Off-Campus Advisors are available every day (519-661-3787 or firstname.lastname@example.org) during the academic year until midnight to respond to questions or concerns related to Off-Campus housing.
