Night watch Security

All minor participants must be accompanied at all times by an adult (at least 18 years of age) on University of Ottawa premises, with a ratio of at least 1 adult for every 10 minors. Overnight security requirements must be coordinated with the University of Ottawa. No external security companies are allowed on campus.

Rate 2024: $257.28 plus tax, per security ambassador, per night. Additional charges apply on statutory holidays.

The rate includes overnight security services from 10:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. The schedule is fixed and cannot be changed. The security ambassador will conduct a tour of the rooms assigned to your group. If you wish to have one on each floor that your group occupies, please notify your coordinator.

Duties of the security ambassador are:

  1. That participants remain in their rooms after the assigned time (excepting issues of personal safety or illness).

  3. That noise levels inside participants rooms are at an acceptable level to the residence and its guests.

It is not the responsibility of night watch personnel to supervise, discipline or control the participants. These duties are the responsibility of the client’s supervising personnel.

Night watch personnel will report unruly behavior, excessive noise and inappropriate movement of participants, emergencies or illness to the client’s supervising personnel for appropriate action.


Parking on campus for vehicles is available, but limited, on a first come-first-serve basis. For more information, please visit parking at uOttawa.  

There is no parking for buses. If your group is traveling by motorcoach, the company you are traveling with is probably well aware of bus parking options in downtown Ottawa. We strongly suggest that arrangements be made prior to your arrival on campus. Please visit the City of Ottawa for more information.
