Vote YES For Our Fee Levy Increase!

Vote Yes profile.png

Since becoming a fee levy group in 2013, the Concordia Greenhouse has been a resource hub for students, actively supporting experiential learning opportunities and providing ecologically-grown produce and plants. As demand for our services grows, a fee-levy increase will allow the Concordia Greenhouse to continue its mandate in providing students with affordable educational workshops and programs, locally grown food and plants, internship and job opportunities, and a beautiful space for study, respite and fun events. Do you agree to increase the fee levy of the Concordia Greenhouse by 12 cents per credit for undergraduate students, to a total of 24 cents per credit, effective Fall 2017.

Fee Levy Opt-Out for Concordia Undergraduates

The Concordia Greenhouse is a fee-levy group at Concordia University. The majority of our funding comes from an undergraduate fee levy. Undergraduate students pay $0.12 per credit each semester so that we can exist, be open to the public, and offer amazing services and programming for our users.
Should you wish to opt-out of funding our organization, you can stop by our office during our open hours of 11am – 6pm, January 23rd – February 3rd, or at the Concordia Community fair on January 25th on the 7th floor (beside the CSU office) between 11am – 3pm or January 31st, 11-3pm at The Hive on the Loyola campus.
Should you wish to opt out, please bring your student ID card and student account record during the opt-out period and we’ll provide you with a refund. Refunds will be provided in cash at the fee levy rate of $0.12 per credit/per semester (for undergrads.) You can provide your student record in different ways: by showing your academic record via your own laptop or mobile phone; by logging onto to your myconcordia portal from a computer at our office; or by providing a printout of your record.

We can provide access to those with reduced mobility if you contact us to make an appointment. Email or call 514-848-2424 x. 5134.
