A relocation allowance is made available to new faculty members to assist in the cost of moving. Entitlement to this allowance or any special provisions related to your relocation will be set out in your letter of appointment. Approved relocation expenses are reimbursed according to the Relocation Allowance Regulations administered by Financial Services.
Craig Churchward in Financial Services is your primary contact for relocation assistance, procedures, and questions. Craig has been assisting new faculty with their moving arrangements and claims at the U of L.
You can reach Craig Churchward at email@example.com or (403) 329-2398.
Refer to the Relocation Allowance Regulations for information about eligible expenses. New faculty may choose to use the services of a moving company, in which case, the University recommends obtaining 2-3 estimates from professional movers. Arrangements for estimates of freight and cartage costs and direct billing of these charges to the University can be made by contacting Craig. Upon agreement by all parties involved, approval is given to the moving company to book the move and invoice the cost directly to Financial Services upon completion. The new employee is responsible for any costs over and above the maximum set forth in the letter of appointment.
