Student Fee Funded Units, Ancillaries, and Academic Support Units
- Table 1 in Annex 3 includes a summary of the budgets for Student Fee
Funded Units, Ancillaries and
Academic Support Units.
- In March 1998, the Campus & Community Affairs Committee reported
to the Board that the Student
Services Committee endorsed the Western Student Ancillary Fee schedule detailed in Tables 2-4 in Annex 3,
including the change to the fee relating to the Student Development Centre, from $63.20 to $66.35, an
increase of $3.15 or 5%. The Student Development Centre provides numerous services to students, including
psychological counselling, career counselling, job placement, and academic counselling such as learning
skills. The reason for the fee increase is that the number of students utilizing the services of the Centre has
increased and, as a result, salary costs have increased.
The overall Student Ancillary Fees will increase 14.3% for full-time undergraduate students. This is due
principally to the introduction of a universal bus pass which forms part of the undergraduate student
organization fees, based on the results of a student referendum. As reported by CCAC in its March report to
the Board, the current cost of a September through April bus pass is $400 per student. The University
Students' Council has negotiated with the London Transit Corporation (LTC) a $75 mandatory fee for all
full-time undergraduate students, subject to approval by the Board of Governors. The $75 fee will give
students unlimited ridership on all regularly scheduled LTC services from September through April. Based
on a presentation by the USC to the CCAC in March, the CCAC recommended to Property & Finance that
the universal bus pass proposal be approved as part of the 1998-99 student organization (USC) fee for
full-time undergraduate students.

Residences, along with their schedules of
