What is RezCup?

RezCup, put simply, is the most awesome thing that has ever graced the University of Ottawa campus. It combines passion, pride, determination, and competition into one massive challenge: help your residence defeat the other 6 residences and claim your place as supreme champions. Points can be earned, and lost, in various ways, which will be explained in detail below. In order to be successful, everyone must work together. This challenge is not for the faint of heart: only one champion shall emerge – will it be your residence?

Keep your eye out for event posters with this logo on it. They count for points! For a better explanation of how the points are awarded and for what, keep reading!

Residence Colours

For identification and pride, each residence has been assigned a colour.
90U is a proud green.
Brooks is a  bright orange.
Hyman-Soloway is a daring purple.
Leblanc is a royal blue.
Stanton is an electrifying yellow.
Marchand is a shocking pink.
Thompson is a strong red.
Friel is a burning orange.
Henderson is a cool green.
Rideau is a popping lime green. 

Point System

Click on each category below for specific information on how each category works and how points are awarded.

If you have any questions or want more information on how to get involved, stop by our office or talk to your building representative!

Each month (except December and April) the VP Social and their social committee will host a Residence Wide event. Points are allotted based on participation. Basically, we’ll have a sign in sheet for each residence. To make it fair, points are awarded based on the overall population of each residence.

The percent participation (P value) is calculated for each residence. The residences are then ranked from 1 through 7 according to their level. The residence with the highest P value is awarded 350 points, 2nd highest is awarded 300 points, and so on and so forth in increments of 50 points.

That being said, due to the logistical difficulties associated with appartment style residences, we have included a small adjustment factor to keep the playing field fair.

Go to events, and bring your neighbours with you!

very month a specific campaign is focused on by the RAUO and all residences. These campaigns are month long – providing ample time to allow for give and take in the standings. Examples might be a food drive for the food bank, collecting pop can tabs for March of Dimes, etc.

The residences are ranked in terms of how completed the challenge the most successfully. For example, in September, it was based on who collected the most pennies. The residence with the highest ranking is awarded 350 points, 2nd highest is awarded 300 points, and so on and so forth in increments of 50 points.

These campaigns are designed to give back to the community and help those in need, enabling social responsibility.

General Assemblies (also known as GAs) are held three times a year (September, January, and March). They are open to all residents and serve not only as a forum for discussion about RAUO events and policies, but as an important opportunity for residences to discuss issues, concerns, or suggestions about residence life.

The number of attending Floor/Cluster Representatives is divided by the total number of required Floor/Cluster representatives. This decimal value is then multiplied by 350 and the quotient is then awarded in terms of points.

GAs are your opportunity to make yourself heard – come on out!

Building Councils are monthly meetings held by the Building Representative with their Floor/Cluster Representatives in order to brainstorm and organize events and communicate about potential concerns in residence.

The number of attending Floor/Cluster Representatives is divided by the total number of required Floor/Cluster representatives. This decimal value is then multiplied by 350 and the quotient is then awarded in terms of points.

]When stuff gets broken in residence, we hear about it. Our residences are our homes – we need to treat them with respect and keep them in one piece. When stuff gets damaged, points come off.

The deduction of points will be calculated monthly. The total amount of damages per residence will be divided by the number of residents, giving us a per capita number which will then be multiplied by a uniform factor to give us how many points will be deducted.

If any building goes a month without damages, a huge 350 point bonus will be awarded.
