Private House/Apartment Rentals

Many Canadian college and university students find rental accommodation that they share with a number of “room-mates” or “house-mates”. It is quite common for students to share a house or apartment unit. A wide range of rental units are available and the costs of these units will vary greatly depending on size, location, and access to the public transportation system. This type of accommodation is generally unfurnished so there will be additional set-up costs such as the purchase of furniture and utility connection charges.
