Student Accommodation

Each institute has its own policy for housing and may offer a range of options for single and married students. Most common types of accommodations are:

School-Provided Home stays: A home stay usually consists of a Canadian family hosting a student in their home while the student attends classes in Canada. This includes meals as well as a private, furnished room. (Cost: CDN $ 400 - $ 800 per month)

School-Provided Dormitory: Many schools have accommodation conveniently located on or near their campuses. Rooms can vary in size and in quality, and many dormitories have shared kitchens, toilets, showers and laundry facilities. In some cases, there are cafeterias and meal plans that can be included in the cost of the room. Most dormitories come furnished (Cost: CDN $ 3000 - $ 7500 per year).

Off Campus Housing: Many students share or rent apartments to save costs. Most rental apartments do not include furniture or meals. Some, however, include the cost of heat and/or electricity in the rent. Listings of available apartments or homes are published weekly in local newspapers. Rents vary greatly according to the location and time of year. (Cost: CDN $ 250 - $ 700 per month).
