Accommodation Options for International Students DormitoryMany schools have accommodation conveniently located on campus. Rooms can vary in size and quality, and many dormitories have shared kitchens, toilets, showers and laundry facilities. There is usually an option of having either a shared or private room, and dormitories are usually separated by gender. Cafeterias and meal plans can often be included in the cost of the room. Most dormitories come furnished, and can be a great way to become involved in campus activities and meet other students.Home stays
Many Canadian families welcome international students. This may be an effective way to learn about daily life in Canada, and meet new, friendly people. Home stays offer a stable and secure environment for younger people coming to study in Canada. Typically, a home stay consists of a Canadian family hosting a student in their home while the student attends classes. Meals and a private, furnished room are provided in the home, and participation in family and community activities is encouraged.Off-Campus Housing
Renting is an option, but price, quality and availability vary greatly. Rents are often quite high in major cities, and places are not always available. Many students share accommodation to keep costs down.
