Thinking about living off campus in Toronto? Log in to the Housing Finder to start your search!
Here are some important things to keep in mind:
- Toronto’s rental market is competitive and expensive. Sharing units with roommates is a great way to save money.
- Viewing a unit is important to avoid scams and ensure the unit suits your needs. Come early to Toronto or ask a trusted individual or a realtor to assist if you are searching while out of the city.
- Landlords can only legally request last month’s rent and a refundable key deposit up front, and should not ask for application fees, security/damage deposits, etc.
- Ask lots of questions. Request photos and floor plans, inquire about the unit’s amenities and safety, and make sure you know who the landlord is and their contact information.
