Housing Services

The Housing office is a free service for all George Brown College students.  We offer support in helping students to find off-campus housing.  Our office is located at the St. James campus in room B130. Our knowledgeable staff can assist you in your housing search and give pointers on what to look for. We currently have a partnership with Ontario Student Housing and encourage students to view their listings.

In general it usually takes about 2-3 weeks to find an apartment in Toronto.  Apartment listings usually go up 1-2 months previous to their availability.  So if you’re looking to move beginning of September it is usually good to start looking in July.

The Housing Market

Most of the accommodation listed at the Housing Service is located within approximately 30 minutes travel time from the college. Many students prefer to live within walking distance of the college. This saves money and time and also means that students can participate more easily in a variety of campus activities. However, because this accommodation is so popular, it is usually priced somewhat higher and is rented more quickly.

Types of Accommodation Listed

Landlords and students list rooms in shared apartments and houses, as well as private apartments and houses for rent. Sharing accommodation with either a family or another student is the most economical type of student housing. Sometimes a group of students will look for a private apartment or house and then share the rent. Accommodation may be furnished, unfurnished or semi-furnished. Private apartments and houses are usually unfurnished.

Shared Accommodation

While most students need to purchase and cook their own food, some listings in this category may indicate that board is available. Although your room may be furnished, you should be prepared to supply your own bedding and towels.

Room: A private bedroom with shared access to only bathroom and kitchen facilities.

Shared Apartment or House: A private bedroom with shared access to the kitchen, bathroom, living room etc.

Semi-Private: A private bedroom in a house or apartment with one or more private facilities i.e. bathroom, kitchen and/or sitting or study area.

Private Accommodation

Private accommodation is self-contained and usually has a private entrance which separates it from the rest of the building. You must be able to lock this entrance.

Apartment: A unit with a least one bedroom, a bathroom, a kitchen, and one or more other rooms, such as a living room, all of which are private.

Bachelor Apartment: A unit with one room for living and sleeping, as well as a bathroom and kitchen area, all of which are private.

House: A complete house for rent.
