Homestays

Homestays are family homes that welcome an international student to stay for the school year. They continue to be popular choices for international students coming to study in Canada. Often, several Canadian families are contracted by a school or university to host and welcome international students.

The homestay comes with multiple advantages, including developing your language skills and getting access to a furnished room, family meals, and other family activities to help get you involved with the community.

Typically, your institution will provide you with families that match your interests, preferences of amenities, and location upon request. Depending on your location, prices will differ accordingly.

The average cost of homestay accommodation is between $400 - $800 CDN per month.

Dormitory

Canadian institutions have a range of options for accommodation, including a chance to reside in or near the student’s campus. You can find furnished dormitory rooms, but a lot of the time, the kitchen and bathroom are shared with other students. In certain cases, the rooms may also need to be shared but will be separated by gender.

Certain institutions also provide meal plans which are included in the cost of the room. Choosing to stay in a dormitory comes with its advantages. It is the most popular choice made by students because it enables them to become involved in various campus activities and interact with other students.

The average cost of a dormitory room is around $3,000 - $7,500 CDN per school year.

Renting

Renting an apartment is an option provided to the students but is entirely the student’s responsibility. Rent prices depend on the location and are usually comparatively higher, especially in major cities. The student has the option to accommodate a roommate to keep the prices lower.

Selected institutions might offer an off-campus housing service that will provide you with multiple affordable accommodation options near your institution. They can also help you to find roommates.

While renting, there are a plethora of places to choose from. An independent house is usually rated at a higher price and is expensive for one person, but students can share or rent suites. These houses are self-contained with a kitchen, bathroom, and bedrooms. A few factors to consider while choosing to rent privately are the cost of heat, electricity, and other bills for planning your budget.

The average cost of shared accommodation in Canada is $250 - $700 CDN monthly. The average price of a suite is $400 - $1500 CDN monthly.
