Rental Buildings Near Toronto Universities Offering Student Incentives (MAP)

Published:

With the dog days of summer coming to a bittersweet end, it’s almost time for students to head back to school — albeit a bit differently than in previous years.

And, after months of online classes, many universities and colleges will once again be offering in-person learning (with proof of vaccination) for those attending, including the University of Toronto and York University.

Going to university and college is already expensive. Between tuition, textbooks, and living expenses (not to mention beer) there isn’t always much wiggle room in the budget. Tack on pandemic-related expenses and students will be looking for any way to save money this year.

With the return to ‘normalcy’ looming, many students will be looking for places to live closer to campus, and for those still trying to figure out where they’re going to live during the upcoming semester, there are a number of rentals in Toronto that are not only close to campuses but also offer great incentives for students.
