Housing Services

The University of Niagara Falls Canada is committed to helping you find an affordable, convenient, and comfortable place to live. With the help of our housing partners, we are ready to assist you during and after your search for a new home.

Finding a place to live is one of the first things you want to do after receiving your admission letter from UNF and deciding to study with us. Even with our guidance, you are still responsible for finding and securing your own housing for the duration of your studies. It is important to plan a realistic housing budget and begin your search for housing before booking a plane ticket.

Comprehensive housing support begins before you arrive in Ontario and continues throughout your studies at UNF. Our housing coordinator offers support in your search for off-campus housing and other housing-related matters through one-to-one meetings, live sessions, and email.

If you have any questions or require support with housing, contact our housing coordinator.  Please include your Student ID in the subject line.

The scenic city of Niagara Falls is home to thousands of students yearly. So, whether you’re relocating from out of town or coming from another province or country, you will be joining a thriving local community of students. To make your transition easier and support your housing needs, the University of Niagara Falls Canada has developed partnerships with SpacesShared, and 4Stay to make safe and affordable housing available to you based on your preference. 

UNF does not supervise or regulate rentals but have made many resources available including the portals below to assist in your search for housing through our Housing team. We strongly recommend that all housing requests be made no later than one month prior to arrival.

UNF has partnered with 4Stay to offer students a variety of housing options for rent near the University campus. It is easy to search online for fully furnished apartments with all utilities included, private rooms, shared rooms, and entire homes for a term, a year, month-to-month or short-term rentals. Also, students can find a roommate from UNF to live with.

Homestays are a great way to learn about Canadian culture and immerse yourself in a local family. Many students find benefits to a homestay as it is generally cheaper than just renting.
