The academic year is about to start and it’s finally time to settle in Canada. Your long-term options, depending on your preference and lifestyle, vary between school provided accommodation and off campus housing.
Staying in with a Canadian family is the perfect way to blend in as an expat. Several Canadian families are contracted by Universities to host and welcome international students in their homes. If your lack of fluency in English or French ever bothered you, staying with a Canadian family will certainly make that problem go away. Homestays are also home-like and friendly environments that host young students taking a giant step to an emancipated life abroad. Commonly a homestay refers to a small-family house, preferably having a student of their own for a child welcoming an international student to stay for as long as the school year goes on. Students are entitled to a furnished cozy room, family meals and participation in the family and the community.
The location of the family and their lifestyle is arranged to best suit the students interests, preferably close to the University. It happens that the University arranges for the family to meet their newcomer at the airport for the purpose of early bonding.
Average cost of homestay accommodation: $400 – $800 CDN per month and the price mostly varies due to the location of the house. It is likely to be charged with an advance of 200 CDN.
Usually, Universities in Canada provide the students with accommodation of their own close to the Campus. Rooms are basically the same everywhere, they might not be furnished however and the kitchen, baths and toilets are shared. Commonly it’s difficult to get a private room, as the rooms are mostly shared with other students yet they are definitely separated by gender. Dormitories for instance are a concrete facility providing rooms for either only girls, or only boys. When living in the dormitory you are close to the university and the campus activities at all times including leisure and educational activities, group studying and much more. This way, your life will circle around students of your own age and similar interests, a perfect way to make new friends. Average cost of residence/dormitory rooms: $3,000 – $7,500 CDN per school year.
