Housing

Apartment for Rent sign

The Education Housing Board is intended primarily for teacher candidates as it lists short-term accommodation room rentals in landlord-occupied homes, or where the arrangement is by the week or block. Longer-term rentals are directed to the Queen's Community Housing Accommodations Listing Service.

Graduate students may also find suitable accommodation as some landlords are also willing to rent room(s) during the practicum teaching weeks.

Queen’s also recently became a member of an international student-to-student housing database for locating short term housing: www.housinganywhere.com

The Faculty is grateful to the landlords who provide our students with a home away from home.
