Housing services

When you arrive in Calgary, you may need to arrange a short-term place to stay if you arrive early  or to give you time to find a long-term off-campus rental.We strongly recommend that you plan to stay somewhere short-term, to avoid agreeing to a long-term rental without first meeting the landlord, visiting and inspecting the property, and testing out commute options from the property to UCalgary campus.Living on campus is a great option for international students. Students who choose to live on-campus do so because it allows you to be conveniently located close to your classes as well as other campus resources and provides great opportunities for meeting other students.
