  • Long-Term Housing Options

    Sarnia has a variety of off campus rental options including single homes and apartments. Students wishing to live off-campus should research vacancy availability and consider having roommates to help ease the costs associated with housing. It is also quite common for students to sign at least a one-year lease.

  • Rental Scam Alert

    Rental scams are real, so we caution our students to make informed decisions when they decide to rent. How to Protect Yourself from Rental Scams:

    1. Never deal in cash.

      Never pay with cash, or hard-to-trace equivalents such as Bitcoin because it is impossible to track.

    2. Never rent without seeing the property.

      Visit in person or have someone you trust see the rental property before signing a lease or making a payment.

    3. Speak to current tenants.

      Currently occupied units are far less likely to be fraudulent.

    4. Demand a written lease.

      A written lease, that includes the name of the landlord, helps prevent fraud and outlines the rights and responsibilities of both parties.

    5. Be careful of “too-good-to be-true” rental rates.

      Do basic research on current rental prices in the area.
