Affordable Housing

Campus Living - Family Housing

The Affordable Housing Rental Program (hereafter Affordable Housing) is designed for lower-to-moderate income households whose Total Household Income (THI) is below the Program Income Limit (PIL).  The household will pay for an affordable rent based on median rents in the private market.

Eligibility Requirements

1. Be a Canadian citizen, landed immigrant, or refugee aged 18 or older.

  • See item "3." below for accepted forms of documentation.

2. Have a Total Household Income below the Program Income Limit:

  • Household Without Children: $56,694
  • Household with Children: $75,592

3. Provide the required income & occupancy documentation:

  • Proof of Income Statement: A printed copy of the most recent Proof of Income Statement "Option C" for each adult. These forms are available from CRA's My Account website here » 
  • Canadian Government-issued Identification: A copy of Canadian-government-issued ID showing name, gender, and birth date must be submitted for any new residents and occupants. (Continuing residents and occupants renewing their current occupancy do not need to resubmit their IDs). Acceptable documentation includes a driver’s license, passport, birth certificate, or Certificate of Indian Status. (This is to maintain compliance with national occupancy standards for each room type.)

4. Comply with Occupancy Standards:

  • A minimum of one and a maximum of two persons may occupy each bedroom. 
  • Parents and children may not occupy the same bedroom.
  • Single persons 18 and over must occupy separate bedrooms.
  • Children age 5 and over may not occupy a bedroom with another person of the opposite sex.

Affordable Housing Application Process

The Applicant is expected to have reviewed the Affordable Housing eligibility criteria and collected the required documentation before applying to Campus Living.

To apply, submit a “Family Housing” application on the StarRez Portal. A $50 application fee is required to start, and affordable Housing documentation is required upon submitting the application. If your documentation is approved, new applicants then pay an application deposit to accept the room offer and reserve the room. (This deposit is not required for current residents renewing their room for an upcoming term.)
