Ontario is one of the largest of Canada’s ten provinces, and is home to some of the country’s most famous cities – including its most populous, Toronto, and its capital, Ottawa, both of which have a number of highly regarded universities. For this reason Ontario is a popular destination for students looking to study overseas.
Toronto and Ottawa are the main student hubs of Ontario, and as can be expected from large cities they offer a dynamic student experience. From browsing the many museums of Ottawa to relaxed student living in downtown Toronto, deciding to study a degree in Ontario is a decision you won’t regret.

Accommodation and living costsIf you live on campus you will benefit from being very close to the lecture halls, and all your bills and utilities will be included in your rent. You will live with other students, usually in a shared flat. Depending on your choices and the amount you want to pay you may share a double room.
If you decide to live off campus in a shared flat or house it is likely you will be responsible for paying utilities and bills yourself. The most popular area for students to live is The Annex, which is downtown and very close to the University of Toronto. The Annex has a number of shops, restaurants and entertainment venues and a lively social scene.
Ontario Student Housing and Ontario Student Rentals will be able to help you find somewhere to live off campus while you are on your undergraduate degree, if this is what you choose.
