Frequently Asked Questions
Take a look at some of our frequently asked questions. Contact our Housing Office at anytime with your questions or to begin working with us to rent to Sault College students.
- How much should rent be for a single room?
Most students expect to pay between $400-$600/month depending on factors like the location, size of the room, amenities provided and if utilities and internet are included.
- How many students can reasonably occupy a single room?
While we understand a single room is for one student, we encourage landlords to reassess the size of the room to decide if it allows for an additional bed. This can allow the rent for each student in one room to be lower and will support costs for the student as they can split costs with another student.
Another option to support accommodating two students in one room would be to furnish the room with bunk beds.
Keep in mind, the maximum number of students that are allowed to share one bathroom is four. This also helps our students manage their schedules and time for school and work.
- What should the cost of rent include?
It is preferred that the cost of rent should include all utilities and Wi-Fi. This helps the student budget accordingly with no surprise costs.
- Does the rental property need to be furnished?
Many students prefer that a rental is furnished with items such as a bed, table/desk, chair, wardrobe area, proper lighting, couch, kitchen table, and appliances including a microwave and toaster. Many of these furnishings allow students to easily move in to a comfortable space for sleeping, studying, eating, and connecting with their roommates.
- Should the rent include parking?
It is preferred that parking is included within the rent price. Parking vehicles on the street will result in parking tickets throughout the winter months. It is recommended for rent to include one parking space per tenant if available.
- What is a reasonable length for the lease agreement?
While students are trying to settle in as they are new to the city and/or country, it is important that short-term agreements (4-8 months) are an option as well as 12-month agreements.
- Does my rental need to be by a bus route?
This is an added benefit for students to have a bus stop nearby for easy access to transportation, but this is something that is beyond your control and is not a requirement.
- I have a rental room or rental house available. Can Sault College assist me to fill the vacancies?
Yes. We have a dedicated team to help you find students for your rentals. Please email email@example.com for assistance.
