Listing Service FAQs

Before becoming a landlord, we've outlined tips and information to get you started.

Why list with us?

There are approximately 22,000 students at the University of Waterloo who live in the Waterloo region.

As a department at the University of Waterloo, students know that all listings on the Off-Campus Housing listing service are reviewed and approved by the Off-Campus Housing staff before being posted online and are therefore trustworthy.

Unlike many other listing websites, we deal directly with students, faculty and staff at the University of Waterloo. We can offer information on the best time to post an ad and suggestions to get the most responses.

Please note: The Off-Campus Housing listing site is not restricted to students at the University of Waterloo. It is accessible and open for viewing by the general public.

Furthermore, we do not endorse or recommend any specific landlords, properties, or property management companies. We do not offer special treatment to anyone.
