If students are looking for temporary housing until they can secure a rental, there are a number of short term accommodations webpages, and some local hotels provide students with a special UW pricing which was mainly for quarantining, but in some cases has been extended to a non-Covid stay while the student finds more permanent housing.

It is highly recommended that students review the Off-Campus Housing website because it is full of helpful tips as scams have been increasingly prevalent in the KW region. https://uwaterloo.ca/off-campus-housing/ (Scroll down the webpage to see the drop down menu of resources).
Another great resource for students is the Off Campus Community which is a WUSA service for first and upper-year students living off campus.
