Your Housing Search
To find a place that works for them, students use local advertisements, search engines, and social media tools. Queen’s University International Centre (QUIC) offers information on current resources for students to use in their search for off-campus housing. Below you will find links to provide clarity around housing terms, and what to be aware of before contracting a rental property. Once students locate a rental place of interest, they often utilize the services of Queen’s Student Community Relations office in Mitchell Hall (located next to QUIC) that offers informative review of lease documents, and individual advising with expertise in rental and landlord issues.
Temporary and Short Stay Options – for first few nights upon your arrival to Kingston.

To reduce the chance of fraud please review How to Avoid Being Scammed. It is always a good practice to be vigilant and verify all information when searching for a rental online, especially if you have been asked to pay any deposits. Prior to wiring funds from overseas or making payments of any kind, please take time to talk to the other party in person and carefully verify who they are and what are they offering; it is essential that you take time to review the information provided by Queen’s University Student Community Relations unit; if in doubt, please ask for an advice. The QUIC International Student Advisors can be reached by email or by telephone at 001.613.533.2604.
