QUIC Housing Listings
Except for first and last month’s rent, it is illegal for a landlord to ask you to pay more than one month’s rent at a time.
A landlord may ask you to pay for your keys only if you lose them, but this cannot be more than the actual cost of the keys. All other deposits are illegal (e.g. cost of appliances or curtains, a damage deposit in addition to last month’s rent, application fee).
Types of Listings
Apartments and Houses

- You rent a bedroom in a house or apartment and share the kitchen, common rooms, bathroom/toilet with other students/tenants.
Room In a Private Home
- You rent a bedroom in a landlord’s home. Students and workers need to be aware that the standard laws regarding landlords and tenants do not apply to a situation where the tenants live with, and share, the household with the landlords or homeowners. Before students agree to this type of living arrangement we strongly recommend they speak with the Student Community Relations office regarding their rights and responsibilities.
