General Information About Renting Accommodations

Things to remember when choosing accommodations:

Identifying the right rental option

There are a few decisions you will need to make before you start hunting for a place to live while you are in college:

Start your search early and be prepared to spend time looking for a place to live. We receive new listings regularly, so check our list frequently. It may take longer than you expect to find a place to live so be sure to make arrangements for temporary accommodation (e.g. friends, relatives or parents’ friends).

We recommend that you check the local newspapers for more places to rent, especially if you are searching for an apartment. We may be able to provide you with more detailed information on the accommodations listed and will do our best to answer and address any questions or concerns you may have.

Ask lots of questions. Check out the premises thoroughly. After all, it will be your home during your time at Holland College.

Do not be afraid to ask questions! The landlord should be more than willing to answer your queries. Any inadequacies with a property should be discussed with the landlord before a binding agreement is reached. Find out your rights and obligations as a tenant on the website for the Office of the Director of Residential Rental Property

Check the condition of the property before you commit to renting it:
