Renting a home

There are many resources for finding both temporary and permanent rental housing around campus. UVic's off-campus housing registry is a great place to start.

The Victoria Times Colonist newspaper provides a link to househunting.ca, where you can search for rental accommodation in Victoria. You can try apartmentsrus and can also place an ad in the Times Colonist under "accommodations wanted" or sign up for classified alerts. Victoria Craigslist and UsedVictoria also provide free online classified listings.

Some property management companies also have their own rental vacancy listings:

Additionally, the Capital Region Housing Corporation builds and manages housing for low and moderate income families, seniors and people with special needs.

For more information on renting a home, the British Columbia Residential Tenancy Branch provides guidelines on security deposits, pet deposits and inspections, repairs and maintenance, dispute resolution and related issues.
