Pures College’s Student Services department provides a variety of housing services to international students.
Please note the location link below, and explore the student housing resources. We recommend that students planning to take the subway or bus also use the Toronto Transit Trip Planner to help determine the travel time from a rental location to your campus.

When it comes to rental accommodation, including sharing with roommates, we strongly recommend that students review the resources provided by Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB). These include guides for first-time renters and how to handle complaints or disputes because it’s important to know both your rights and responsibilities, including the need for a lease or written agreement.
