Accommodation for International Students at George Brown College
Toronto has a large housing and rental market that offers numerous accommodation options for students. George Brown College however, does not arrange non-homestay accommodation for students. Estimated costs for privately arranged accommodation may range from $500-$1200 per month, depending on individual living situation and location.
George Brown College's free Housing Services offer support in helping students find off-campus housing. This will be an advantage for you as it generally takes about 2-3 weeks to find an apartment in Toronto. Apartment listings usually go up 1-2 months previous to their availability so if you’re looking to move beginning of September it is usually good to start looking in July.
Housing Cost (your choice):
If you would rather live in the residence of the college, you should sign up early. The George, as the building is known, has the flexibility of 8 month- (Fall/Winter) and 4 Month- (Summer) agreements.

As costs are subject to change, the above figures may be changed at any time without notice by the administration of George Brown College. Please check with your IVC-assigned Visa Counselor or Documentation Officer periodically for any changes.
