Hey everyone! I hope you all had an amazing weekend and getting back into that school routine hasn’t been too difficult:P Hopefully a lot of you have been sending in your applications for Brock (they’re due this Wednesday!) and have even started thinking about where you want to live in your first year.

I decided to blog about this since some of my current housemates will be moving out next year and my roommate and fellow blogger Jessica and I have been looking for some new housemates to move in with us. It got me thinking about how most students living in residence this time of year are also looking for places to live during their second, third or even fourth year. It’s important to remember that residence isn’t for everyone, so if you feel that you would be more comfortable living off-campus, then do not fret because there are lots of great off-campus housing options that are available to Brock students.

One place to go to check out off-campus housing, would be the Brock Off-Campus Living page on the Brock website. They have tons of listings from landlords all over the St. Catharines and Thorold area, and also listings from other students who may be looking for some housemates for the next year. One question we often get about student housing is whether there are a lot of places to live in the area, and the answer is YES! There is actually a surplus of student houses in the St. Catharines/Thorold area, so you can always find a place that suits you.

You can also check out the Brock Off-Campus Living office if you come to visit Brock if you’re looking for more information on things like rent costs, what kinds of questions you should be asking potential landlords or any other questions you may have about the housing rental process.

Feel free to leave any questions you may have for me about living off-campus too!:)

About Katelyn

Hey everyone! My name’s Katelyn and I’m in my fourth year of the concurrent education program here at Brock at the Junior/Intermediate level with a teachable in French. I have always had a passion for working with children, so I knew that the Con Ed program here at Brock was the perfect fit for me! After I finish my five years here, I hope to work as a French teacher in an elementary school. I also hope to have the opportunity to teach in another country, since I love to travel and experience new places and cultures. I grew up in Kitchener, Ontario, but have been fortunate enough to call St. Catharines my home for the past three years and I look forward to what sorts of adventures I will get up to during my last year of undergraduate studies here. This is also my third year as a Campus Experience Coordinator, so hopefully I can answer any questions you may have about being a university student!
