Student-Residence Buildings

The three buildings listed below are not affiliated with Ryerson, but are located near campus with a substantial number of Ryerson students residing there. These buildings offer more of a traditional residence experience than living in a regular apartment or condo building. Spare is limited and going quickly. Please contact each building directly for further information. 

  1. Parkside Student Residence
  2. Neill Wycik Student Co-Op (reported full - no vacancy)
  3. Campus Common (reported full - no vacancy)

Independent Housing

You may also choose to rent an apartment on your own or with roommates.

We encourage you to be proactive in checking daily for housing opportunities given the competitive Toronto housing market.

We strongly recommend you try to visit each apartment prior to signing a lease.
