Apartment Hunting

Our staff is able to give you some tips in making arrangements for staying in an apartment after you arrive. There are excellent opportunities to find apartments downtown and close to CSLI. Some of these are “shared accommodation” (with Canadians or other students), and some are furnished.

Apartment living is not recommended for short-term or low-level English students as it may not give them the best chance to practice their English, especially when sharing with someone from the same country.
