Wilfried Laurier University
3.8/5
Housing
Type of housing: With a family
Arranged by: Independently - I had no other choice
If returning, I would choose: On campus
Why?
Most of the exchange students lives on campus or close to the university. Since I lived about 30 minutes from the university I had a certain disadvantage in using available facilities such as the library, computer labs, etc. Moreover it was pretty hard to arrange any meetings with university mates since they were all living on campus.

The university provides a couple of appartments in residences on the campus site. Usually you'll share the appartment with up to 3 room mates. Kitchen, bath room, etc. is included. In case the ran out of available appartments, the university staff helps students finding an accomodation.

Housing
Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: On campus
Why?
- proximity to university, especially when you don't have a car - it allowed me to live with other foreign students - the residence comission organizes lots of events (ski trips, sports, bbqs) - the residence house was big, though a little bit dirty when we checked in - Laurier Place residence is good, because you have lots of room outside for events

being international you can both stay at Bricker residence or Laurier Place - bricker is a 10 story building; internationals stay on 9 and 8; it's cool because you have lots of people around you, international and first year; but you can't make much noise and have to come downstairs to the first floor to open the door, it's their policy; the Don's are awesome, especially Bo, but I think she is leaving this year - I stayed at Laurier Place, which are town houses on campus; you have more liberty and room than in Bricker; and it's some bucks cheaper

Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Home university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
Provided it was walking distance from campus it would still allow me to be "close enough" but also giving me some distance should I choose.

It was shared accommodation between two universities so there were a good mix of people. There were a lot of exchange students which proved a great place to meet new people who are all int the same boat.

5.0/5
Housing
Type of housing: Off-camus residence
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: Off-campus residence
Why?
It is good to be off-campus because you are more mixed with the canadian people and you don't have to live with first year students. The residence is a good choice because it has a convivial atmosphere.

On campus, the housing seems pretty good though I have never lived there. the problem is that there are too many international students and first years there.
