Types of accommodations


  • Renting a house or an apartment


Notre Dame is informed of available houses for rent in the City of Sydney district by local real estate agents or individual owners. Furnished, partially furnished, or unfurnished rental units are available. Rent must be paid in advance, as well as a security deposit equal to one month's rent.


  • Renting a room


There are a limited number of options for this type of lodging. A shared bathroom and social spaces of the house are normally included with a room rental, along with a private bedroom and study area. Typically, utilities, gas, phone, and extra water bills are paid in addition to rent.


  • Sharing with other students


Many students opt to live in a shared house or apartment with their peers. They post notices on student bulletin boards or through the Student Services Office. This arrangement entails having your own bedroom, as well as sharing public areas (kitchen, laundry, living room, and bathroom), as well as housekeeping chores. Share housing can provide low-cost housing, the ability to split expenditures, and the potential to form connections and a social network.
