There are many housing options available to you as a student at the University of Manitoba. If you’d like to live on campus, visit Student Residences for more information.

If you would like to live off-campus, you have lots of options: houses, apartments, suites and duplexes are available to rent all around Winnipeg at a price to suit almost every budget.  There have been issues with illegal housing practices in the area surrounding the U of M in recent years, however, so click here to educate yourself on this issue. If you are looking for a rental property off-campus, make sure that your residence meets the required standards for housing in Manitoba.  Winnipeg Police Service provides a map of the city with crime statistics if you would like to learn more about the safety of particular neighbourhoods in Winnipeg.  It’s also a good idea to visit the Residential Tenancies Branch for information on your rights as a tenant.
