You may be offered a choice of rooms within a house but the office will likely select a house and room for you based on availability.

It is difficult to say how many people you will be living with but they will most likely be students studying or working in Kingston for the summer. We try to group people together in houses so that you can meet new people and feel safe and comfortable.

Your house may come equipped with internet – this will depend on how many current members are staying in the house over the summer months. You may contact the office and ask to be put in contact with the current members of the house you will move into, in order to check into the internet situation prior to your arrival.

You will sign what is called a ‘Summer Occupancy Agreement’, which is similar to a lease. This contract will outline that you are required to keep your room and house in good condition and that you are to peacefully cohabitate with your housemates throughout the length of your stay.

For summer rentals we require post dated checks, debit payments or e-transfers  for each month you will live in co-op.
