Welcome to Winnipeg! One of the most affordable cities in Canada, Winnipeg is known for its culturally diverse population, friendly people and four distinctly beautiful seasons. Booth University College (Booth UC) campus is located downtown in the heart of the city, with easy access to public transportation.

Property Management Sites

If you’re planning to study at Booth UC, these resources can help you find accommodations in Winnipeg.

Property management sites work for both parties. For the property owners, they find tenants and provide maintenance, security and contractors. For the tenants, this usually means on-site caretaking and maintenance, and a quick resolution to any difficulties that may arise.

With many properties to choose from, these websites provide search engines that help you narrow down the features that are important to you.

Alternative Rental Options


Homestay programs are designed to act as a home-away-from-home for out-of-province students, offering a safe, economical and supportive living environment. Their programs match students with Winnipeg families who provide them with both a room and meals.

Homestay programs often include a short (two- to four-month) commitment period, making them a great option while students look for more permanent accommodations. Some students choose to stay long-term, fitting in as one of the family members.

Here are some homestay options.

Canada Homestay Network

Since 1995, the Canada Homestay Network, a family-run, non-profit society, has helped tens of thousands of students find a home-away-from-home in Canada. Students receive a room and three meals per day, plus all of the added benefits of living with a Winnipeg family. Homes are located close to public transportation, with no longer than a 45-minute (often shorter) bus ride to our campus.

Polar Trails Homestay Program

Polar Trails is Winnipeg’s longest-serving locally based homestay agency, supporting international students for over 20 years. They offer short- and long-term homestay options, and all host families are carefully screened and matched with students to provide the best supportive learning environment possible. 


The University of Winnipeg Downtown Hostel

Stays only between two and 30 days. See the University of Winnipeg Downtown Hostel website for more information.

La Cabane Guesthouse

La Cabana Guesthouse is located in Winnipeg’s French quarter, Saint Boniface, a neighbourhood brimming with culture and Manitoban history. It is within walking distance to cafes, restaurants and parks, and is a short bus ride from the downtown area where Booth UC is located.

Other University Accommodations

University of Winnipeg Campus Living Accommodations

Directly across the street from Booth UC is the University of Winnipeg (U of W), one of seven public post-secondary schools in the province.

Our students are welcome to apply to live in one of the U of W campus residences. You must show proof of enrolment at Booth UC (available through the Populi student information system or the registrar’s office). The U of W may request a copy of your identification card and/or course registration.

University of Winnipeg Renewal Corporation (UWRC)

The University of Winnipeg Community Renewal Corporation is committed to sparking revival in downtown Winnipeg. They focus on recognizing and responding to local needs, challenges and opportunities to help create thriving and sustainable urban university and downtown communities. Their projects include several different housing initiatives geared toward university student needs in the downtown Winnipeg area.
