Likehome.info is now live, launched at the occasion of Concordia’s Housing Fair. This site was developed for all the students of Montreal, and we hope they will find all the information they could use here. By the way, if you are studying elsewhere in Quebec you will likely find a lot of the information to be of some use – everything but the map, likely!
This project was born out of UTILE’s 2014 survey to McGill, Concordia and UQAM students, which showed that students very often pay more on average than the rest of the population for their rent. This is especially true in some neighborhoods and for certain groups – out-of-province students, mainly.
Through discussions with CSU’s HOJO team, UTILE learned that simply giving better access to relevant and clear information on student housing could solve a lot of students’ housing problems. The two organizations collaborated to produce Likehome.info, a central platform that gives access to existing ressources.
Did you spot something wrong on the site? Would you like to help us developing or promoting it? Feel free to get in touch!
