Property Owner and Rentor Testimonials

"Having Chelsea come out to see our property and to endorse us as a “verified” listing was a great experience. She took the time to appreciate the unique features of our listing and to help us find a student who was the perfect match! Happy owners + happy students = happy community."

– Marilyn Carey

"During the school year, our property tends to slow down and during this time we offer safe and secure drive-up units to our friends at UPEI Off-Campus Housing at affordable rates. Chelsea and her team really take the time to ensure the property is right for students and think of all the small details that make the process easy for all involved. Through this program, we have learned a ton about UPEI, Off-Campus Housing, and about the countless individuals from all over the world who have stayed with us. Not only has this been a great experience for the business, but it has been an even more magical experience for our staff in making lifelong friends along the way. This is a program that we will never stop taking part in and will continue to work alongside Off-Campus Housing to provide safe, secure, and affordable housing for UPEI students."

This unprecedented practise demonstrates UPEI is committed to assisting students reach their full potential in both the classroom and community. Consequently, prospective students can confidentially hold UPEI in high esteem as their primary choice for higher learning. It was a pleasure to meet you.

"We have always had more dorm rooms at our school than we have needed for our own purposes, (most of our students are local or online), and for years we have had trouble finding students to live in all the extra dorms. Since we first listed with the UPEI off-campus housing program, we have filled our residence to capacity every year. Through this program, we have been able to meet a lot of very interesting people from all around the world, and as a result have seen a really unique living experience develop at Maritime Christian College that has grown our applications for residence further, just through word of mouth. I cannot say enough good things about the UPEI Off-Campus housing program!"

"Recently, we had the pleasure of working with the UPEI Off-Campus Housing Department. As a result of their keen knowledge and assistance with the development of our ad, we were successful in the placement of a PhD student and her spouse. Within a very short period of time, a total of 12 applicants reached out and we made a decision based on the insight from Chelsea and our needs. A high recommendation is in order regarding this service offered by UPEI."

– Cara Steele

"We have had the opportunity to work with the UPEI off-campus housing over the last two school years. During this time they have assisted in the process of listing the property, determining compatibility with students, and check-ins throughout the year. Through their efforts we have been able to provide high-quality housing for students and positively affected their university experience."

"I have used the Off-Campus Housing resource to fill any condos and apartments that I have had for rent and have had great experience. We even have the pleasure of hosting a student in our home as well. Chelsea, the housing coordinator, is always super to deal with and is always available to help get your accommodations posted for you. The Off-Campus Housing resource is a very simple and well-organized tool. I will continue to work with them to find quality and safe accommodations for their students. If you are thinking of hosting a student(s) contact any of their friendly staff for more details. I highly recommend them."

"You have helped us advertise effectively to many potential tenants over the past year. Some of these bright young people from around the world have lived in our properties and have become friends.

The process of listing was simple, you helped us, with care, throughout the season. We sincerely appreciate your efforts and we hope that in working together in the future we can continue to help UPEI students find safe, affordable housing at various price points to meet their needs."
