Apartments Reservation Housing

Submitting the Housing Reservation form does not create an obligation on your part. Your commitment only becomes official once you pay the required deposit after receiving confirmation that a room or unit has been assigned to you.

When to apply

We accept applications throughout the year. Due to the growing demand for rooms in our houses, we strongly recommend that you apply as soon as possible even if you are not yet admitted to ETS. If you decide not to study at ETS, send us an email to let us know about your decision and we will cancel your request.

Who can rent?

All students who are registered at ETS are eligible to rent a room at our residences. However, priority is given to students who are registered for full-time study. If there are no rooms available when you apply, your name can be placed on a waiting list.


When you apply for residence, you can indicate the type of unit you prefer and the roommate(s) you wish to live with. However, we respond to your requests depending on availability in the residences.

Room assignments

Tenants are not permitted to change room assignments among themselves. If you wish to change rooms, you must submit a request to the ETS Housing Office (Service des entreprises auxiliaires).

Room change requests are granted under certain terms and conditions and at the sole discretion of the Housing Office. A request for a change of room does not mean that it will be granted.

Payment of deposit

You must pay the deposit due after making the reservation and received confirmation.

Leases are available for periods of 4 months, 8 months, or 12 months. A notice of renewal of the lease is sent to each tenant two months before the lease ends. If you receive confirmation of internship outside of Montréal, you can cancel your lease with no penalty, and you can be guaranteed a place in residence when you return by signing a new lease for that time.

Lease Renewal

A student’s lease is automatically terminated when the student completes his or her studies, or when the student is no longer enrolled at ETS.

In any other case, if you wish to terminate your lease early, you must submit a written request for approval by the Housing Office. Please note: even if the request is approved, a minimum penalty equivalent to one month's rent will be applied.
