Rooms for Rent in Oshawa

You can live off campus but receive all the benefits of being on campus with our student rentals. Oshawa students attending Ontario Tech University or Durham College will live just a few minutes away from campus when they choose 17Hundred.

Reduce Your Commute Time

Many students would prefer to live off campus, but a major concern is the longer commute time when considering rooms for rent. Oshawa students who live in our furnished suites have only a short journey to Ontario Tech U and Durham College campus, whether they walk, bike, or travel by car. This reduces your risk of being late to class and gives you more time for studying – and socializing!

Off-Campus Rooms for Rent with On-Campus Perks

Just like living on campus, when you rent a room from 17Hundred, you will receive an all-inclusive living space. There are laundry facilities on site, and utilities such as electricity, water, gas, and Internet are all included in the rent. You can also rest assured that the building is completely secure, as access requires a key card.

Another feature we have that is similar to living on campus is a place to study. If you’d prefer to study outside your room, there’s no need to head to campus to use the library. We have several study lounges, all with Internet access. The private lounges are perfect for studying alone, whereas the group lounges are ideal for working on a project with others.

Advantages of Living Off Campus

At the same time, 17Hundred brings you all the advantages of living off campus. For one, you will be able to choose how many other people you live with. You have the option of sharing a suite with between one and four other students. Plus, we won’t just pair you with anyone — we use your profile to match you with people who have similar social and study habits, interests, and hobbies.

If you already have friends at university and want to share with them, you can make a request. We only accept mutual requests, meaning that friends will need to name each other to share an apartment.

Furthermore, although most of our suites are furnished, you can request an unfurnished room if you’d prefer to bring your own things. You can also ask for a unit with a private balcony. Whatever you choose, you will receive an apartment with a bedroom, kitchen, living room, and at least one shared bathroom. All of our suites are fully carpeted and have plenty of storage in the kitchen and bathroom.

How Our Student Rentals Are Different

Our suites are also better than regular apartments in many ways. For example, you will sign a lease as an individual, which means you don’t need to worry about your roommates paying their share of the rent and utilities.

Another benefit is our professional maintenance and management staff, who are ready to help in any situation. Speak to someone at the front desk, file a maintenance request or call our dedicated emergency number. We’re here for you!

Modern Amenities

Typically, rooms for rent offer a living space but little else. Not our suites! Need to relax after a long day? We have a theatre room and a recreation centre, complete with billiard table, foosball, and ping pong. We also help you stay fit, which is key to doing well in university — we have a 24-hour fitness centre and yoga room. Finally, we offer bike storage and parking on site.

If you’re looking to gain all the advantages of student rentals without any of the downsides of living on campus, 17Hundred is the place for you. Our rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Contact us now to secure your suite.
