VIU Residence is pleased to announce that we have partnered with Places4Students to provide VIU students with off-campus rental listings. 

Places4Students is a leading, online listing service which specializes in providing rental housing options for students.

All their listings are in real-time; accessible 24/7; descriptive with photos, amenity icons, floor plans and include mapping from each rental property to campus; Smart Search features and much more!

Since they began in 2003, has helped over 79,000 landlords and property management companies advertise their housing vacancies to students effectively. More importantly, their service is completely focused on meeting the individual needs of each college or university and all of their services are provided to students for FREE.
