U-Eight provides an environment that helps students thrive. At U-Eight, students will be able to create their own welcoming living space and have the luxury of choosing their own roommate. Often times, students have roommates chosen for them, which can make for a stressful living environment and can hinder students’ academic and personal health success. Additionally, living at U-Eight means your son or daughter won’t have to move in and out on tight deadlines, or over the holidays
Investing in your Family’s Success
Owning a home at U-Eight is not only a great way to support your son or daughter’s success, but it also makes financial sense for your family. Paying for housing is inevitable while your son or daughter attends university, so why not put your monthly payments towards owning a home? Whether you decide to sell your home at U-Eight once your son or daughter graduates or continue to rent to new students, you can be confident in your investment.
Secure Living at U-Eight
Parents of students living at U-Eight can rest easy knowing that their child is living in a fully secured, brightly lit building.
Safety is paramount at U-Eight and students will feel safe with most of the parking in a secure underground parkade, and FOB access for secure entry into the building’s lobby.
