Please Note: Neither SFU or SFU Residence and Housing assumes any responsibility for agreements made between the student and the landlord. We do NOT screen, inspect, warrant or approve any landlord, student or accommodation provided through the above noted service. As well, we highly recommend that all students familiarize themselves with the BC Tenancy Act before you commit yourself to renting an apartment/suite/room. Finally, we would highly recommend that you educate yourself in identifying potential rental scams, which you may find while looking for off-campus housing.  To assist you, please read our "How Can I Spot and Avoid Rental Scams?" document.
