There are a variety of housing options for graduate students while studying at York. Several campus options, as well as Toronto’s many vibrant neighbourhoods and downtown core, help make the graduate student experience a memorable one.
Graduate students who decide to live on York’s Keele or Glendon campuses will be within walking distance of everything they need. York’s Keele campus is like a small city unto itself, complete with shops, sports and fitness facilities, art galleries parks and green spaces, restaurants, cafés and pubs, while York’s Glendon campus offers a more intimate university experience that is immersed in mid-town Toronto’s Lawrence Park neighbourhood.
If you choose to live on campus, York University offers many housing options designed to fit your needs.
Graduate students, students with families, and mature undergraduate students (more than 21-years old) have the option of living on-campus in one of York University’s apartments.
The apartments are conveniently located on the York Keele campus and are within walking distance to classes and all campus amenities. For students living with their family, York’s graduate apartments contain a community playground and the nearby Atkinson Residence offers a daycare facility.
The York University Apartments offer both furnished and unfurnished apartments, and include bachelor, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units. There are also adapted units for students who require wheelchair access or visual alarm.

The many neighbourhoods found in the Downtown and Midtown areas of the city are always popular with York students who chose to live off-campus because of their close proximity to the Yonge-University-Spadina subway line, and an abundance of student-friendly businesses and housing options. This interactive map of Toronto’s neighbourhoods can help you to understand the characteristics of each area.
In addition to online listings from various third parties, a listing of available off-campus housing for York University students can be found at York Federation of Students – Places 4 Students.
