Looking for a roommate

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I am applying for a 2-person room in residence and I am wondering if anyone would be interested in being my roommate!

I think it would be helpful for the two of us if we had a roommate that isn't bothersome and shares the same faculty. If anyone is open to this idea and would like to get to know me, please send me a pm!

A handful of us in my first-year signed up for 1-bedroom apartments and then had them move us into two-bedroom apartments that we had to ourselves. Not sure if they still do it, but 12/10 would recommend doing again.

Hey, I will be dealing with this issue in June/July most likely. What's the best way to go about finding a good roommate in the Faculty? Facebook groups, perhaps?

Any reason why you're looking to sign a lease by July 1 vs. August or Sept 1?

Yes because I might be working in another city for summer 1L. So I would rather not be paying for a lease if I am living somewhere else. I also don't want to be scrambling last minute to get a good place when every other student is doing the same, as I assume as it gets closer to September the better leases will be taken. I think I might just sign a lease for a 2bdr and post in the FB group looking for a roomate.

I spoke to a friend about this who is a UofC law student. They told me the Calgary real estate market is fairly easy to navigate last minute. 

Also, doesn't UofC have a great 1L recruiting cycle for Calgary jobs? I'm trying to decide when to get a lease as well

 That's good to know. And yes I believe Calgary's 1L recruiting cycle is good, but I am ideally looking to work in either Vancouver or Toronto over the summers.

You should be aware that Vancouver firms rarely, if ever,  hire 1L summer students.

    • I added up U of T's tuition fees in each year ($38,233.45 for 1L, $38,183.45 for each of 2 and 3L), and then subtracted the sum of UBC's tuition ($12,639.36 for 1L and $11,849.40 for each of 2 and 3L).  In fairness, I did miss UBC's student fees, which are "approximately $1,100 per year for J.D. students", so I guess that drops the price difference to $74,962.19.
    • That is what mine has been for months as well. 
    • Here is some more information that I just learned from calling a few schools, for anyone interested in this topic and reading this thread.  When determining cGPA, all ontario schools go by what OLSAS provides, and OLSAS counts all courses taken at an undergraduate level regardless of whether they are counting towards a degree or not. How schools look at L2 is internal and possibly different for each school.  Schools outside of Ontario because they dont go through OLSAS probably also have their own way of looking at cGPA and L2.
    • How did you get to 78,262? I assumed the UofT tuition to be $33,300 and UBC tuition to be $12000. On-campus UBC residence seems to be slightly more expensive compared to grad house at UofT
