All candidates should submit their applications online on the “available apartments” form. Once applications are received, the UTILE team will follow up to verify admissibility according to the selection policy criteria. Priority for selection of apartments will be allocated according to the order of reception, following the completion of the application review.
During the reviewing process, priority is given to university students because of the fiscal nature of the projects.
Proof of study as well as proof of ability to pay the rent of the desired apartment will be requested with the submission of your application. In addition to financial need, financial viability will also be considered. If it appears that the rent represents more than 50% of your annual income, UTILE will request additional documents to support your application, such as a co-signer for your lease. For example, an applicant with lack of rental history or insufficient income to suggest financial viability should be supported by a guarantor.
For group applicants, all of the roommates are solidarily responsible for the lease. As such, all members of the household should illustrate their capacity to pay for the entirety of the desired apartment.
