The Future of Affordable Student Housing

Who is UTILE ?

UTILE is a non-profit organization that builds and rents new apartments in living environments adapted to the needs of students.

To mark the tenth anniversary of UTILE, director Paul Bourgeault launched in 2022 the documentary Le Printemps UTILE, which offers a perspective on the evolution of the organization, but also on the hazards and conditions of success of a social economy project.


After years of research on the issue, UTILE has observed the extent of student housing needs and the significant lack of affordable student housing in Quebec.
