Utilities are not included in the rent and are to be covered by the resident. At University Studios, as we only accommodate single-occupancy (one resident per unit), this amount is covered entirely by the resident. At University Towns, as there are 3-people in a suite, this amount is to be split between the 3 residents.

Our leases are one full-year in length, beginning in September, and ending in August the following year.
You can choose to renew for another fixed term one year lease, or move to a month to month lease. A fixed-term tenancy means you have an agreement to live in a unit for at least a certain length of time. The agreement is called the lease, and the length of time is called the term. In our case, month to month means after August 31st if you would like to leave you will need to provide a written 60 days’ notice. You do not have to sign an extension lease but if you would like to be on a fixed lease we can provide you with one.
You can break your lease early if you fall under these conditions:
Our rental amounts include: Fully furnished units (bed, dresser, closets, private bathrooms, kitchenettes, etc), WiFi service, and free access to the community amenities (gym, study rooms, etc).
The rent for a unit can be increased 12 months after a resident first moved in or 12 months since the resident’s last rent increase. The rent increase guideline is based on the Ontario Consumer Price Index (CPI), which is calculated monthly by Statistics Canada. The 2020 increase is 2.20%
An N11 is a document you sign to officially end your tenancy with Varsity at the end of your fixed term lease, or once 60 days notice have been given if you are on a month-to-month lease.
Please note, by signing an N11 document (Mutual Notice to Terminate) you give Varsity the right to lease out your unit on the date agreed upon in your N11.
