Baie-Comeau, UoGuelph explore new housing options for students


New housing options are in the works for students at Cégep de Baie-Comeau and the University of Guelph. Baie-Comeau and the Office d’habitation de Manicouagan (OHM) have partnered to provide more housing options to cégep students coming from outside of the region. The OHM will offer six three-bedroom apartments, which will be furnished through financial contributions from the cégep’s foundation and student association. In Guelph, the University of Guelph is reportedly interested in leasing a Days Inn hotel property for use as a residence. A City of Guelph committee will be reviewing the developers’ request to transform the 86-room hotel into a student residence. According to Guelph Today, the developers for the property are also looking to construct a housing project at another site down the road that would bring an additional 532 residential units to the area.
