Halifax students struggle to find housing


Students in Halifax recently spoke to CTV News about their struggles to find housing. The Halifax Partnership reports that enrolment in Halifax’s six universities has grown by 2.4% from 2020-2021, which in turn is creating stress on housing. “We’ve never seen student housing as an issue, influence budget conversation, enrolment conversations and strategy conversations to the extent that they are right now,” said Dalhousie University Student Union President Aparna Mohan, who said that the student’s union is “dealing with some students in very precarious housing situations.” While some students have found housing with roommates or have chosen to live with parents, other senior students hope to return to residence. CTV News highlighted some of the recent investments in student housing at Nova Scotia Community College and Cape Breton University.
