UNFC, Niagara, SpacesShared partner to bring homesharing option to students


University of Niagara Falls Canada, Niagara College, and SpacesShared have partnered to address the lack of affordable student housing in the Niagara region. Through the SpacesShared online platform, students from the two postsecondary schools will be able to connect with older adults in the region who are interested in homesharing arrangements. Both GUS Canada CEO Cyndi McLeod and Niagara President Sean Kennedy noted the importance of ensuring students have safe, affordable housing options. “The reality is there are so many good homes out there with vacant rooms, and there are many students looking for housing – we just needed an innovator like SpacesShared to connect the dots,” said McLeod.
