Moving to Edmonton to attend Vanguard? Stay in Student Housing!

Student Housing is a service offered to our first-year students to assist in building community and making the transition to college life a little bit easier. SPACE IS LIMITED! Reserve your spot early.

Vanguard College owns and leases several houses within a two block radius of the school, and offers them to students fully furnished, and ready to move in! Basic utilities are provided, including internet, heat, water, electricity, and laundry.

Students gain a sense independence while staying in college-managed housing. Each house accommodates 4-6 students and offers both private and shared rooms to suit various budgets. Students are responsible for their own meals and groceries, and will have a full kitchen to practice their culinary skills with new friends!



Total rent is payable in two installments. Students are not permitted to move in until rent is paid.

Community Housing

If you did not get a spot in Student Housing, do not worry! Or if you prefer to rent an apartment in the neighborhood, we can help you with that through community housing.  There are many rental opportunities in Edmonton with lots in our local neighborhood. We would love to help you find a place that would be most suitable for you. We have a network called the Vanguard Housing Network which allows students to connect with potential roommates and see details about houses or apartments for rent in the area. This group is a closed group on Facebook. If you would like to be a part of it, simply request to join and we will approve your request. Please click the box below to go to the Facebook group.
