Whether you are a landlord or a student, a great place to start is Service New Brunswick's guide to renting in New Brunswick.
For a quick guide to living off campus, check out the Good Neighbours Strong Neighbourhoods brochure. The pamphlet was compiled by the Mayor's Working Committee on Community/University Relations.
If you'll be renting a place this year, a great first step is to check out the Off-Campus Handbook. The handbook covers everything from finding a place to live and your rights and responsibilities, to how to throw a party while maintaining control, so it's a must read for any student living off campus.
If you're moving into a new place, you may also want to consider having a Fire and Life Safety Inspection done if you are concerned about your dwelling. It will be much less of a hassle to have this done early rather than having your place deemed unsafe in the middle of the school year, sending you searching for a new home.
If you're interested in living on campus this year, check out the Residential Life, Campus and Conference Services website, and you should be able to find answers to any questions that you have.
