Winter semester is right around the corner Ottawa, have you found your perfect apartment yet? We know winter semester can be tough—crawling out of your warm, cozy Netflix cave to brave that cold Ottawa commute to campus. Sitting in class dreaming of being back home in your comfy clothes with a warm blanket.

While we can’t bring campus to you, we can bring you as close to campus as possible! Here are three affordable apartments that are right by Carleton University.

Dow’s Lake Towers

Dow’s Lake Towers is a 5-minute bus ride to Carleton. This means you have a few more moments to scroll through Instagram while staying warm in your bed every morning before class.

You’ll also be a 10-minute walk from the downtown core, which is home to some of Ottawa’s best amenities, shops and restaurants.

If that’s not enough, Dow’s Lake is on the edge of the Rideau Canal. Spend your winter weekends skating on one of the city’s biggest attractions.

Ridgeview Apartments

Ridgeview Apartments offers tenants the perfect combination of work and play, and is another quick, 5-minute commute to Carleton University. In this quiet neighbourhood, you can enjoy being close to campus while keeping away from the city’s distractions when it comes time to hit the books.

You’ll love being close to various parks and trails for when you need to clear your head, as well as many of Ottawa’s major office towers for when that student internship rolls around.

On the weekend, take a break from your schoolwork and check out the shops and restaurants in Preston, Somerset Bank and Glebe Districts, which are all just around the corner!

Riverbank Apartments

It takes less than 20 minutes to walk to Carleton University from Riverbank Apartments—but don’t worry, on the days you’re not feeling the extra exercise, you can also drive in less than 5 minutes.

When midterms roll around and the stress is building up, you may consider some retail therapy to be the perfect cure. If this is the case, you’re in luck: Riverbank Apartments is only a few moments away from Billings Bridge Shopping Centre, as well as The South Keys Shopping district (which has hundreds of stores at your convenience).
