That’s right Ottawa – it’s time to start thinking about back to school. Soon you’ll be replacing your late-night Netflix binges with studying all-nighters. 

There are a few things you can do to make your student life better, though, and one of these is living close to your campus. Living close to your school is vital when it comes to making it to class on time, cramming in those last-minute library sessions, and being close to your favourite study-buddies at all times.

Here are a few apartments that are right by the Ottawa campuses!
