It’s April in Ottawa and we know what that means (no – it’s not that we’re one month away from the tulip festival, although we’re excited about that too), it’s time for graduation!
After the cap and gown are off, figuring out your next steps can be hard, especially if you don’t know where you’ll be living yet.
Here are 3 reasons why staying in Ottawa after graduating is the best decision you can make:
Staying in Ottawa after graduating will give you a great taste of work-life balance. The downtown area is full of exciting nightlife, superb restaurants and shopping to enjoy after a day at work. Ottawa also has one of the highest percentages of parks to residents in Canada, so if you haven’t enjoyed this city in the warm weather yet – now is your chance!
Living in the Elgin Square Apartments or any of our other downtown locations will offer you just that. Residing in the heart of downtown Ottawa gives you the convenience of being able to walk anywhere – to work, to meet a friend for drinks in a cool restaurant nearby, or simply to come home to chill out in your apartment with some Netflix and snacks.
Close to opportunity
As the country’s capital, Ottawa is an exciting place to live. Being an economically stable, government based city means that there are a wide variety of jobs available, needing an assortment of different skills. Lot’s of opportunity for new grads!
Are you interested in the job opportunities but don’t want to live right downtown? The Rideau Terrace apartments are located on the border of downtown Ottawa, in the coveted Lindenlea-New Edinburgh neighbourhood that will give you that small town, community feel, right next to the city. The apartments are only a short distance away from the Byward market, Rideau Centre and all the opportunities downtown Ottawa offers.
The student life can be a tough one, especially when it comes to the amount of debt you end up with. Living in Ottawa offers you the opportunity to live comfortably and affordably.
Keep in mind that roommates aren’t reserved for your university years! Cut your living costs in half by sharing an apartment with a roommate. This can also help make the daunting transition from student life to reality a little bit easier.
If you’re set on living on your own but want something within your budget, try renting a studio apartment. There are lots of tips and tricks to turn any small space into a sanctuary. If you don't believe us check out our previous blog on bachelor apartment essentials here.
