Off-Campus Living

Students at Sydney Boardwalk

As the largest urban area on Cape Breton and the island’s historical capital, Sydney is the perfect mix of metropolitan charm and down home hospitality. As with many Nova Scotian communities on the ocean, the heart of Sydney is its waterfront. On a warm, summer evening it’s a great place to go for a walk, stop to watch to a busker and to watch ships in the harbour. Along the way, be sure to get your photo taken beside the world’s largest fiddle, built in recognition of Cape Breton’s musical talent.

 

The Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) offers a Housing Market Information Portal that provides free, easy-to-use access to the latest housing market data for Canada. A PDF copy of Cape Breton’s Primary Market Rental Statistics is also available. You may also want to reference Key Housing Terms.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to the Off-Campus Housing Coordinator.
