uWindsor students to get more off-campus housing

July 23, 2013

Students in Windsor will soon have another option for student housing, as plans to convert the Riverside Inn into student housing have been announced. The hotel recently changed ownership, and the new owners have contracted a company to oversee the student housing conversion and rental arrangements. The site will offer “luxury” student housing, with bar fridges, microwaves, and vanity units in each room, with single occupancy rooms renting for $745/month, and double occupancy rooms for $425/month per person. The new residence will offer amenities such as a pool, fitness room, and common areas, and rental fees will include all utilities, internet, basic cable, and a bus pass. The site is located right across from the downtown campus of the University of Windsor, and is near the bus station. Students will be able to move in as of this September. Windsor Star
