Waterloo, ON students face apartment move-in delays

September 6, 2017

Many students arriving in Waterloo to begin the academic year have learned that their apartments are not move-in ready. CBC reports that as of last Thursday, only 799 of 2,289 bedrooms expected to open this fall had been approved for occupancy. “It's chaotic already starting school in a new city for the first time, and then on top of it, I don't even have a place to live,” said Charlotte Hings, a tenant at Waterloo's TheHub apartment complex. Hings says that she received word of the issue only four days before her move-in date. The Federation of Students at University of Waterloo has reportedly approached the Waterloo Region Community Legal Services (WRCLS) to host a presentation for students on legal options and solutions for tenants for companies not meeting deadlines. CBC | Waterloo Region Record
