Housing for International Students

All students must arrange their own accommodations, though we can provide some support and advice.  

On-Campus Housing  

Our on-campus Residence offers a wide range of accommodations options. Whether you're looking to meet new friends, stay in a quiet place on your own or need a bit of extra space for you, we've got you covered. International students interested in living on campus should note this on their application.  

Off-Campus Housing  

If you're looking for off-campus housing, check out our Students' Association Off-Campus Housing Directory.   


Canada Homestay Network (CHN) manages Homestay for Red Deer Polytechnic. CHN provides international students with warm and welcoming homestays and related custodianship services so they feel well supported during their program of study in Canada. Please visit their website for more information on this option and to complete an International Student Homestay Application.

Short-Term Accommodations  

Incoming international students who require short-term accommodations while they make permanent housing arrangements are encouraged to consider the following options:  

  • Studio residence units provide a modern guest experience situated in our newest residence building on our main campus. This space provides in-suite amenities to support individual travelers to large groups. Each unit comes equipped with your own kitchenette, bathroom and desk space.  

Located conveniently close to the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre, this accommodation option is great for parents, athletes and general visitors to our institution and to our region.
