Housing Options


Set in the heart of Southwestern Ontario, London is the perfect mix of city vibes and scenic nature. Boasting beautiful residential areas and a lively entertainment and culture scene, London has a population of more than 400,000, but still has a ‘Forest City’ community feel. Whether you stay in one of our residence buildings, live with your family in Western Apartments or find a great rental on Richmond Row—London will feel like home.
