Please be aware that a number of institutions have reported that individuals have been contacting people with listings on their off-campus housing registries and offering to pay the entire year's rent with a cheque or money order.
We would ask that you be cautious with this as in some cases the money order or cheque is fraudulent. Typically what happens is that the individual sends several months worth of rent and almost immediately ask for all but one or two month's rent (deposit) to be returned. They do this in the hope that your bank will not recognize the forgery until the normal clearing process has happened. This would result in you being out the money that you have returned to them.

Full-time Western students are allowed one free listing in one of the following categories: Apartment to Share, House to Share, and Sublets. You must submit your Western student number and the listing must be placed in your name and use your Western e-mail address in the contact section. It may take up to two business days to verify your student status.
We wish to strongly advise you that there is no solicitation permitted on campus. (The Board of Governors' policy number 1.12). This means that landlords are not permitted to come onto campus to entice students to rent their properties nor are they permitted to remain in the Off-Campus listing area or parking lot for that purpose. We reserve the right to suspend or remove any listing for violating policies and procedures.
