OFF-CAMPUS OPTIONS FOR STUDENTS
Student Life has worked with TWUSA, Spartan Athletics, the Alumni Department, and The Parent program to create the following three options for students who were not able to secure a space on campus but still need or desire housing in the Langley or surrounding area.
“TWUSA Off-Campus Housing” (Private Facebook Group)
The group is run by TWUSA and they are excited to be able to connect TWU families and alums who have space in their homes with TWU students looking for a place to live. There will be private basement suites, entire rental homes, and private rooms posted, so check back regularly.
- This will also be a great place to find roommates for those who have found accommodations!
- Since it is a private group, you will need to submit a request to join, but TWUSA will be managing this site closely and is eager to welcome you in. Everyone accepted to the group will be a part of the greater TWU community in one way or another.
Off-Campus Housing website
Anyone looking for renters or roommates for any kind of accommodation (room in a house, basement suite, whole house, etc.) can post on this site. The site isn’t limited to TWU students, so you will need to do your own screening.
Please Note: The contact information you post on the Off-Campus Student Housing website may be indexed by Google and other search engines. If you are concerned about this, please utilize the 'Alternate Contact' feature to display only the information you wish to be made public. We recommend not using your last name or actual street number. This makes your Ad less desirable for scammers to use since they need an actual physical address to send people to. Remember, if it is on the Internet, then it is going to be indexed without notice by other search engines.

Harmony Homestay has a diverse database of homestay families in the local area to be able to provide a variety of options for students when choosing a homestay family. They will work to provide the best possible match for each student and host family.
