Housing Overview

Algonquin College, Waterfront Campus in PembrokeWelcome to the City of Pembroke, the heart of the Ottawa Valley. This webpage will assist you in finding suitable housing while you are studying at the Pembroke Campus of Algonquin College in the Ottawa Valley.

Our new Waterfront Campus in downtown Pembroke opened in the fall of 2012 and has proven to be an exceptional learning environment for students.  The campus is located along the shores of the Ottawa River, but near a built up commercial and residential area, creating opportunities for students to find housing within walking distance of the campus

Community Housing Opportunities

Before the privately-run student residence opened last year, our out-of-town students have always found accommodations within the community.  There are many apartments and houses for rent, as well as rooms in private homes.  

If you are a new tenant, it is important that you are aware of your rights. Take a look at this Information for New Tenants brochure >>

Landlords:  See the bottom of the page for how to list your accommodation.
