Four Universities - Affordable Housing StudentDwellTO Project

In 2015-2016, the presidents of the four Toronto universities funded and collaborated on the project StudentMoveTO in order to develop the first-ever comprehensive survey of university student travel behavior, trends and needs across seven campuses in the GTA.

The four presidents’ second collaborative initiative is now underway and addresses questions around housing affordability and access to affordable housing for students, a challenge that has by all accounts reached a crisis point in the Toronto region.

Below are the news releases on the project from each institution. Also attached is the updated description of the initiative.
