Joynet Realty’s Off-Campus Investment Project is focusing on investing in five famous Universities — University of Toronto, Queen’s University, McMaster University, Western University and Windsor University, and expecting to expand in the future.

University of Windsor

The University of Windsor (WU or UWindsor) is a public comprehensive research university and the southernmost university in Canada. UWindsor is located near the busy port of entry to the United States. You are only required to cross the Ambassador Bridge to the opposite side of the Detroit River, and eventually you can reach the American city of Detroit in no more than 10 minutes. The teaching level of computer science and engineering disciplines at the University of Windsor ranks among the top in Canada.

Windsor is located in southwestern Ontario and is known as the “Canada’s Automotive Industry Capital”. It is also home to Canada’s three largest auto manufacturing companies and hundreds of high-tech companies. It faces Detroit, Michigan, USA and is connected to it by bridges and tunnels. It forms part of the Detroit-Windsor region and is known as the southernmost city in Canada.

There are currently more than 16,000 students at the University of Windsor. The rent for a single room near the university ranges between $500 and $700. The one-bedroom apartment starts from $1100 to $1300, and $1200-$1600 for a two-bedroom apartment.

University of Toronto

The University of Toronto is a public research university in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, located on the grounds that surround Queen’s Park. The other two campuses are located at Scarborough and Mississauga. The University of Toronto was founded by royal charter in 1827 as King’s College, the first institution of higher learning in Upper Canada.

Currently, the number of students in the university is more than 67,000, and its Chinese students account for 77% of international students. Therefore, the demand for rental housing around the school is constantly increasing and the rental prices remain at the high level.

The St. George campus is the largest and most comprehensive campus of the University of Toronto, where most students study and live there. The diverse transportation around the campus is super convenience, including TTC buses, trams, and subways. At present, the average rental price of apartments around the campus is approximately $1600-$1800 per month for an unfurnished, one-bedroom and one-bathroom apartment. On the other hand, a fully furnished one-bedroom and one-bathroom apartment costs around $2500-$2700 per month. Additionally, the average price of a two-bedrooms apartment is around $3000 per month.

McMaster University

McMaster University (McMaster or Mac) is a public research university in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. The main campus is about an hour’s drive from Toronto, Niagara Falls and the U.S. border city of Buffalo, New York.

Its main campus is located in Hamilton, which is the ninth largest city in Canada and one of the southernmost cities in Canada. Hamilton is a safe, friendly, clean and beautiful city that provides students with a good learning, living and working environment.

The number of new enrollments in the school each year has been increasing compared with previous years, and the number of international students is growing rapidly in the past few years. The student dormitory provided by the school can no longer meet the housing needs of newly enrolled students, and thus, a large number of international students need to choose off-campus rental housing. The average price for renting a single room in a house off-campus is about $500-$600 per month. The monthly rent for an ordinary independent house is around $2500-$2800.

Queens’ University
