If you are looking to rent off campus in Waterloo, there are a variety of companies that you can go to for finding a apartment rental. The company that you choose to go through should be able to provide with a safe and quality place to live in.
The rental service should have places where you can stay that are available for groups and individuals, and should have unfurnished and furnished options. They should also have a maintenance and emergency line if you need it.
Some of the amenities that you should find on at the companies properties are a laundry facility, parking, utilities, lawn and snow maintenance, furniture, and the Internet. They may even have a bus route for your convenience. Some of the places may not be furnished or partially furnished.
