Rental rates vary by floor and lease term. Chat with a VEDA rental agent for more information (rent@vedaliving.ca). Rent is paid on the 1st day of each month. When paid on time, rent includes utilities, unlimited Internet, and access to available amenities.

Yes, the price of rent includes a utility credit of $50. This covers your monthly hydro, water/sewer, gas, water heater rental, furniture and Internet. As stated in our lease, if rent is not paid on time a $50 charge will be applied. If you consistently use more than $50/month in utilities, you will be charged the difference. (Note: unless using excessive hydro due to additional appliances, or water due to leaving taps/toilets running without reporting them as a maintenance issue, students very rarely exceed the $50 monthly utilities credit, and are given warnings prior to being charged extra.)

Yes, you can sublet your room, in accordance with the lease. Please note, you are still the tenant and you are now acting as the “sub-landlord” for your tenant. You still pay rent to the Landlord and you are responsible for collecting rent from “your tenant”. Reminder: our suites are single-occupancy only. Sublet arrangements must be 1 month or longer.

Veda is designed with your safety in mind. There is access control at each exterior door & amenity space for tenants. There is also your own personal key code to your private suite. Security cameras are installed throughout the building.
