Facilities at Your Durham College Housing

Although our student housing is just a few minutes away from Durham College, we’ve made it convenient for residents to focus on their studies without having to leave the residence. We know how important it is for our student tenants to have dedicated areas for studying and preparing for school projects that help them to focus and become more productive. To provide an environment that accommodates your needs, 17Hundred offers several study lounges within our off-campus housing that you can use for studying by yourself or working with a group.

Student Housing Amenities for Fitness and Recreation

Your Durham College residence has a fitness centre that is open round the clock, as well as a yoga room. We have specifically designed 17Hundred to include these amenities so you can workout whenever you want without having to leave the residence. We highly encourage our residents to use these facilities because physical exercise can help students handle the stress that can be a part of college life.

We also have a spacious theatre room and recreation centre at our off-campus housing. The theatre centre has a large flat screen television and a great sound system for an optimal viewing experience. Leather sofas are arranged to provide everyone with a great view of what’s playing, too. The recreation centre is a great place to spend time with friends, and this area is complete with a billiard table, foosball table, and ping pong table, as well as a few tables and chairs for socializing.

Stress-Free Lease Agreements

We want to make sure that our student tenants here at 17Hundred feel secure about their lease contracts. We know how important it is for you to be guaranteed that you will not have to shoulder the rent or additional charges of your roommates, which is why you will be signing an individual liability lease contract with us. With this, your sole obligation is to pay for your monthly rent installment and any applicable utility and parking charges.

Student Housing Roommate Matching Services

If you wish to share your apartment with friends, you may file a request by listing the names of those people on your profile card. We require all requests to be mutual, so your friends will also have to list your name on their profile cards.

For other students, we offer a service called roommate matching. This service is designed to ensure that your stay here at 17Hundred is a truly positive experience. The process requires you to fill out a profile card which we will give you when you sign your lease. On this card, you will provide information about your personal interests, preferences, and hobbies. We will use the information that you have provided in your profile card to match you with the most suitable tenant/s with which you will share your suite.
