2018 SPRING/SUMMER SESSION AVAILABILITY:
This year, Nipissing's "Spring/Summer Session" runs from Monday, May 7th to Saturday, August 18th, 2018 (if you include the exam period). If you're a student (or visiting professor) in need of a place for just that period, I can accommodate you with a rental term of 3.5 months (Saturday, May 5th - Sunday, August 19th, 2018). That said, both rooms could likely be rented for the entire five months of summer (Sunday, April 1st - Friday August 31st, 2018), if needed.
2018 FALL TERM AVAILABILITY, TERMS & CONDITIONS:
A formal lease is optional, but the fall rental term is typically eight months, from Saturday August 25th, 2018 to Sunday April 28th, 2019, with first and last due Saturday September 1st, 2018, and then on the first of each subsequent month. That said, for anyone who would like to move in early, both rooms will become available from April 1st onwards, and can be reserved at any time with a one-month deposit.
NOTE: The option to continue renting for the summer of 2019 is also available. And to those students enrolled in a multi-year program, for a nominal fee I can arrange to keep the room (and your personal belongings) for you again for the following academic year should you desire, even if you're not staying in North Bay over the summer.
