The Great Neighbourhood Campaign Returns to Fleming College

Peterborough ON – (Sept. 21, 2022)  Fleming College is working with local police services and municipalities, encouraging students to be great neighbours.  

Fleming student leaders and staff have partnered with the Peterborough Police Service, the Kawartha Lakes Police Service and municipal councillors to welcome students living off-campus to their new neighbourhoods.  

Teams will be walking around the neighbourhoods surrounding each campus, handing out magnets that provide a link to Fleming’s Great Neighborhood and Student Housing guides. These guides include information any new resident may need, including recycling schedules, city maps, public transit, links to community events, tenant rights and responsibilities, tips on being a great neighbour and more.  

The Great Neighbourhood Campaign gets underway in Peterborough on Thursday, Sept. 22 at 5 p.m. at the Sutherland Campus’s Residence Circle and on Wednesday, Oct. 5 at 5 p.m. at the Frost Campus residence in Lindsay.  

Fleming continues to emphasize its shared commitment to be a welcoming place for all students as they transition into the community and reinforce the important contribution students make in building strong neighbourhoods.

Places4Students.com Asks Homeowners to Consider Renting Rooms to Students

Media release provided by Places4Students.com. Please contact Places4Students for more information. For Fleming-related housing inquiries, please contact Karen Hennessey at Karen.Hennessey@flemingcollege.ca

Places4Students.com, the company specializing in providing colleges and universities throughout North America with off-campus housing solutions, is reaching out to the public with a plea to help provide housing accommodations for students returning to class this fall.

Students are currently planning to move to our campus communities for this new academic term in September; However, some students are finding it difficult to locate safe and affordable housing accommodations due to low vacancy rates across the country. This poses an even greater challenge for international students travelling from abroad.

Places4Students.com partners with colleges, universities, and student unions to provide a rental property listing service for students, landlords and affiliates of the schools.

To assist with this dilemma, Places4Students.com is informing homeowners about the benefits of renting to students and asking them, “Would you be willing to rent your spare room to a student attending college or university in your community?” 

“The current rental market of extremely low vacancy rates has created an unprecedented struggle for students to find a place to live while attending school. Our team is doing all we can to help by reaching out to the community and raising awareness. By renting out a room not being used within their house to a student, homeowners can gain a new revenue source and experience other benefits too. It’s a win-win for both!” said Mark Taylor, Director of Accounts with Places4Students.com.

For the month of September, Fleming is offering FREE general listings to help generate more housing options for their students online (check Places4Students.com for offers and details). For more information, please contact 1-866-766-0767, admin@p4s.com or visit https://www.places4students.com.

Fleming College Addresses Gaps in Housing for Seniors And Students

Peterborough, ON – (June 8, 2022) – Fleming College is helping to address gaps in housing for seniors and post-secondary students through its participation in Canada HomeShare Peterborough.  

Canada HomeShare Peterborough is part of a 10-city housing pilot program that supports aging in place for older adults while providing safe and affordable housing to Fleming and Trent University students. Those students provide up to seven hours of support by way of companionship, helping with household chores or running errands for local, older adults in their home in exchange for reduced rent of around $400 to $600 a month. It is being launched through a partnership between the Trent Centre for Aging & Society and Canada HomeShare.  

Two representatives from Fleming College will join the Canada HomeShare Peterborough Advisory Committee. The Committee also includes representatives from Trent Off-Campus Housing, Community Care Peterborough, the City of Peterborough, and Age-Friendly Peterborough.  

Canada HomeShare Peterborough will launch in the fall of 2022.  

An information session is taking place June 15 at 2 p.m. at the Trent University Student Centre at 1680 West Bank Dr. Please contact aging@trentu.ca to RSVP or for more information on the session. Visit here for more information on Canada HomeShare Peterborough.
