About StudentDwellTO:
StudentDwellTO is a multi-university, multidisciplinary initiative funded by the Presidents of the four Greater Toronto Area Universities - OCAD University, Ryerson University, University of Toronto and York University - to examine access to affordable housing for post- secondary students. The project team includes students and faculty from all four universities, and is being led by Professor Jeremy Bowes of OCAD University, Dr. Shelagh McCartney of Ryerson University, Dr. Luisa Sotomayor of York University, Dr. Marcelo Vieta of University of Toronto and Mauricio Quirós of University of Toronto. Through the facilitation of comprehensive focus groups with post-secondary students and housing experts in Toronto, the study will provide a deeper understanding of student needs and choices about housing, while suggesting possible policy and development directions for decision-makers at the four participating universities, as well as municipal and provincial policy-makers.
