Why should I advertise with

We're cost-effective. Our rates are low, and give you exposure to thousands of students every month. And if you advertise a lot, you can get bulk rates. We also don't charge by the word, like newspapers do, and we give your ad exposure to students from multiple local schools.

In Edmonton, our housing database is searched between 8,000 and 30,000 times a month, depending on the time of year.

It's easy. Once you've set up an account, you can easily add and cancel ads, and you can leave your unit information in the system to make placing a new ad faster and easier. Re-advertising a unit, once it's in the system, takes less than minute.

Not comfortable with placing ads on-line? You can also call us. We'd be happy to help you.

Your ad helps support student services. After deducting operating costs, the remainder of ad fees are returned to student associations. Your money helps support student services such as walk-safe and orientation programs.
