Concerned how COVID-19 will impact student housing?

Learn how companion housing can be a safe option to student dorms.

Created by students, for students.

The Happipad post-secondary model was created by students, for students. We wanted to create an affordable housing model that allowed students to better connect with their community, build connections, and take their learning beyond the classroom.

Students are paired with a mature, vetted host based on needs and requirements. Homes are furnished and move-in ready with all utilities included. Simple, safe, and stress-free housing.

Socially conscious housing

Companion housing offers an affordable alternative to the dorm lifestyle while integrating students into your local community. Students are able to find mentors, meet friends, and experience your local Canadian culture first hand with multi-cultural and inter-generational homes.

COVID-19 Considerations

Health and safety of all people is our top priority. Housing companion programs provide a safe alternative to dorm style housing.

Home sanitation: Homes are maintained by our mature hosts to keep sanitation to a safe standard.

Social companion: Isolation is challenging for mental health, Happipad’s housing companions benefit from social connections while minimizing exposure risk.

Self-isolation: Students entering Canada are required to self-isolate for 14 days upon arrival. This may be done within selected Happipad homes, or Happipad can help arrange other temporary housing.

Natural clusters: Companion homes form natural clusters, allowing for reduced exposure from shopping and public interactions.
