Your WUSA Vice President, Katie Traynor, was featured on CTV Kitchener to highlight WUSA’s new Housing Playbook!

“Students are in a dire position where they need to find the most affordable housing because they simply cannot afford to live next to the institution and just need to be in a place where they can afford all of their basic necessities” – Katie Traynor, Vice President, WUSA

Katie also highlighted that finding housing close to the university, while managing part-time jobs, a full course load, and other life stressors is a big task, and that the Housing Playbook is meant to help make the burden of navigating tenancy a bit easier.
