Living in Guelph
Guelph is one of the best cities to live in! The local transportation is quite wonderful – on time, friendly, used heavily by students, and occasionally driven by the clinically insane. But it will get you where you need to go. The city itself is quite walkable/passably bike-able (though, some main roads are suicide for bikers – we don’t judge you for riding on sidewalks). It’s pretty reasonable to find a place to rent between 350-500 if you don’t mind roommates, since it’s a big University town that also offers co-ops in many programs (so it’s easy to usurp someone’s lease).
The arts/music/culture scene is fantastic and there’s lots of wonderful places to eat and shop. Make sure to visit the downtown for a plethora of community driven events and functions. And say hi to the public librarians – they’re fantastic people!
