Bylaws, Tenant Safety and Property Standards

As a student resident, you are responsible for your behaviour on and off-campus. These are some bylaws that you should be particularly aware of:

Parking Bylaw: Residents in your neighbourhoods need to park too! Make sure you’re aware of the residential parking rules so everyone has room to park and your vehicle isn’t in the way:

Noise and Nuisance Bylaws: Guelph neighbourhoods are home to professionals, alumni, seniors, and families, as well as students. Make sure you’re aware of the 24/7 Noise and Nuisance Bylaw, and that you’re respecting noise levels at all times of the day:

*Note that the Noise bylaw in Guelph is 24/7. Playing amplified music outdoors is not allowed at any time of day.

Property Standards: Neighbours like for their neighbourhoods to be well kept. Be aware that your property is part of the landscape for others. See the Guelph Property Standards bylaw at

Tenant Safety Inspections: If you would like a Rental Unit Inspection, the city offers them for free! Book yours today at
