We have options to rent private or shared bedrooms within 2-, 3-, and 4- bedroom apartments, or to rent an entire apartment.


CfSI Apartments come furnished with all the basics: bed, storage wardrobe, desk, desk chair and desk lamp (per bedroom), kitchen table/chairs, couch, arm chair and coffee table.

All utilities (electricity, gas, hot water and high speed 150mb Wifi) are also included in the rent.

*Off-street parking spaces are available for $100/month at our Gardner St. apartments only. Street parking is available for Allston/Brighton residents only at our Park Vale residences*
