Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Elgin Hall is by far one of the best residences on UWO's campus. The rooms are large and have a shared kitchen for four roommates, as well as shared washroom per two roommates. It allows for privacy while allowing the college experience of a dormitory. The cafeteria here is also incredible.
The downside is it is shamefully expensive. Unless on scholarship or hailing from Richmond Hill, Ontario... This is a ridiculous amount to be asking from students. Also, beware of the psycho roommate. Though all three may seem nice at first, chances are only one-third is somewhat normal.

Advice for students:
The amount of housing is not an issue at Western. However, there are many run-down student homes that are not maintained well by landlords. Compared to other university cities in Canada, housing is somewhat expensive, but these are for areas near campus and downtown.
