I take it you are doing your own taxes?
If you are using an accountant or a tax service, try claiming everything you have. They will tell you yes or no.
That rent should be tax deductible, it doesn't matter if it was cash as long as they can give you a receipt. Without the receiot, it could be tricky.
Also the costs involved with getting set up in the apartment (moving fees) are a write off in some provinces (Ontario=yes, NB=no), so it is worth a try there.
If you still have receipts for books, etc, write them off anyway.
And of course, your tuition fees are deductible, but you already know that.
