As you plan your international education, it’s important to consider what type of housing you’ll be most comfortable living in.
There are a number of opportunities for students. You can stay with a host family, in a hostel, apartment, student halls, residential colleges, or private rental property.
Remember, your choice of home can have a serious impact on your education, health and overall well-being. While there can be a multitude of options, getting the right one can make your study experience a fulfilling and enjoyable one.
Many students choose to live at the university or college (often referred to as ‘on campus’) or live with a local family when they first arrive. This allows you to become familiar with your new city and instantly have a network of people to support you.
Living with your friends in a rental property outside of the campus can be one of the most cost-saving options but this option does mean you will be living closely with other people. Here are some tips to help your new household run smoothly.
