Types of Accommodation
For students looking to study overseas, there are a variety of options and a number of considerations
that our experts can run you through.
Accommodation on the campus is run by the university and is well within the confines of the institution. This should also be your first port of call since this type of accommodation comes with several advantages. It one of the most beneficial choices due to its secure entries and with other university buildings located nearby. Since you will be living amongst other students, you have the benefit of social interactions as well. More casual exchanges can happen when you are cooking in the communal kitchen or sharing the leisure space.
Sometimes the desired study destination may not offer on-campus accommodation. For example, in Holland and Germany, private accommodation is the only option because university campuses seldom offer any housing. In France, recipients of government-distributed scholarships are the only ones entitled to on-campus accommodation. Yet, for all, clusters of student accommodation and housing are available where you will still feel like you are living amidst the student community. Get additional benefits too such as being closer to local life and staying more immersed in the city or town life where you are living.
