One major question that comes to mind after getting admission in a foreign university is how to find accommodation. Most of the top universities provide accommodation to students either on site or off site. However, there are certain institutes or universities that don't provide accommodation. In that case, the students must search for the accommodation with assistance from the educational institution.

As an international student, you must have some arrangements for your accommodation before departing from your home country so that you will not get stuck in the airport. Make sure that you are looking for accommodation for short term. This is because, you may likely to find better accommodation once you get used to the city and interact with more people. Hence, making arrangements for one month accommodation is more than enough.

While looking for an accommodation, do keep in mind the following aspects:

  • Distance between the university and your accommodation and conveyance facilities
  • Accommodation type
  • Rent

Most of the top universities and colleges allocate rooms for students in their Halls of Residence. But, this will be on first come first serve basis. However, you will have to pay extra for the food and laundry as they usually don’t provide them. 

Home stay

Other than the room facilities provided by colleges, another option is home stay. This is one option students always prefer as the home stays provide a well furnished room with all necessary facilities such as separate or shared bathroom. The home stay also offers meals. Renting a house is another option if you are in a group and looking for accommodation. In a rented apartment, you need to shell out more on food and laundry. Again, the rent depends on the location. If you look for a pocket-friendly accommodation, you may find it difficult to get it near your college or university.
