Choosing the right accommodation for a university that’s thousands of miles away can be, to say the least, a difficult experience. There are, in general, three choices for most international students when they’re choosing their accommodation. The three options are, in no particular order: homestay, apartment living, or student dorms.
Many international students enjoy homestay more than any other option simply because it makes life very easy – you’ll be staying with a family in the city you’re studying in, and if you’re lucky you’ll have your meals cooked for you and will be treated as a guest of the house. Homestay hosts usually go through a vetting process with their university to ensure the correct environment is in place for a visiting student, which reduces any chance that you could end up in the middle of a dysfunctional household – not what you want when you’re trying to study.
Apartment Living/Private Accommodation
Living in your own rented apartment or room can be a good option if you feel confident enough to do your own cooking, laundry, and everything else that needs to be done in a house. You could live with other students in a shared apartment, or you could rent a single bedroom apartment for just yourself to live in. Generally, this is a more expensive option than homestay or staying in student dorms, especially if you choose to live just on your own. Remember that in private accommodation you might also be expected to cover household bills such as utilities like your electricity and gas supply.
Student Dorms/Student Accommodation
Living in a student dormitory is what most native students choose to do when they go to university, at least for the first year. Here, there will be loads of first-year students all in the same boat as you, looking to make friends and get to know everyone. It’ll be busy, messy and exciting, and a great opportunity to get to meet lots and lots of people, to practise your language skills, and generally to fit in as a ‘normal’ student. People will happily talk to you and you’ll get to know a lot about everyone, whether you like it or not.
