Student Accommodation

We help you find the right accommodation
to make your overall experience while studying overseas an enjoyable one.

Accommodation is an integral factor when it comes to studying overseas. You will need a comfortable place to stay during your studies, and finding the right accommodation will make your overall experience while studying overseas an enjoyable one. There are different types of accommodation to choose from, such as on-campus Residential Colleges, Private Student Accommodation providers, Homestay, and off-campus housing. Given there are many options available, choosing the right accommodation can be a daunting task.

Types of accommodation

On-Campus Accommodation

This is the most popular option for new commencing students to a University. On-campus accommodation are usually managed by the University and are just walking-distance to the campus. As this is a very popular option for students, it is highly recommended to submit an application as early as possible and yes, you can apply for an accommodation at the same time you apply for admission to the university.

However, it is important to note that not all institutions offer on-campus accommodation.

Key features

  • Residential Colleges usually organise various social activities such as barbeques, excursions or movie nights which residents are expected to participate in. It is a sure way to make new friends, especially if you are going overseas all by yourself.
  • It is very safe. Many colleges are armed with security facilities or on-site security personnel to offer assistance.
  • Most meals will be provided, thus saving you the hassle of doing your own cooking. Special diets (eg. Halal meals or vegetarian) may be available.
  • The fee you pay will usually consist of a fixed number of meals and there is no refund for unconsumed meals. Always remember to request for take-away if you are going to spend lunch in school.
  • Some colleges only offer shared rooms, especially for new undergraduate students. Thus, you may end up with a roommate whose snoring can be your lullaby.
  • Private rooms may be available. However, you will need to share the common living room, kitchen or even bathroom. Depending on the college, some do come with private bathrooms.
  • While cleanliness of common areas is usually managed by the college , students are expected to keep their own rooms clean.
  • The tenancy lease period is usually fixed. Students who arrive much earlier will need to make their own arrangements prior to the lease start date.
  • Students usually apply to stay for up to a year and will need to re-apply to stay the following year.
  • Comparatively, the fee can be slightly more expensive than other types of student accommodation.

Under-18 Accommodation

If you are under 18 years old, looking for accommodation can be a little trickier. This is because the you considered as minor and it is important that where you are staying is safe and you are receiving proper guardianship. Generally, the accommodation will need to be approved as suitable for Under-18 students. Be sure to discuss with your education counsellors if you will be under 18 when arriving overseas.
