Just passed you’re a degree and have to leave for uni? Panic on board! Face it, we are quite happy to leave Mum and Dad, who are sometimes very annoying, but it’s still a little scary. Student residence, individual apartment, flatsharing, the choices are endless, so what to do?!
Choosing the right location
You will spend a lot of time in your apartment. It is important to choose an area in which you will feel good. We must also take into account how close your place of study is, where your friends live, the places you go, etc. This will save you a lot of time in transport!
Individual apartment, dormitory or flatshare?
With the many choices available to you in terms of housing, it’s easy to find one that will suit your needs.
An individual apartment allows you to enjoy your own living space. You can get out of the student frame of mind when you get home.
For example, individual studios give you full autonomy and independence. It will allow you to envisage a truly independent life. In addition, you will have various neighbors: active, retired, etc. This will allow you to take a break from classes.
In student accommodation, you may, depending on the income of your parents, receive housing discounts. You will live surrounded by other students, and you do not have much distance between your CDE or school and your home. No need to take public transportation!
Finally, you can opt for a flatshare. This can be a good way to have a larger living space and you’ll avoid evenings alone, however be careful in choosing your roommate! Flatsharing also allows you to split housing costs relative to the number of residents in the apartment. Flatsharing is an economical solution.
It’s up to you to choose your preferred solution!
