The first decision

The first decision you will take is whether you want to live in student accommodation (run by the University) or if you’d rather live in a private rental. Many students decide to live in privately rented student houses, studios, or shared apartments. However, short-term accommodation is also available in the form of hotels and hostels, in addition to other students subletting their places for a couple of months.

When renting a student-room, you share facilities like kitchen, bathroom, toilet and sometimes a living room. When renting a studio or apartment you don’t have to share those facilities. Also, when renting a student-room you usually can’t choose your own housemates. These can all make your experience very different, so it is an important decision to make!

In the following sections, you will find more information on obligations, basic rent, service costs and much more.
