As a college student, you have a plethora of accommodation options to choose from. As an international student, finding a comfortable and relaxing place to stay is a must. Luckily, there are several types of accommodations available in various locations that you can choose from.
Living on campus can be a great option, particularly for first-year students. It minimizes travel expenses and provides the opportunity to live on campus with classmates and friends.
Off-campus living is also popular among many students who want to experience life beyond campus. Private, rented accommodations like hostels run by educational institutions or independent agencies are a viable option.
For those who want to experience the local flavors of life in Singapore, homestays are a great option. Some local families open up their homes and offer full boarding to international students. This type of program provides a homely environment that’s welcoming and enjoyable.
