University Life: Where You Live Matters

University life with the students having funUniversity life is a one-of-a kind experience that requires different facets to make yours unique. Between studying a variety of subjects and balancing extracurricular activities and social life, college students face different aspects of university living. They can’t wait for the extraordinary episodes only university life can offer.

What most students do not realise, however, is that even the most basic of experiences—such as accommodations—have an impact in their school life.

Where you live during college will impact routines and schedules for years to come. Fortunately, you have plenty of options.

Your Type of Accommodation

Most campuses want students to live comfortably during the school year. James Cook University Singapore, a local university, believes organising student accommodation is an important step for students preparing for their year in school. To address the different needs of the student body, campuses arrange a variety of choices for accommodation on-campus or off-campus.

In most cases, the dorm depends on your deciding factors—primarily on your budget. Student accommodation in Singapore reviews the student’s needs first before offering the following choices: serviced apartments, off-campus hostels, shared rooms or private rentals.

The Perks: Off-Campus and On-Campus

What do you get for living on-campus? If you prefer short walks to and from classes, living near the school is your option. There is no need to worry about rushing from the dorm to your next class; living near the school also allows you to get an extra hour of sleep. Living with a room-mate (or two, depending on the arrangement) teaches you to get along with people from diverse backgrounds.

Off-campus living is ideal for students who want more selection of amenities. For example, they want to bring a pet. Some on-campus living arrangements do not encourage a pet in the dorms. Instead, they can search for pet-friendly communities outside the campus. It’s also perfect for students who wish to commit to short-term leases.

College life goes beyond the books and activities. Where you live also matters because that’s where you’ll experience more out of university life.
