Tips for Renting off Campus
- Start your research as early as possible. You will need some time to get familiar with the city & area you are planning to stay.
- Utilize your accommodation support offered by the college or students union to the fullest.
- Inspect the area online while you are in your home country and visit once you reach your destination. If you have any connection through friends or relatives already staying or have been there, ask for recommendations to find the best place.
- Check if there is a proper mode of commute between your college and the place you might live. The area may seem near to college on maps but may not make for easy for a public transportation facility. Make sure how much time you can invest in regular traveling and how much it will cost you. Also, check if the area has all the necessities available, like groceries, medical shops, etc.
- Even if you have procrastinated on the accommodation for the last minute, do not rush through the process and choose the first place available for you under pressure. Take your time and be sure of the area before finalizing it.
- View & inspect the premises and test keys before you deposit or pay rent money.
International students who have not acquired on-campus accommodation may face additional challenges to find a suitable place. Be aware of any scams. You can always consult Vision International to get the accommodation that best fits your needs and your budget.
