Living in collegePosted by at January 7, 2012 in Collage
This is where you live in on-campus accommodation when you move away from home to go to uni. Most universities have on-campus accommodation to cater for students coming from overseas, from another city or from the country. Most unis also have a housing service to help you find off-campus accommodation as well.
When you look into living at college you will find that there isn’t one standard type of college—there are heaps of different options to choose from. First you have to decide if you want to live ina co-ed or single-sex college. Then you have to decide on the type of set up that you want:
• Full board, which means that breakfast and dinner (seven days a week) are provided for you.
• Half board, where only dinner is provided for you.
• Self-catered, where you have cooking facilities and do all of your own meals.
• Shared room or single room.
• Shared bathroom or private bathroom.
Before you accept a place in any college, it is important that you inspect the place before you pay your fees, just to make sure it meets your expectations. In general you can assume that each college will provide you with a comfortable room containing a single bed, a personal telephone, computer and Internet access points, and you should have some sort of access to recreational facilities.
