Erasmus Accommodation Abroad. Find the perfect room
The idea of living abroad during one semester or a full year sounds exciting and at the same time might be scary! Let’s see how is to find accommodation for Erasmus or International Students abroad.
Erasmus Accommodation Abroad
Studying and living abroad is a great idea to improve your curriculum and for personal development, however leaving your accommodation for the last minute can reveal itself as a real nightmare. Think that your accommodation will be the base of your entire experience, with the ability to boost it or downsize it.
For this reason we advise you to aim for an experience bigger than simply flatsharing abroad and based in an early research! Instead, look for an unique flatshare experience where you can belong to a community and learn new skills from the comfort of your own place.
As you know many details must to be held in consideration when choosing your accommodation abroad, but to make it a little bit more simple we decided to divide it in three main topics that can help you guide your search and selection of a flat. Take a look!
Book Your Room Abroad Without Surprises
“Better safe than sorry”, just like your mother probably has told you many times before! When it comes to your accommodation abroad don’t let it to the last minute. This decision should not be taken lightly and in a rush since your accommodation can dictate your quality of life during your Erasmus adventure.
Spending time worrying about the bills, unresponsive landlords and disrespectful flatmates can jeopardise your experience abroad. Not to mention that stories of scams and ripoffs have become more and more usual among the business of homes for students abroad. For this reason pay attention to the methods of payment and info requested prior your booking and payment. It’s better to pay for assured quality and security instead of risking losing money and time!
Focus in finding a safe accommodation with a well built community that will support you and receive you in this new chapter in a foreign city.
Keep Your Privacy But don't feel alone
Sure university or dorm accommodation might cross your mind as a tempting option to stay during your Erasmus exchange program, however it can be a tricky decision to make.
Many dormitories decide to stock their students in small shared rooms obliging them to give up on their personal space in order to pay a lower price during their stay abroad. Of course that you came to your Erasmus programme intending to meet new people, but that does not mean you have to sacrifice your privacy.
In Student Room Flat we follow the idea of “alone but never lonely”. You have access to a room just for you in a shared flat, getting to keep your personal space in a shared accommodation. It’s up to you to choose between shared accommodation or private accommodation, knowing that in both cases your personal space will always be respected.
In any case if you look for a more particular or individual experience a student studio can be the perfect option, leaving the daily confraternization for outside of your place (student home)m
Be part of a young and vibrant community
Making new friends can be challenging, specially when you’re going to have to communicate with people from many different cultures and backgrounds.
