Types of Accommodation
A room in a hostel is the cheapest option. This type can be chosen as single occupancy rooms, rooms for couples or family rooms. Most student hostels have a shared kitchen and bathroom. The rooms will be furnished simple and basic.
Shared flats are popular alternatives and involve two or more people sharing a private apartment. It’s a good way to meet people, and the costs are reasonable. You can find vacant rooms online.
Living in a shared flat is the ideal choice, as it allows us to enjoy breakfast together at the weekend or to cook together after a day at university. So you quickly make new friends.
A room in a shared flat is often cheaper than renting your apartment – and is much easier to find. Especially in the semester vacations, many shared flat inmates are looking for new flatmates.
A private apartment is almost always unfurnished and tends to be more expensive than other types of accommodation. Incidentally, you will have to pay also for the electricity and water extra.
