How to choose your accommodation?

There are different possibilities for you to get accommodation according to your budget or requirements.

Share accommodation

For a long-term stay, usually more than 3 months, it’s more interesting to rent a room or a whole house/apartment to share with your friends.

You can settle down and feel like home with more freedom to choose where and whom you are going to live with. The price depends on the location, and whether it is a shared or private bedroom in a house or apartment.

Cost per week: starting around $150 for a shared accommodation.


If you are here for a short-term stay, usually less than 3 months, you can choose to stay in a hostel. It’s the easiest and cheapest choice for a short term stay but also a good way to meet people from all over the world. Your hostel can also get you cheap prices for events and activities in the city.

Cost per week: from $100 to $350 for the most expensive hostel.

On campus

When you are doing a student visa you can be offered a room on the campus. You have access to all the campus’ facilities which make you save money and have an easy access to your school. It gives you the opportunity to fully live the student life.

Cost per week: from $100 to $400 depending on the level of service provided.
