One of the decisions a student has to make even before starting university is where to live. This can be difficult for students and their families when they may never have been to Australia before. Many parents feel happiest knowing that their child is in on-site student accommodation.
Some universities offer boarding facilities where students can live on campus. This can save you time and save you money on car costs or public transport fees. It also provides easy access to campus resources like the library and student support services, such as learning support, student welfare support and co-curricular programs. On-site student accommodation can be very beneficial especially in your first year.
Many student rooms or apartments are offered as a package that includes rental fees as well as utilities like water, gas and electricity and even optional add-ons like phone or internet contracts. For students living away from home for the first time, this can certainly help to simplify your responsibilities and make living out of home more manageable and comfortable.
One of the best things about student accommodation is the social opportunities such living arrangements foster and the network of friendships you will build. Student accommodation is usually equipped with common areas where students can cook, eat and socialise together in a safe and supportive environment. Living together can make group work easier.
Degrees Plus Australia can give you peace of mind by arranging on site accommodation at your University for you.
