Living in campus accommodation makes it easy for students to take care of their daily needs such as housing contracts, electricity-water-gas bills, security fees, and of course the convenience of online shopping with a front desk. In addition to containing students from one particular university, campus accommodation also ensures the convenience of staying because room allocation is usually adjusted to the level of education pursued by students.
Student (Independent) Accommodation
These are accommodations for student organized by independent building management.
Similar to living in campus accommodation, it is easy for students to take care of their daily needs such as housing contracts, electricity-water-gas bills, security fees, and of course the convenience of online shopping with a front desk. Monthly bill mostly includes all electricity-water-gas and internet.
When choosing accommodation, care should be taken about where your university and majors are followed. Or for those who have a family, the priority may be to go to school for children with good access to related campus locations. Monthly bill may not yet include electricity-gas-internet.
