Finding housing year to year is a common source of stress for students. Deciding where to live while studying in another country can be even more difficult. While some study abroad programs provide housing for students, other programs require that students find their own arrangements. From dorms, to apartments to homestays, once you’re settled in it’s important to make your new room feel like home. Here’s how some of our bloggers are living around the world.
Student flats in London
Our flat is in the heart of Central London. Our district is called Clerkenwell which is a very ‘up and coming’ area with loads of cute street markets and trendy, hipster coffee shops. We’re about a 10 minute walk from St. Paul’s Cathedral and South Bank. – Maya Anderman
Dorm life in Shanghai
At East China Normal University, international students stay in the international dorms, where each floor is separated by gender. The dorm rooms are bigger than dorms at USC, the beds come with bedding that you can change once a week and there’s a lot of storage space – Jasmine Zahedi
