During the first stage of the university career, thinking about a correct choice for accommodation if you are a student is something that you cannot overlook. University residences or shared apartments tend to become one of the most common options for all the comforts and benefits they provide. Just as rents are today, we cannot forget the young university students and workers who, although they exceed 30 years , they still do not have enough purchasing power to buy or rent their own home, and they see in the shared flat the best option to become independent.
Meet people and make friends. The first days is the ideal time to interact with your university classmates. If in the classroom you cannot establish a relationship that goes beyond academics, your roommates can become a fundamental pillar in your social life. Having roommates means fighting loneliness since these can be key when it comes to integrating yourself and getting to know the city where you will live better.
Saving. The main advantage of sharing an apartment is the cost savings that it entails compared to living alone. If you are also a student and work you will not want to leave much of your salary in a rental, and this will be the main reason why you decide to share a flat. Another saving that occurs when you have a roommate is saving time on all household chores, they can organize shifts and rotate tasks to have more free time. In a shared flat the rental costs are divided between the inhabitants thereof, as well as the payment of electricity, water and heating, so at the end of the month the savings with respect to an individual home is quite considerable.
Personal maturity Sharing a flat with more people will help you mature and grow, you must learn to live together, to share, to be more tolerant and respectful of others, to be more flexible and of course, to be more independent.
Know other cultures and languages. If you are lucky enough to share a flat with students from other countries, you can meet other cultures, new dishes, customs, languages, etc. Also, if you make a good friendship with any of them you will have guaranteed free accommodation to visit other countries. Being in an apartment with students from other countries is of an unequaled cultural wealth!
For all these reasons and for many other things we have the conviction that the experience of sharing a flat if you are a university student can be more than positive. So find an accommodation for students and go live it!
