Is it important for you to be close to the university, or are you happy to travel each day? Do you enjoy having a like-minded community close at hand or do you crave solitude? Is it nice to have the odd amenity or are convenience and accessibility simply non-negotiable?

We all have different needs and requirements, and what works well for one may feel inconceivable to another.

Here are 6 key considerations that can help you decide what exactly you are looking for – and what might best fit your needs.

  1. Location

If you know you’re the type of student that doesn’t necessarily always leave enough time to get to lectures, or simply enjoys the convenience of everything at your doorstep, then the location will be a key consideration. Being situated close to all universities in Dubai International Academic City reach your university in a couple of minutes so that you don’t miss that lecture/class or an important assignment in our free multiple shuttle service.

  1. Community feel

Feeling part of a community will form one of the most enjoyable aspects of your time at uni and so at your off-campus student community where you will make 1000 friends of different cultures and universities under one roof. Living and studying amongst like-minded individuals creates experiences, memories, and networking opportunities. Achieving a balance of enough quiet time for study and enough time to let off steam creates the perfect blend of study and social time.

  1. Safety first

  1. Company

Do you prefer your own space? Will you want to share your living space with friends, or maybe meet some new ones? Decide on your preferences and then work out where they can best be accommodated. Don’t feel pressured to just do what your friends might decide; this is your opportunity to make your own choices.

  1. Settling in benefits

If you’re keen to get stuck into university life, check out what is on offer that will help you settle in and get involved. Are there events or activities timetabled that draw the community together? How can you meet fellow students? Also, consider what support is available for those times when life is not running as smoothly as you might like.

  1. Budget

It’s also important to understand what you can actually afford. Read the small print carefully and check out inclusions such as utilities and wi-fi usage to avoid any unwelcome surprises when choosing your student accommodation.
