How to find student housing?

Choosing your accommodation

As a Beyond Abroad student, you are responsible for finding your accommodation for the duration of your studies.

Depending on the destination, you will usually be choosing between private off-campus housing and on-campus dorms.

While the dorms are often a great choice when available, you should not be discouraged if you cannot book a room in one. The options via the private market are usually much more luxurious than student housing on campus.

Some students choose affordable accommodation without any extra conveniences, while others want to live more lavishly during their exchange and dip into their swimming pool after classes. Look into many options and choose the accommodation that you like most.

After the application round has closed, we will send students the Beyond Abroad Guide which includes detailed information on housing options recommended by our previous students.
