For the rest of you interested in student living options let's take a look to see what your housing options are once you go off to college or university that don't involve house plans and building materials. If you're going to be going away for school to a city, province, state or country you're unfamiliar with your best bet is to apply for residency. Living in residence and on campus gives you a chance to live with your fellow freshmen class while also always being near the university, just in case you need to be there for some late night studying or early morning exam taking. Living in on-campus residency housing also gives you a chance to get to know the campus and city well enough so that one day you won't worry about getting lost if you ever wander off to nearby bars or go shopping.
If you don't really feel like living in residency and think it's too stuffy or you don't love the meal plan you signed up for then you can always look for some off-campus housing choices.

Even if you find that the combined budget you have would be enough to purchase a condo for sale you don't want to take on that burden at a young age with multiple people you might not have contact with down the line. Just browse the local listings and find a cheap place to rent. We hope you find something to your liking and good luck with the search!
