Colleges and universities have changed throughout the years and now students have all kinds of opportunities when it comes to living on campus. According to the size of the college, you can find such accommodations as residence halls, double apartments, single apartments, and theme communities right on campus.
Residence halls are using designed for freshmen so they can get used to college life since this is their first time living away from home. In the majority of cases, the rooms will accommodate either 2 or 4 students living and sharing the room. This is the first step in entering college life and learning how to live others that you just met. This can be a great opportunity for most freshmen.
Double apartments provide three bedrooms that will hold six students or you can also often find single occupancy apartments on campus that provide four bedrooms for four students. Apartments are furnished along with a living room, kitchen, dining room, and two bathrooms.
Themed communities are for students that are studying the same majors or even for LGBT, sophomores, freshman, females, males or other various communities.
By living on campus you will have access to meeting rooms, fitness rooms, computer labs, multipurpose rooms, and laundry rooms.
Of course, not every college or university will offer the same type of accommodations, so you should check out the various colleges you have on your list that you would like to attend so you can make a decision on the school that offers the accommodations that you prefer.
Remember, living on campus will not be free unless you have received a grant, scholarship, or another type of living expenses that will pay for what the college has to offer. The choice is yours as to where you want to live, but you should sit down with your parents and ensure you make the best decision in your own personal situation.
