kaleisi Posted March 28, 2014 Share Posted March 28, 2014 (edited) Hi everyone, How do you deal with the hassle of finding somewhere to live in when you're not even in the country yet - with no means to visit until around the time the program starts? I know dorms is the easy option, but it so happens that I am in a counseling program where I have to spend a lot of the time in the off-campus center. Which means I'm stuck carpooling with others for a while, since it's not that close to campus and my sessions at the counseling center are late in the evening. ALSO, I'll have to stay in the dorms for two semesters before I am able to move. I also have the issue of being in an urban area where some neighborhoods aren't that safe, so this is quickly becoming an overwhelming problem Advice and help would really be appreciated. I've spoken to some students in the program who have suggested some very safe areas for me to live in (off campus), but I'd still have a ) transportation issues and b ) no way of knowing what living in that apartment is like until I get there.. How did YOU deal with the housing hurdle as an international student? What would you do in my situation? Edited March 28, 2014 by kaleisi Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
