Is it better to stay on-campus or off-campus while studying abroad?



  • I don't know whether on-campus or off-campus is better. how do i make a choice ?



  • A decision like that depends upon a variety of factors. What I can help you with is making an informed decision so here are the advantages of both:

    1. Living on campus:
      a. Accessibility: laboratories, gyms, libraries, etc are much more close to you.
      b. Social Life: Students closer to campus can spend more time there which helps to build friendships and connections in some cases.
      c. Security: Staying on campus with the provision of campus security, gives you a safer feeling than staying off-campus.
    2. Living off-Campus:
      a. Personal Liberty: students living off-campus generally enjoy more independence than those on-campus.
      b. Space and Privacy: for those living on campus having personal space becomes an issue as college dorms can become really noisy at times. This is a big advantage for those who like there own space.
      c. Availability: staying off-campus means you're exposed to much more which helps a lot.
