    Some tips to remember before opting for off-campus accommodation:

    1. For international students, it is best to ask the host university if they can recommend private accommodation options to you. Many Universities across Europe have a list of reputable property companies while many student unions also have websites that help students find rooms.
    2. Decide on your budget and look for accommodation within it.
    3. Try and find out about the area and location that you would be living in.
    4. Before signing on dotted lines of your residential contract and making the payment try checking out the accommodation and read the contract thoroughly. If there is any doubt, take advice from your host university.
    5. Always get all the terms and conditions written in the contract. This way, you will have no chances of being taken for a ride.
