University Accommodation Geelong July 28, 2017

It isn’t easy to leave the comfort and safety of your home. This may mean moving to another city or another country, a move which will mean searching for accommodation.

Most times, the Faculties contain residential wings on campus, but always there’s an overflow, and lodging is therefore sought beyond the campus.

Residential complexes can be found in University towns that appeal to just such a need. Bearing in mind the transient nature of the renters, these apartments are equipped with the basic amenities.

• Foremost, a location that’s as close as possible to the campus.

• Having a bar, a restaurant and a supermarket round the area will be a definite plus!

• The accommodation ought to be secure enough to keep intruders out.

• Finding a flat in a quiet place, devoid of the noise of traffic could be a blessing.

• It should have plumbing that works.

Privately run homes tend to be expensive. To create the lease affordably, the accommodation can be shared with two to four individuals.

This might be anything from 6 to 8 weeks of the lease. This is done mainly because faculty going tenants are considered high risk. To make sure that the deposit is returned, it would be smart to have a tenancy deposit protection. Any repairs needed in the apartment will be the duty of the landlord. Do remember to have a list of the property before going in, so there is not any room for dispute once the time comes to depart. This will address your many issues.

If it’s a joint tenancy, it would be smart to have all of the renters sign the lease, so that it not the duty of any one individual to bear the burden of paying the rent.

The only thing left to do is to create your new shared home away from home.

For those students that aren’t accommodated on campus, you will find student accommodation in Geelong. There are town homes and apartments not very far from some of the college campuses.
