All universities offer the opportunity of living in a hall of residence. Some of the halls of residence are situated near the universities, others, in the city centre. Some are further away so you will have to use public transport to get to university. On the whole, these halls have been renovated and equipped with modern appliances; they all have internet access. You should know in advance not all residences have the same conditions. Usually, the residents of the hall share common showers and kitchen and students share their room with one or two other people, but this is offset by a comparatively low cost of living. Furthermore, living with a lot of students is an experience which will never be forgotten.
