HOUSING

KEY:
Couldn't have asked for more.
Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.

Cleanliness
Space
Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: On campus
Why? Their student housing is amazing! It is nothing like American university dorms. They are actual apartments with very large bedrooms. Renting an apartment on your own is too expensive and a major hassle.
