HOUSING    
Personal assessment
Cost
KEY:
Couldn't have asked for more.
Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.
Disappointing.
Facilities
Location
Cleanliness
Space
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? Because i had my own space, a lot of intimacy and also independence. I could cook for myself whenever i wanted, and i was with more people in the same situation as mine, and it was very nice to have someone living with you all the time. You never felt bored or alone, much more funny.
Personal comments:
It id pretty good organised, and offers a lot of facilities and commodities to the studenta staying there. Also the area and the atmosphere is great as you find there a lot of students who share the same situation as you.
