Housing
Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: On campus
Why?
In fact it is not really a campus. It is a building that belongs to the association of the school (KY). In that building there are only apartments for 3 people which is very useful to find friends and to know quickly people from other countries. So I would make the same choice, and you know, when you pay 120 euros per month, you are very happy to spare to travel!!

Personal comments
Concerning the accomodation, KY, the association of the school give you the choice between 3 appartments between 120 and 400 euros. People in appartments at 400 euros are lucky because it is so beautiful and comfortable there, but so unlucky to have boring days because they are alone and it is so difficult to get friends there. At last I am very happy concerning my choice to live in "Ida", even if I have to take the bus during 30mn to go to school and to the city.
