Personal comments
It is perfectly organised. They ensure accomodation for all the foreigner students at low prices. The only disadvantage was the delay in repairs and the fact that the cleanning woman only came once a week or sometimes even less.

Personal comments
Private student houses are available close to campus at very affordable rates. This makes them convinient for an international student who wants to work at campus until late and take a bike home.
