Living-off Campus


Living-off Campus

There is nothing more thrilling than living off-campus for many college and university graduates.

This provides democracy, independence and the beginning of adulthood.

For some situations, though, nothing is more exhausting and frustrating than living off-campus.

Taking so much responsibility can quickly become overwhelming.

Fortunately, there are some tips and tricks to help every student survive this journey.

Find out how much you can afford to pay the off-campus living

This budget would cover your rent, services (gas, electricity, cable, cell phone bills, grocery stores, household goods, and entertainment if applicable).

For example, expenses are more manageable, and budgeting will be simpler if you stay with roommates.

However, if you move to student housing rentals, you will not have to think about the cost of utilities.

Try introducing several roommates to the mix

Living-off Campus

One way to alleviate some of the costs of living off-campus is by joining up with a roommate or, better yet, many roommates and renting a house or apartment together.

Paying RM1,200 a month to rent an apartment on your own could be too expensive for your budget.

But renting a house with four people for RM1,200 a month is going to be a lot more manageable.

Shop around for safe houses and apartments in the college area

After you have figured out how much you can afford to spend on off-campus housing and determine whether you are going to stay with roommates, you can start hunting for a house.

Look for homes and apartments in secure communities that are not too far from your school.

You want to be able to get back to school quickly without having to waste a lot of time.

Make sure you can afford and got reliable transport

How to go to class?

To certain students, public transport may be an alternative.

You can jump on a bus or train and get to school, no problem at all.

But for others, owning a car might be the only way to get to and from school.

We need a reliable car and the means to pay for anything that comes with it such as fuel, maintenance and parking.

Think about what you are going to eat

We have already discussed that you would need to budget for food accordingly while you stay off-campus.

You will no longer have convenient access to the dining hall at school.

You will also need to learn how to cook breakfast, lunch and dinner for yourself every day so that you remain safe.

It’s up to you to teach yourself.
