Before You Study Abroad: Tips on Student Furniture Rental, Flats, and Friends
Author Miriam Beard once said, “Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.” Studying abroad in college will not only open your eyes to a whole new world of people, places, and studies, but it will help you see the world in a whole new way. Student furniture rental will not only streamline the process of moving to a different country, but ensure that your international home away from home will be both comfortable and stylish as well. Here are some tips for preparing for your study abroad experience:
Whether you’re studying abroad in the States for a term or you’re an American student studying abroad and trying to figure out living arrangements for a single semester at home, renting furniture is the easiest solution to your living needs. Taking advantage of student furniture rental not only means you’ll be guaranteed stylish and comfortable furniture, but will make moving in and out a simple and hassle-free process. With all of the stress of preparing to study abroad, this is one thing you just won’t need to worry about.
Flats, Flops, and Home Sweet Homes
Finding suitable lodging isn’t always easy. Check with your school to see if on-campus housing will be available for you at your destination. If not, try contacting your new school to ask for recommendations or check online listings. For students coming to the United States, online apartment finders such as ApartmentSearch can help you find an apartment that meets all of your needs. During your search keep in mind such factors as: proximity to transportation and important services, safety of the neighborhood you’re looking into, whether you’ll want to live with roommates, and if the apartment has all of the amenities you need.
Before you leave, reach out to fellow students making the trip with you. Who knows, you might just meet your next best friend! Even if you don’t, it’s important to look out for one another in a completely new country. Check in with your travel-mates on a weekly basis and keep all forms of communication open. You never know when you’ll need a friendly face or just want to throw a get-together.
