Student residences are the best accommodation option for Erasmus students. Especially for those who do not know the city until the moment they arrive to start their studies.

For them, living in a student residence allows them to be introduced to the social context in the most pleasant way possible. It also provides them with amenities that facilitate the process of adapting to a new lifestyle.

If you are planning to do an Erasmus study year soon, here are some of the reasons why a student residence will be great for you.

You will make more friends

You won’t have to wait for the first day of school to make friends. Student residences are full of young people like you, coming from other cities and countries, eager to make friends and create their own support network.

In the day-to-day life of a student residence, you will have many opportunities to meet other residents. From the moment you go to breakfast in the dining room to enjoying the fresh air on the roof terrace. There will always be other residents to greet and chat with.

In fact, if you’re staying in a shared flat, your first friends will be your flatmates. And as you live with them on a daily basis, they will become your closest friends.

You will be surrounded by a sense of community

Moving to another country can be an overwhelming change and it’s normal to miss your family, as well as the friends you’ll leave behind. However, the good news is that, in student residences, you will meet people who will make you feel part of a big family.

All the residents will be there for the same reason: to have a unique, shared experience. The true spirit of these accommodations is the daily sharing and the willingness to lend a hand to anyone who needs it.

Being surrounded by this comforting atmosphere will be a good antidote to loneliness and homesickness.

You will have everything you need

Residences aim to provide students with everything they need to live comfortably and carefree. Although certain things vary, most student residences offer a comfortable bed, desk and chair for studying, bookshelves and storage space.

At LIV Student, in addition to these basics, we offer laundry, cleaning, linen and towel replacement, and dining services with half or full board. In this way, we allow our residents to focus on their studies while we take care of the maintenance tasks and their needs.

Another advantage of living in the LIV Student residence is that we have facilities tailored to the needs of our residents. In the building, you will find a gym, yoga room, cinema, karaoke, swimming pool, roof terrace and more spaces for leisure and entertainment.

So you won’t have to go far to spend some quality time with your friends in the building.

You will live in a safe environment

Student residences have security systems in place to protect residents and keep track of what is going on in every part of the building. In general, they have security staff, as well as security cameras and access control methods.

As an Erasmus student, living in a safe environment will give you peace of mind. Especially if you are new to the city and are looking for a safe place to stay.

You won’t have to pay for additional services

When renting a room or flat, you will receive bills for electricity, gas, water and internet. As you know, it will be your responsibility to pay them in order to continue enjoying the services and avoid overcharges.

However, when living in a student residence, these obligations disappear. In these accommodations, you only have to pay a fixed fee that already includes all kinds of services. From the most basic ones mentioned above to cleaning services, laundry, dining room and the enjoyment of the facilities.

For Erasmus students, it’s not just about comfort and convenience. It’s also about the ease of setting a monthly spending budget that won’t change for anything.

You will enjoy the most convenient location

Student residences are located close to the most important universities and institutes of higher education in the cities. They are also often located near metro and bus stations.

This gives you the advantage of being close to everything you will need on a daily basis. You will be able to get to the university within minutes and use public transport to get everywhere else.

For this and more, living in a student residence will make your Erasmus year an amazing experience.
