Many of our students prefer staying in rented flats/apartments on sharing basis. If 3-4 students share an apartment, the expenses are reasonable. Students are free to take food at our cafeteria or choose from many other options.
Another option for our international students is to stay in private hostels. We can suggest names of some agents for private hostel accommodation.
