That’s precisely why here are 7 points to keep in mind when looking for a room to rent in your college town, to find the perfect room at the best price.

1. Know your budget

3. Find out what is around

Whenever you find what you are looking for in a house ad, it is normal to wonder if there is something negative you cannot see.

Find the answer to all these questions right on Uniaffitti’s listings. Click on an ad, look at the photos, description and price, and finally scroll down and you will find a simple pattern using the geolocation to indicate the university campus closest to the house, library and food stores nearby, as well as public transportation passing nearby. Useful, no?
