Dorms Housing Problems

For college students, having a safe, comfortable place to live is an essential part of being able to focus and do good work in school. But whether it's a convenient on-campus dorm or an off-campus apartment, student housing presents challenges that students need to consider before they decide where to live each semester.


 One of the clearest problems in student housing is the need students have to find places to live that are close to campus. On-campus dormitories and apartments offer one solution, but many larger universities have so many students that auxiliary campuses and buses are the only way to provide enough accessible housing.

 High demand for student housing near urban campuses or large schools may cause real estate prices to rise, making nearby apartments and rental houses unaffordable for students. Off-campus housing also places the burden of paying for utility service and commuting to and from campus on the students themselves. For students who take out loans to fund an education, expensive dorms, which may also require students to buy a meal plan to eat on campus, add to graduation debt.

 Dorms are notorious for being cramped, and off-campus student apartments may be no better,
all houses and apartments near urban campuses have really high rent, that is why most of students may not have enough funds to rent them.  Moreover, if you decide to stay at off-campus apartments, you should be ready to pay for the utility service and commuting. Convenience and accessibility. This is the main problem, because students should find the housing place near the campus.

Security and safety. All students should understand: if they decide to live in off-campus apartments, they will lose the safety protection of campus security. That may encounter burglary and theft from their neighborhoods or roommates. Student housing may cause some problems with privacy, because there are a lot of people, who live in a limited place. They should be ready to share bathrooms, study lounges, kitchen and other places with their neighbors or roommates, if they decide to live in a campus.

The Board of Regents recently approved a four percent increase in on-campus housing rates and a five percent increase for meal plans. The money generated by the increase will go toward renovations of on-campus housing and cover the increasing cost of food. While I do understand that up keeping facilities is an important part of running a university, I cannot help being skeptical of the increase.

  1. I personally prefer to those accommodations that are near to main city or in major areas of the city. With the help of letting agents it is not difficult to get accommodation according to your standard.

Adjustable Split King Beds: 2 Twin Extra-Long Size Beds Combined

On the surface, the answer to "What is a split king mattress?" may seem quite simple -- but there are several different types of split king beds to choose from. No matter what your budget or your particular circumstances, there is a split king that will suit you just perfectly. Why Are Split Kings Made?   A split king is made as a solution for comfortable sleeping for a couple. The bed is divided into two sections so that each person has their own customized side of the bed. This would allow for one person to have a firm mattress while the other person has a soft one, or for one person to have an electric blanket while the other one can sleep blissfully in the chilly night air that they prefer. Sometimes a split king is made for people with medical issues so that the person needing specific medical bedding -- like a bed that sits up and reclines automatically for example -- can have it on their own side but not on the side of the person who is not in need

Summer is halfway over. Soon, you're going to be starting college for real and playing a college sport for which a coach actually recruited you. Let's assume the sport is baseball. Let's further assume that you haven't been recruited to play at the University of Miami, Stanford, the University of Virginia or the winner of this year's College World Series . You're an above-average player and, according to the slots available and probabilities, you're probably in a NCAA Division III program. (Even if you're in a fairly big time Division I program, you might want to finish reading this article.
