Research housing options in advance keeping in mind safety concerns.

Contact a university or college in the host country, which might have room availble in its residence, or an off-campus housing directory. Ask your work term employer if they have referrals to local sources of accommodation listings.

Things to consider when making your decision:

  • Find out exactly what is included (furniture, kitchen amenities, linens, towels, laundry, heating, etc).
  • Ask about rules and regulations regarding rentals in the country and make sure to read the fine print carefully.
  • Ask a lot of questions.
  • Always get everything in writing.
