Moving out can be as nerve racking as the entrance exams you took to get into school. Okay, maybe not for you, but for some it’s a huge step. If you’ve never lived outside of the warm, cocoon your family has built and so delicately preserved for you, than you may be in for a shock. Or it could be just another day at school, who knows? The main thing is, you’ve made it into University and your main focus is studying what you love. Finally, or at least once you finish your general studies, you’ll be focused on your career. Getting to this point has been hard and graduating can be even harder, but one thing is for certain, you’re going to need a place to live, good friends and more than likely a job.
Friends, Food And A Floor
Hopefully, you won’t spend too many nights sleeping on a floor. Granted there are nights (and they tend to occur the week after finals) where you may wake up on your friend’s floor or your floor, but you shouldn’t make a habit out of it. That being said if you’re looking for an apartment for rent in Montreal, Quebec, it is in your best interest to find a spot that is inexpensive, near your campus and hopefully in a community of other students. How do I find out where other students live without looking like a stalker might you ask? By using a student housing website or service, you’re almost guaranteed to be placed in buildings with other students. Looking for an apartment for rent in Montreal, Quebec just got a lot easier.
An Apartment You Can Afford
Now that you’ve found an apartment, you have to ask yourself if you can afford it. If it seems like you’re going to be cutting it close every month, than you may want to lower your standards a bit. In the long run, you’ll probably rather have some extra cash on hand to do something fun with friends, pay for an unexpected car/bike repair or pay for groceries rather than live in the apartment with the great view. Great views are pretty swell, but the only view you should really be worried about right now is the one of an open book. If you haven’t already, it’s probably a good idea you start making a budget for you to live on. A budget will help your finances from spiraling out of control and it only takes a few hours. Once you know the cost of your books and what your monthly income will be, it’ll be pretty easy to figure out what your living expenses will be and ultimately what type of apartment you can afford.
