Students in this city are mostly from other provinces. So they have to live in hostels or rented a room. I always prefer to live in the dorms. In my opinion, the dormitory is most evident where the life of a student. How about you? If you are a student, you want to live in hostels or rented a room?

Yes,the cost of hostel is quite cheap. And when we live in it, we can update information of school earlier than others.

When I were in the college, I never stayed in the dormitory. First of all, there wasn't enough rooms for students at my college. Secondly, there wasn't any room available during the summer. Most of the students had to move out during the summer. Thirdly, there wasn't any place for the students to cook in the dormitory. Fourthly, too many restriction in dormitory especially the allowed time to go out and to return to dormitory and so on. I hate to stay at dormitory although we might get more friends over there.

Those are inconvenient things of dormitory. But I think they're not big problems. Live in dormitory is crowd and very fun. We can suggest to live in it on summer if we like. Of course, we can't cook. But this is convenient of our studying. Right? You wouldn't be busy for it.

Since I enter college I have to rent a room and now it is my last year. I prefer to live in a rented room because I can do whatever I want. Most of the rented rooms are cheaper and has no curfews, I can go to my friends, I can join group studies late at night.

When i was a student,i choose to stay in dormitory exclusive for girls and have and individual room. Before i rented a room with classmates but i am not used to sharing my personal things to anyone,so i change to dormitory and have a single room for me.

If I were a student, I would prefer the dormitory as well. For most dorms have caretakers that provide policy for the entire renters. That way I will be sure I am safe and that the students there are not noisy. So during exam week I will be able to study well. I can also be sure that it is not a noisy environment and sleep well at night for there will be curfews so gates will not open or close at any time of the night. Unlike renting rooms, you just don't know if the owners will bring in some guest and have a little party or something. they have less policies at home most of the time and you can never be sure of your safety.

I lived in the dorm in the military. I really liked it and I would imagine the college living would be close to the same. I will have to say, living in the dorm, was great. We did a lot of things we shouldn't have but we got away with it. No one got hurt and we had parties every weekend. Sounds like college dorm life to me. Except you always hear about people getting hurt at college parties here. Following out of windows seems to be the big problem. I think they drink too much sit in the window sill and loose their balance and fall out the window. Sometimes they are on the second or third floor. I lived in a rented room after getting out of the military and it was not a whole lot of fun. You definitely need to know if you have a chemistry with the other people in the home or it can be tense. Coming and going as you choose is a lot more difficult because you don't want to disrupt the lives of the other house mates. Best Wishes!

I used to like it a whole lot. It used to be so much fun. I am afraid to stay in them anymore though because they are just not clean enough.

As a college student I never stayed in a hostel, I lived in a dorm. It was a very tiny room shared with someone else. Not the most pleasant experience but from what I hear when it comes to hostels it is the better option. I do know someone currently as a student who is staying at a hostel and although not ideal and not very clean, I have to say that it was the only option for him. Although he is not very happy and very uncomfortable he is doing the best he can looking forward to a brighter future. He says it is what he has to do and will do to assure he can continue to attend college and with the hopes for a very brighter future. It is all he can afford and he is doing quite well in school.
