Big metropolitans are always fun to visit, you find your favorite clubs, a lot of people and facilities to entertain yourself. But in most of the cases, such cities wouldn’t be suitable for students to live their entire university life in. Most students in leading Universities are found to move to the outskirts of the city to live in a calm place, out from the hustle and bustle of the city. These sprawling urban areas tend to discomfort the students when they opt to live there.
A huge factor involved in this animosity is basically the cost of living. Even though other factors like pollution, noise, and accommodation persists, most of the students fail to manage their finance with the limited income they get from part-times. This holds mostly true for international students who need to pay quite a lot more fees than the natives in Universities.
These are some awesome destinations rated by students all over the world, which are small student cities, where you would rush to live.
