Top-5 Reasons to Choose a Residence over an Apartment
Living as a student can be stressful – especially if they choose the wrong place to set their roots. With the demanding schedules that fill the contemporary student’s mind, a student residence center is clearly a step above the hassle and problem-filled life of apartment renting.
Why? Let’s have a look……..
Living in a student residence can definitely have its perks over apartment life. Here at St. Cathy’s, there is a wide assortment of hosted activities ranging from sports nights, community dinners and even video gaming festivals (Yes, you heard that right). These things are simply not available in the majority of apartment complexes around Montreal. With all of the self-evident social advantages of residence living, why would anyone want to pay to experience dull apartment life? Yeah, I don’t know either.
The stress-inducing task of remembering to pay for your lights, cable, phone, water, and internet fees can easily break the spirit of many apartment renters. After all, that energy should rightly be focused on accomplishing academic success. Residence centers take care of that by offering these amenities all inclusively. Because of this, students are able to spend more time worrying about their grades, and not digging for that light bill they misplaced.
Moving can be EXTREMELY stressful. Don’t worry! The rooms at St. Cathy’s also come furnished with beds, desks, chairs, microwaves, refrigerators, flat-screen TVs, satellite cable, and landlines with local calling included. Plus, they also provide wireless internet all throughout the building. Sounds awesome, right?
Location and Community
When contemplating where to place down one’s college roots, student residence centers should definitely fall under the college student’s radar. As opposed to the unknown population of any given apartment building, living at St. Cathy’s is simply more suitable for students. As soon as they arrive, the student’s life will be filled with new faces and friendly people. It’s a great place to start the next phase in their educational journey.
Plus, you can’t beat our location. St. Cathy’s is located only a few moments from the majority of major universities in the area. When considering the huge role punctuality plays on a college student’s life, the ease and practicality of resident-life easily shines above apartment living.
When parents are forced to experience the inevitable task of setting their children free on the road to independence and educational success, safely is most-definitely on the majority of their minds. Residence centers help to ease that pain with complex security camera set-ups, new-age security systems and caring staff members. In St. Cathy’s, Residence Assistants are there to help students with any problems they may be facing when transitioning into university life. They also ensure the community is running smoothly, thus helping parents to remove one more entry on their “worry list”.
