If you are currently planning to study abroad in Malaysia, you can expect to spend monthly RM1, 200 on your living expenses including accommodation.

Especially to freshmen students who are entering Malaysia for the first time have to make a tough decision of choosing an accommodation there. Like European countries, the accommodation is modernly styled and furnished but at much more affordable rates. The types of accommodation available in Malaysia for international students are enlisted in the guide below:

 

On Campus Residence

  • Residence Halls

  • Hostels

Most of the public universities and branch campuses of international universities in Malaysia offer on campus residence to international students. In fact, on campus residence is offered to international students first before local students as the international students are not familiar to the country. The international admission offices of universities have an accommodation department which specifically works to guide international students in finding an apt accommodation for themselves and explains them the facilities available and monthly rents. You will contact the accommodation office for international students of your university prior to entering Malaysia and they will guide in length what type of facilities and accommodation type in their on campus residence they are offering. The on campus residence has two types of accommodation in Malaysia:

 

Residence Halls

Residence halls are typically a top pick for international students. The residence halls have facility of renting a single room or shared room according to your budget.

Ideally, you must apply for on campus residence as soon as you receive an acceptance letter from the university before the rooms get occupied.

 

Hostels

Another type of on campus residence is hostels. Living in hostels is also quite popular for international students in Malaysia. The hostels have same facilities as dormitories; you can live in a single room or a shared room.

 

Facilities:

The rents depend on the facilities, size of the rooms and location of the hostel. The communal facilities include: kitchenette, laundry room, study room, sitting lounge and free internet. The private facilities will include attached bathroom with each room, mattress, bed, study table and chair and closet. The environment of hostels is just like college hostels and all the students would be restricted to follow rules. The utility bills are included in the rent. A hostel is not as larger as residence halls in fact it is typically smaller in area. Climate in Malaysia is hot therefore air conditioning is also a living perquisite there. .
