Students at a university often have a choice of place to live. They may choose to live in the university dormitories, or they may choose to live in apartments in the community. Compare the advantages of living in university housing with the advantages of living in an apartment in the community. Where would you prefer to live? Give reasons for your preference.

One of the most important decisions for a college student is choosing where to live. The residence of a college student is where they spend most of their time resting, studying, and hanging out with friends. Although, living in an apartment in the community would provide anyone with privacy and independence. In my opinion, I prefer living in university housing because of the location, amenities, and culture. First, the university housing is within the chool parameter, which allows anyone get to school on time. Punctuality has always been important to me because I had been late numerous times in the past. This affected how people see me and ultimately, affected my grades, as I would miss important parts of the lecture. Second, there are certain advantages in living in the dormitory, which are the amenities being provided during your stay. For example, my university dormitory provides study room, laundry services, and gym. I would not have to travel distances to do my laundry or spend for a gym membership, when it is in the comfort of my dormitory. That shows how much additional expense I saved and how convenient it is to have all these services. Lastly, the people in the university dormitory have their own culture and events provided exclusively for students of the dorm. An example would be the one- week welcoming party held to welcome the freshmen students to the life in the dorm. I remember going to numerous parties, playing amazing race games, mingling with other dormitory residence, and watching concerts of local bands. In summary, the university dormitory provides an easy, convenient, and fun place to live in. People who would choose this residence can be sure their decision would not be regretful.
