Usually colleges offer on-campus accommodations, the hostels are also an option for the students which are completely on the first-come-first-serve basis. We usually advice our students to opt for on-campus accommodation preferably for the initial days as it gives time to students to absorb new environment and staying on campus gives them opportunity to know more people.
Most of countries have the option like shared-hostel with attached kitchen and fixed meal plans for students who don’t want to live on-campus.
