Going off to college or university is an exciting time, but it can also be a stressful experience, especially for those who are leaving home for the first time. One of the most daunting tasks is finding a place to live. While there are many affordable rental options available, many students are looking for a hassle-free option. That’s where OBASA Suites’ furnished apartments for student residency become an excellent option. Not only do our apartments save time and stress by eliminating the need to buy furniture, but they also create a secure and convenient living space perfect for student needs.
1. Convenience and Time-Saving
One of the biggest advantages of choosing an OBASA Suites furnished apartment is the time saved and reduced stress. With most of the apartment essentials included, from furniture to dishes and linens, as well as your own in-suite laundry, it becomes easier to move in and focus on the more important aspects of student life. OBASA Suites are a popular choice for international students who may not have access to transportation for moving in furniture or who wish to avoid the hassle of purchasing furnishings and arranging for it to arrive – only to go through the process of selling it off once their studies are completed.
2. Security and Peace of Mind
Safety and security are top priorities for students when looking for a place to live. With our furnished apartments, the potential worry about strangers bringing in furniture that could contain bed bugs and other vermin is eliminated. OBASA takes immense pride in accommodating client needs, especially when it comes to proper cleaning protocols throughout all of our properties. We follow strict cleaning and sanitization processes that exceed industry standards to maintain a consistent positive experience for our guests.
The responsibility for maintenance falls upon the property owner, meaning that students can rest assured that minor maintenance concerns will be dealt with promptly. Additionally, the buildings have secure entrances that require codes or keys, making it difficult for uninvited guests to gain access.
Believe it or not, OBASA’s furnished apartments can be more affordable than unfurnished apartments. Students who are just starting out often have limited funds for furniture and household items. In these situations, furnished living spaces can be a cost-effective solution, especially if the student plans to live in the apartment only for a short time. With an added perk of having utilities included in the rent, makes our apartments even more economical. And if sharing rent expenses with a roommate is preferable, we also offer 2-bedroom furnished apartments at many of our property locations.
4. School Proximity
Imagine starting your day with a short commute, allowing you to maximize your time for studies, campus activities, and personal pursuits. As you set your sights on Regina or Saskatoon, OBASA Suites has the perfect blend of comfort and convenience awaiting your arrival – fully furnished apartments strategically located close to the heart of university and college campuses. This is a huge benefit for students who want to minimize commuting times and increase the amount of time spent on school responsibilities. When you’re situated close to your university, getting to classes on time becomes much more manageable.
5. Community Space
At OBASA Suites, we also have community spaces, meaning there are accessible areas such as fitness facilities, recreation rooms and outdoor spaces for barbecues and gatherings. These spaces serve as hubs of social engagement, where you can connect with fellow students, forge friendships that last a lifetime, and create a sense of belonging.
OBASA understands the unique needs of international students and is dedicated to providing a warm and welcoming home away from home. Finding a hassle-free option is crucial for students who are starting a new chapter in their lives. Apart from their financial advantages, furnished apartments allow for a more efficient move-in process, greater peace of mind, and a chance to live in close proximity to school. As students work hard to achieve their academic goals, the idea of having one less responsibility is welcome relief. At OBASA Suites, we offer an ideal solution for students who want to focus on their studies and enjoy their newfound freedom.
