Looking for Place Near Campus? Here’s Why College Students Should Consider Co-Living Spaces

More than the convenience, co-living spaces gives students the thrill of being independent.

Living in a dormitory is part of a university student’s rite of passage, especially for those who want to avoid long commutes and be closer to campus.

But why not take dorm living a notch higher and consider co-living spaces instead?

Halfway between a dormitory and a condominium, co-living spaces are ideal residences for students for these reasons:

It’s right within the heart of the city.

Living closer to campus means more precious time to sleep, review for exams, attend extra-curricular activities or complete course requirements. Co-living spaces gives students the chance to do just that as they are mapped out to be minutes away from the city’s commercial business district. Located along Amorsolo Street in Makati, The Flats Amorsolo, for example, is close to schools such as Assumption College San Lorenzo, Don Bosco Technical Institute, Asian Institute of Management, and Ateneo Law School.

The Grid in San Antonio, Makati is close to the Makati Medical Center Nursing School and Centro Escolar University Makati.

Not only that but you’re also close to parks, malls, museums, and cafes you can explore.

You could share a room with your friends.

Are your high school best friends going to the same university as you? Co-living spaces have twin, triple, and quadruple sharing rooms you can lease as a group. Adjusting to college life is so much easier when you have trusted friends you can share experiences with on and off campus; skip the getting to know you stage and head right down to settling in.

Rent is affordable.

Compared to a condominium, rent in a co-living space is something a budget-conscious student will appreciate. Room rates at the Flats Amorsolo start at P6,717.50 per person per month and considering the amenities, it’s a good deal. Which leads us to the next reason…

There’s study-life balance.

Unlike in a regular student dormitory that offers just the basics, co-living spaces make sure students have a well-rounded lifestyle.

Doing well in school starts with staying healthy. Co-living spaces such as My Town (near BGC) have fully equipped gyms, an infinity lap pool, a boxing studio, and yoga decks.

You can also celebrate finals week and the end of the semester at My Town’s KTV rooms, in-house cinema, and recreation areas.

Avail of regular room cleaning services for times when you need to take a break from adulting.

You’ll meet like-minded people.

Unlike condominiums where privacy is the priority, co-living spaces are designed to encourage sharing and socialization. My Town offers regular movie screenings, workout classes, creative workshops, roof deck parties, and outreach programs to foster a sense of community – you’ll be among people from different backgrounds, but with the same interests as you. Isn’t that exciting?

College students like you are excited to get out of your comfort zone and be independent; staying at a co-living space is a great first step.
