Who are they?
They are undergraduate students between the ages of 18 to 26 years, and they come from different areas of Cyprus and from other countries as well. These students face accomondation difficulties during their studies. They believe there is not sufficient assistance on this issue throughout their studies. This luck of assistance combined with the chronic shortage of affortable accomondation results in anxiety, uncertainty, insecurity, and the waste of valuable time from their studies in trying to address it.
What they need?
For new students finding affordable accommodation is their main concern; they need correct orientation, induction and guidance from reliable resources about the accommodation issues. They have the need to find low-cost accommodation choices, which are suitable and affordable for an average person. Furthermore, they need to be given the complete picture about the available accommodation with the correct information about the location and the distance from the university.
