STUDENT WANTS TO MOVE OUT FROM FAMILY BUT IS WORRIED ABOUT RENT PRICES

With some savings and 1.5 years left of uni, I’m thinking of moving out due to family issues.

I can’t live in peace, can’t study at home, and always have to stay-out and come back late. I have been looking for rooms to rent but when I have to make a rent deposit it scares me and makes me hesitate.

For my budget, I’m able to afford to share a room only.

Are there other places to rent in sg other than student hostels which aren’t that cheap?

Here are what netizens think:

  • If you are okay with sharing room, i think there are quite a lot of options on carousell and facebook groups. Rent ranging from $300-500? Alternatively if you are from low income family, you can try speaking to FAS and see if they can get u bursary for┬ástaying on campus. Good luck and jia you!
  • If u are a guy, don’t even need money. Campus have lockers and showers. Many empty lecture halls for u to rest at night. Really is quite safe for a guy. Many charging outlets available to charge your hp and laptop.Laundry just use laundromats. Use your time to either study or work to save up.
  • Use your money wisely. Back in my days, i know of a guy who saved up high 5-figure just by living prudently throughout NS & Uni. Didn’t socialize much but he worked hard to give himself a head start despite his modest background. When without your own place, go mininalist don’t cling on to too many stuffs. As a young man can take the hardship one. Just be positive and embrace the grind.

Once u graduate, get a good paying job, save up 2-3 years, then can buy a small studio condo to have your own place. Studio is $600k. 25% downpayment is $150k. If u start working on it and start saving right now, things will become better for u before even realised it. Our decisions today will shape how we live 5yrs from now. Stay strong and I wish u all the best.

  • if u are a girl, then slightly more difficult since need to think of safety issue spending nights alone in campus. But as a girl don’t be shy of using your natural advantage. Many guys out there willing to spend on u and be your knight in shining armour. Not asking u to sell yourself to guys, just need to string them along. Sometimes in life just have to do whatever it takes to survive. Moral conscience can come in when u are in a better situation.
