Indians are increasingly seeing Europe as a favourable destination for their “Study Abroad’ mission. Reports suggest that out of 5.53 lakh Indian students who went abroad for higher studies, approximately 52000 went to Europe in 2015. According to Ambassador Alexandre Ziegler, “In the first six months of this year, there has been an increase of 40 per cent in the number of Indian students going to study in France over the previous year’s corresponding year, in which 4,500 students made the trip.” In 2015, the number of Indian student studying in Germany grew by 24.3% to 11,655. The lure of European Universities can be attributed to a host of factors such as world-class universities that offer cutting-edge education, the ability to work during the program, lower fees and work permits amongst others. Though European Universities are increasingly being chosen by Indian students, and vice versa, housing is one of the first problems that Indian students face when going to Europe. Like any other country, finding student housing in Europe can be difficult if a student is clueless about who to approach and where to look for the perfect housing.
