Some colleges have dormitories (“dorms” for short). A dorm is a building with many rooms where students live. Dorms are usually much cheaper than apartments. All of the living costs are included in one price. They are also safe because there are security cameras and guards there. Almost all students have roommates during their first year at college, no matter where they live.

Si pitit ou vle viv nan yon dotwa, siyen yo byen bone. Genyen yon kantite lajan limite nan chanm yo.

If your child wants to live in a dorm, sign them up early. There are a limited amount of rooms.

Mande si dlo ak elektrisite yo enkli nan lwaye a. Si pitit ou gen yon Bet, mande si bilding lan pemet Bet kay. Panse sou sekirite ak ki jan femen li se lekol. Asire ou li kontra a avek anpil atansyon anvan ou siyen. Si ou pa kapab, jwenn yon zanmi oswa yon fanmi ki ka ede ou.

To find an apartment or house, look online at websites such as rent.com, craigslist.org, or on the school’s website. Take time to look at several places. Ask if water and electricity are included in the rent. If your child has a pet, ask if the building allows pets. Think about safety and how close it is to school. Make sure to read the contract carefully before you sign. If you can’t, find a friend or relative that can help you.
