Students residing in the hostel sign an annual contract and are expected to follow the rules of the hostel; which include the closing of the hostel gate at 11.00 pm, registering all visitors to the hostel, not making noise and showing consideration to fellow residents in the hostel. The hostel also has round the clock security provision for safety of every student staying in the hostel.

Contract terms

Sign a contract! No matter how nice the landlord or landlady appears to be when you are renting the apartment, make sure you sign a contract. Never specify your responsibilities to each other via verbal agreements. It is necessary for all the students to sign an agreement with the landlord as it will be submitted to the local Migration authorities as a proof of residence for the issuance of the Residence Permit.

Before renting an apartment carefully inspect the flat to make sure that everything is fine and it meets all your requirements. Keep in mind that you can bargain the price; at least you can try to get some discount, but be prepared that the owner might say that he/she already gives you the flat for a special price

Final Advice:

Students are advised to be conduct themselves orderly while living in a rented apartment in Georgia. Yes! Many neighbourhoods in Georgia are safe for foreigners, however, we still advice Students living off campus to take never take their personal security for granted as no amount of security is too much.

Let’s help you do it.
