Since you’re unfamiliar with the surroundings abroad, you should always check the safety of the neighborhood where you wish to live.

The rent amount varies depending on many factors, such as:
For example, the rent per person for a shared apartment among 4 students in New York can be more than the rent for a private apartment in the suburbs.
