What to do if you find yourself in an apartment with an international student roommate
The housing industry has long struggled with finding students who will pay their rent, but in the wake of Trump’s executive order restricting students from entering the country, the problem is growing.
“If you’re a U.S. citizen, if you’re an international graduate, or if you have a degree from a U-M school, and you’re in an area that’s already very popular, you’re going to be in the rental market, because you’re already paying a fair amount of rent,” said Michael Hauslohner, vice president of research and policy at the Center for American Progress, a left-leaning think tank.
“And I think that that’s going to continue to be the case, in large part because of Trump.
He’s trying to create some uncertainty for prospective students.”
According to a study released last year by the Urban Institute, which studies housing affordability, the cost of renting an apartment in the U.K. is one of the highest in Europe and the U-S.
The cost of a one-bedroom apartment in New York City, the United States and Australia, was the same or slightly lower than in the United Kingdom.
Hauslshofner says he and his colleagues were surprised to see how many U.k. students were looking for housing in the capital.
“The most obvious reason is the uncertainty around the UCLC decision,” he said.
“It’s a very small number of students and it’s a small group of people, so it’s going be really hard to know whether you’re actually going to have a rental or not.”
Hauslfohner said many students from Europe were choosing to live in the city because they had already left for school, or because they were on their way back from Europe and needed to save money.
“We’re seeing a lot of people from Europe who are just looking for a place to live, and it doesn’t seem to be a big concern to them,” he added.
“They’re staying in places they already know, and the quality of their living space is pretty good.”
He said the number of U.s. students in residence was also declining, with only about a third of international students in U.c.s homes in the third quarter of 2018.
According to the Urban study, the number in the fourth quarter was slightly higher than in 2019, but only a fraction of U-m students had their own rooms.
Henslohners said he wasn’t surprised by the high number of people looking for apartments in New Yorkers.
“There are a lot more U. graduates in residence than people think,” he explained.
“You don’t want to just leave your parents or your job and move out to New York and get a job. “
You want to move into a place that’s comfortable and has good facilities and you know your roommates.” “
You don’t want to just leave your parents or your job and move out to New York and get a job.

Students from other states and countries could still move to New Yorkers for a semester or two to work in the tech industry, Hauslojns said.
But they would likely have to spend more money than U. students do on their room and board.
“In many ways, there’s just a greater degree of uncertainty than if you were in residence,” he pointed out.
“As a UB student, it’s very easy to have your life disrupted by Trump.”
Students have had their housing options narrowed to the smallest available space in the Capital, said Jennifer McBride, the president of NYU’s College of Arts and Sciences, who said she doesn’t think students from out of town should feel obligated to move to the city.
“What students need to realize is that housing is really hard, especially when it comes to rent,” she said.
The university estimates there are about 3,000 international students living in its dormitories, about half of whom are studying computer science or a related field.
But the average price of a single-bedroom unit in the building was $1,200, according to the college’s website.
For those who are not students, the average rent for a room in the dormitory is $1.25 an hour, and $2.50 an hour for a two-bedroom.
The College of Staten Island has a similar policy.
“Even if you are in a two or three-bedroom suite, that is an increase,” said McBride.
“That’s what it’s about: you have to make the best of it, but there are certain constraints.”
“It would be a really bad idea for students to feel like they’re the only ones in this market,” she added.
