We want to give you useful tips to help you to find your ideal apartment as when you searching for student off campus housing!
If you live in Taipei, the map should be very familiar to you.
There are areas that we recommend you to seek for your next off-campus accommodation.
Lots of international students at NTNU, NTU, CCU would rent a room that closes to campus. We recommended students to choose places around the red line. NTNU MTC(Mandarin Training Center), NTU ICLP (International Chinese Language Program), CCU MLC (Mandarin Learning Center) are at central Taipei City and only takes a short time to take subway to the center. Most of our students would not choose places that any further than those stations like Dongmen MRT station, Guting MRT station and Gongguan MRT station. And red line would be convenient to anywhere in Taipei. Even just ride U-Bike or walking can easily get to the campus.
We also help students to find the ideal apartments that they love while helping them to choose apartments that closed to those MRT stations, so it’d be cheap and convenient.
NTNU, CCU are very close to downtown Taipei, so we would suggest international students to find apartments in Zhongzheng District and Daan District. The subway is always helpful for students to get around Taipei.
