STUDENT RESIDENCE: AMENITIES YOUR ROOM SHOULD HAVE
The idea of setting up your own space can be exciting and daunting at the same time. When you are off to college, it is a bag of mixed emotions. You are going to be away from home, from your own space. This is also the opportunity to create your own space and mark. But it is undeniable that the comfort of our bed is mostly unmatchable. When you are looking for a student housing space, you want something that you can call your own for the next few years to come. Something that is an extension of you because you will be calling this place your home now. The kind of room that you will choose will have a deep impact on it. The Arc University of Manitoba Residence was designed to provide the students with a lifestyle that will provide them with comforts of their home away from home. When you are looking at rooms to call home for the next few years, these are the amenities your room should have.
The bed is quite the basic amenity that your room should have. You really don’t want to consider carrying your bed to college. Having a bed in your room will only make it easier. There are XL beds in each room. Each bed has a floating nightstand. However, you can choose your suite style. There are four configurations that you can choose from. They are Single Bedroom, Double Bedroom shared, two-bedroom and four-bedroom.
The Arc rooms have either a kitchen or a kitchenette with them. You are going to need basic appliances like a refrigerator and microwave. These two appliances can really make life simpler. The larger rooms also have an oven. All the kitchen and kitchenettes do have a cooktop. You can make your favourite meals whenever you want to.
Staying in the bed all the time can make one feel lethargic. It is always best to differentiate spaces. Beds are highly inviting, especially when you are tired. Having a couch in the room will help you have separate spaces to do your tasks. You can sit on your couch and catch up on your reading or watch your favourite show.
A study table is an integral part of a student’s life. There should definitely be a study table. Yes, it is possible to work from your bed or the couch, but it is not feasible in the long run. Having a desk will help you to have a designated workspace. However, a chair is not provided so you are required to bring your own.
When you have a room of your own, you will need a lock. In the age of lock and key, losing a key was really easy. Keeping that in mind there are smart doors that have been installed in the residence. The electronic locks come with an NFC smartphone option. This will take locking your room to a whole new level and make it easier at the same time.
