Many students will look for abroad programs which can be similar or linked to the college experience when it comes to living arrangements.
In many partner schools however, these college type arrangements are very rare to find.
Placement via your school
Most institutions will place the incoming student into student living arrangement where you either will get your own room or you will share with another student.
Always look carefully at what the non academic arrangements will be at your abroad university, in particular the accommodation. You need to be clear and make sure you are aware of what kind of experience you are getting yourself into.
And always remember, it's a different country to where you are from so be understanding.
