Moving to a new city can be a little daunting. But with so many accommodation options to choose from, finding the perfect room for you has never been easier here with CRIC.

As of September, we are joining forces with ARU, this will open the door to even more accommodation options for all our students. En-suite to on-campus, living with a host family or have a whole apartment all to yourself! Whatever your budget, location, or facility requirements may be, we can find the right place for you. With our detailed knowledge, all you have to do is to remember your toothbrush!
