    Accomodation in Cebu for Southwestern

    Advertisements



    Hi all,

    I've been accepted to study in Southwestern University this year but have been told that they don't have any accommodation on site.

    As I'm in UK I was just wondering what the best way to go about finding accommodation would be, and is it best to do it once there?

    Would be grateful if anyone in Cebu could give me information on prices and things I should expect.

    Many thanks in advance.

    I would just say go there and book a hotel for a week or two and then go looking for apartments next to the school.

    Thank you for the reply, yeah, I think that's what I'll do, any guidelines on what prices I should be looking at? Just so I know I don't end up overpaying.

    Just use AGODA.COM - there you can see reviews and prices and even book online.

    P4000 - P6000 for a studio type apartment or dorm near the school (Urgello, Private Rd., etc)

    P2500 - P4000 a little farther (Sanciangko St, Tabuan market). If price isnt an issue, consider staying near the school. Note that snatchers do operate around the school area because SWU students have more money haha

    Dont book anything online. Stay at a pension house when you arrive and find accommodation within a week. Talk to old ladies on the street - they love to help, and they know where the vacant apartments are.
