The size of college apartment depends upon the number of bedrooms and occupants. Some college apartments are designed for a single occupant, thus it will be smaller. Some college apartments have 2 or three bedrooms to accommodate many occupants who will be sharing the unit. They will have common kitchen, living room and bathroom.
For a single student, the standard size of a cheap apartment is about 40 square meters. A single large space serves as the living, sleeping and kitchen quarters with a small separate room as the bathroom. The kitchen is not necessarily marked off from the rest of the room. If it is a furnished apartment, you will find a stove, a small refrigerator, sink and some small counter and cabinet spaces. As a renter, you will not be able to host parties because of limited space. You can only comfortably prepare and cook individual meals. However, if the unit is not furnished, you have to bring your own stove and kitchen ware.
