I wanted to live alone in a room with a kitchen and a shower in the unit, but there was a long waiting list for such rooms. I was even eager to pay extra for it, but I was told that there was no guarantee that I would wait for my turn before my semester in Estonia was over.
So as not to be left without a roof over my head, I just chose a room for two. Because of the pandemic, only one person is supposed to live in the room, but when I arrived, it turned out that I had a roommate. I wasn't upset, I have a good roommate.
When I studied in England, the dormitory provided all the necessities of life: dishes, linens, etc., although the rooms and kitchen were smaller. Be prepared to buy all the necessities of life at first. In my dorm, there are no dishes, no microwave, no blankets and pillows by default. But it doesn't bother me, the main thing is that I'm studying!
