Do schools act as an intermediary in all matters?
Yes, Many schools completely handle the renting of the apartment, repairs, and all utility procedures. However, if you throw a late night party and make your downstairs neighbors angry, we’ll have a hard time preventing them from yelling at you (or calling the police). Certain minor maintenance issues like cleaning out drains and changing light bulbs would be taken care of by yourself, as you would in your own home country. The school will obviously provide guidance as to where to buy what you need.
