Well, i believe a 10-15 min walk is reasonable to reach the college. Bandar Sunway is at least 30 minutes walk....TRY NOT TO. Especially during hot sun or raining day...very inconvenience.
There are a lot of residential house catering to student. They convert the whole house to smaller partition to have more single room. I heard there are maid coming to take care of the basic stuffs like toilet, living room & etc too. It is all around the college area.
My Place is really right at the doorsteps and then Asia Cafe is there. Convenient wise...almost 100%.
If staying nearby, your son can go back to class more easily. Sometimes gap between each class is quite long, he can even go back to cook or even take a quick nap too.
My advice, drive down to the college and park your car. Walk along the shoplot area. There are lot's of advertisement for room to let. And also walk to nearby residential house...look out for signboard hanging outside.
I believe your son going to be there for some time, right! The first place of stay normally is not the last place to stay anyway. Sooner or later, he will find his own gang (or maybe girlfriend ) and start to look for a better place.
Live Happily & Leave Peacefully.
