Hola Ron

When we say where something or a place is located we use "estar" not "ser,", even knowing that the location is permanent. This is a specific use of "estar". I hope this clarified your doubt.

Gracias,

If it has nothing to do with something being permanent, then what IS the rule?

Apparently you say "SOY estudiante".  Hopefully you will not be a student forever (unless you have to try to learn Spanish, apparently...)
