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.
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...)
