ALL 21/22 BOOKINGS COME WITH COVID RENT GUARANTEE
Which uni accommodation is the best for you? It’s one of the biggest things you need to decide on when coming to university so it’s important to understand what might be best for you. There are many different types of accommodation so let’s break down the options;
A studio apartment is usually a self-contained independent unit within a student accommodation building. Like our rooms in Kiln and Poulson House you usually have your own private en-suite and kitchenette area so that you are fully self-contained. The benefits of having a studio apartment are that it’s your own private space to escape to, and get work down in peace and quiet, and of course having your own bathroom is a great advantage!
We also offer larger studio apartments that are perfect for couples who want to live together. The Large Studio rooms are set up to be DDA compliant. Any student booking one of these rooms due to having a disability is able to do so at £119 per week (Poulson House) or £129 (Kiln House).
In Kiln House for 21/22 we will also be offering Deluxe Studio apartments, with features such as deluxe mattress topper, notice board and feature wall design with an exclusive tv/games room on each floor to socialise in. Kiln House also benefits from a large television area on the ground floor and Sky Sports and Movies will be available to watch. Rents from only £129 per week
A shared flat, like the ones we have in London House,are perfect for anyone wishing to share with friends. Often you will have to share a bathroom, kitchen and living room with other students, though at London House we do have options for how many people you share with (from just two beds or up to five bed apartments).
If you are on a budget sharing is a great option to consider as shared apartments are very budget-friendly, for example a 51 week contract starting from just £99 per week for a 5-bedroom flat. Shared flats are also a great way to meet new students and make new friends.
Pros and Cons
Living with your friends at University can be a fantastic experience, you could end up with loads of friends as you meet your new flatmates and their friends become your friends – you might also end up with a study buddy to bounce ideas off. One of the hardest parts of living away from home might be not having anyone to share things with – sharing a flat means that there’s the likelihood of always having a roomie to talk to.
Studios are perfect for anyone that might wish to have their own space; you don’t have to worry about cleaning up after anyone else or your flatmates eating your food! If you are worried about the social aspect with a studio apartment there are shared common rooms in all our buildings where you can kick back, watch TV, work out or challenge your friends to a game of pool – these rooms are open to all our students 24 hours a day! There’s also the benefit of a secure outdoor courtyard space at Kiln House where you can enjoy some fresh air and relax outside.
Which Uni Accommodation will you choose?
Hopefully this will have given you a better idea of some of the types of accommodation that are available. It’s up to you to decide which appeals to you more and that you think you’ll be happiest in – whatever you chose you are still sure to have a great university experience.
