As you are probably aware, renting a place to stay in the centre of any university city can end up being quite expensive. Especially if you are looking for student accommodation right next the university. However, there are ways to get a really good deal on your De Montfort University accommodation as a student. You just have to take a moment to consider all the living expenses you are going to have and calculate what the actual cost of living and studying in Leicester will be. Remember that you will not only have to pay for rent, but also electricity, heating, internet, content insurance, transport to and from the university, etc.
For example, if you find a flat at a low price of rent, but it is so far away from the university that you need to rely on daily public transport to class, the total cost of your De Montfort University student accommodation might end up being more expensive than a flat close to campus. The same is true for older studios, that even though the price of rent might seem attractive, the utilities will likely be more expensive. Older buildings require more heating due to inferior insulation, which can result in unpleasant surprises during the colder months of British winter.
To avoid that uncertainty, you can consider renting a room, studio or shared apartment in a modern and newly renovated student complex right next De Montford University. That way you can use what you save on transport and utilities to rent a luxurious high quality studio at a very affordable price. DMU is right in the city centre, so not only do you save the costs of commuting to class, you also save transport if you want to go out in the evening or on the weekend, or participate on after hours student activities around campus. — These are expenses that many new students forget to consider, but will add up over the course of the semester.
A great choice would be Edge Apartments on Jarrow Street or Primus Place on Gateway Street. Both of these offer spacious and modern student rooms to let at DMU. Between them these student communities offer approximately 300 top quality student accommodations, and thereby an active and thriving student community with rich opportunity for making friends. — But how can you afford such luxury? Both student complexes offers large, fully furnished studio and rooms including a fully equipped kitchen and en-suite bathroom. Conveniences that usually are out of most students’ budgets.
But because both complexes offer all-inclusive Leicester student accommodation contracts including all utility costs, internet access, and content insurance, their tenants get professional administrators to negotiate all their living costs for them — meaning they get a really good price. That the overall cost of living in one of these student communities is kept much lower than you could arrange on your own when all costs are counted.
Primus Place and Edge Apartments offer Chinese student apartments at De Montfort University. Located just 0.1 miles from the main campus, they make up the perfect setting for foreign students to get comfortable in Leicester city centre.
