Have you been accepted to your dream study at the University of Chester? — Congratulations! Chester is a great city to live and study in for both local and international students, offering a great range of enjoyable opportunities during both day and night time. And as any former university student will tell you; getting the most out of your student years requires finding the perfect balance between academic and social activities.
Another thing former Uni-students will tell you is that finding the right place to live is one of the most important things you need to figure out before the start of the semester. In fact, the sooner you find a suitable place the better, because there is high competition for luxury student accommodation in Chester at the beginning of every new semester.
So that brings us to what constitutes luxury Chester student accommodation and why you should be thinking about luxury on a student budget. — Does that even make sense? It does, hang with me, and I’ll explain why “cheap” accommodation most likely will be very expensive for you. Especially if you are not familiar with the rental market in the UK.
By luxury we are of course not talking about marble floors or hiring a butler. But about living in a newly build student community less than a mile from your new campus. Living close to campus will save you a small fortune on public transport to and from class. Especially since living outside the city centre means you will be relying on a bus to take you to both class and social activities in the evenings and on the weekends. All those trips add up and defeats the purpose of low cost student living, since you’ll be spending more n transport than you save by living far from campus.
Other “hidden” costs of local or international student accommodation in the UK is utility bills, insurance, laundry visits, wifi connection… All costs that often are not be included in your rent and ends up blowing your budget.
Instead I would recommend an ALL-INCLUSIVE solution, where you don’t have to worry about extra bills, expensive recalculations or how much heating, water or electricity you use. Such a solution is exactly what StudentFM offers with their two brand new student accommodation communities; Northgate Point and Northgate Studios on Trafford Street. Both offer the perfect ERASMUS student accommodation in Chester because you have a clear and transparent overview of what you are going to pay every month during your studies — one bill and no surprises! That is what I mean by luxury student accommodation.
