Looking for the perfect student room, studio or apartment can make the time leading up to the first semester much more stressful than it has to be. You probably start by doing a Google search for the best Nottingham student accommodation — or accommodation near the university you will be attending. But the thousands of pages of search results will be as daunting as trying to get an overview of how much each individual option will actually end up costing you.
Finding good student accommodation in Nottingham or any other university city in the UK on a student budget is both challenging and confusing. So I would suggest that instead of making aimless Google searches on, say, Accommodation in Leicester for students, you should start by writing down your criteria for where you want to live. As a former university student, I assure you that a bit of planning is necessary to able to stick to your budget.
The best student accommodation in Leicester is close to De Montford. And that counts for most major UK university cities, living closer to campus means less monthly expenses for public transport. So a higher rent studio near campus and the city centre will often be cheaper than a lower rent studio further away, once all costs are counted. Plus it’s a lot more comfortable to be walking distance from campus, living in places like Edge Apartments or Primus Place just 0.1 miles from De Montford, than having to commute every day.
Plan your monthly expenses in advance!
For many students, renting student accommodation is their first time living away from home. That means that getting an overview of just how many expenses you have every single month when renting a room, apartment or studio can be slightly tricky. Remember that you not only have to pay rent, but also electricity bills, water, heating, internet, laundry bills, TV license, insurance, etc. So if you only compare the price of rent for the different areas you look to rent accommodation in, you may end up with a much more expensive solution then you think. Therefore I suggest that you have a look at StudentFM.co.uk where you find a selection of student accommodation properties located right next to major UK universities and where everything is included in the rent. — You will not find more transparent rental terms than that.
