Sheffield is one of the cheaper places to live and study in compared to other British university cities. However, that does not mean that university isn’t expensive — it is! So finding the best possible deal on your student accommodation in Sheffield will still save you a lot of money over the course of your studies.
To save the most possible money on your accommodation costs you have to take a closer look at the options you have before making a decision. HINT: The cheapest student accommodation is NOT the room with the lowest rent. And here is why:
When you only shop accommodation by the rent there will be a long list of “hidden” costs. To keep the rent looking as cheap as possible many landlords include as few utility fees as possible in the rent — meaning you will have to sign your own utility contracts with the provider. That is not only an extra bill you will receive every month, but you will also have to pay a number of registration, activation and installation fees at the beginning of the contract.
It is IMPORTANT to count ALL these extra costs before comparing prices to know which room, studio or student apartment is actually the cheapest. On top of that you will have to know approximately how much water, electricity, heating, etc., you will be using to avoid expensive recalculation bills blowing your budget at the end of the year.
Besides water, heating, electricity, you will also need a wifi-subscription to be able to study at home and on the weekend when the university study halls and library is closed. AND DON’T FORGET CONTENT INSURANCE; when you rent a room you will also have to sign up for an obligatory a content insurance.
Once you have counted all these costs you have at least an estimate of how much the accommodation you are looking at will cost you. To be certain how much you will pay you have the option to look for all-inclusive student accommodation in Sheffield.
