what to look for in your student accommodation for 2021

With many students on certain courses being forced to work from home throughout 2020 and early 2021 many will be looking to the future and wondering what kind of accommodation they can get in!

Student accommodation does not have to be cheap and there are plenty of options out there that could support a more cared for lifestyle.

In today’s blog, we take a look at what to look out for when browsing student accommodation in 2021 if you are looking for more luxurious accommodation.

  • Check the speed of the internet

If you are a student that is going to be doing a lot of work from home then the speed of the internet is going to be a big factor within the decision-making process. Faster internet will often come at a higher cost, but it will help you get more work done! If you are unsure about the quality of the internet make sure you get in touch with the landlord to find out.

  • Is there a cleaning service provided?

Cleaning service can make all the difference when it comes to the quality of your stay within student accommodation. If there is one provided then it could save you a lot of time, and if you are not a big fan of cleaning then this is even better news!

Just make sure that you keep the flat in a relatively clean condition. This will help you when it comes to getting your deposit back when you move out.

  • What is the student accommodation area like?

Location is very important when it comes to working out where to move as a student. Whilst some student accommodation on the cheaper end may be in less savoury parts of town others may be in very hip areas! Make sure you check before you move. When looking at student accommodation options you should also look into other factors such as the distance from the campus, distance to public transport and the availability of bars and restaurants nearby.

Ask yourself these 3 questions and you will know what you want

These 3 questions will go a long way to helping you decide which kind of student accommodation you want to live in throughout the next year. Make sure you consider other areas like price, size and upkeep costs to work out what the best option is for you.
