In London, there are many different types of Student Accommodation to suit every budget, style and preference. The main types of student accommodation consist of private student halls, house or flat shares, bedsits/studios and lodgings.
Sharing a house in London can be brilliant, but there are a few things to consider before signing your contract. Choosing the right people to live with is important for your wellbeing, studies and overall life in London, and while it is ideal to find friends to live with, this isn’t always easy if you’re moving to a new location.
Spend time discussing what you all want out of your living situation as housemates. It’s important to make sure that your lifestyles don’t affect one another. This discussion should include rent and bills and other monetary commitments you may want to share, as well as location, aesthetics, amenities, facilities, room sizes, and/or parking.
Don’t immediately accept the first place you see, make sure you look around before you decide and do your research. View a house in person before signing, pictures can be very different to the real thing, and it is best to experience the house first-hand.
Create a minimum and maximum figure of the amount you are willing to pay for rent and bills, this will help make financial decisions when weighing your options.
Know what type of place you want to live in and what area. Check out how easy it is to commute to the campus and back, and how close you are to amenities, such as shops and healthcare practices.
Unless you are happy to relocate multiple times, remember to keep in mind that you will need accommodation for however long you are studying.
Make sure your deposit will be protected in a recognised scheme, and only pay the agreed rent and deposit amount – it is now illegal to charge referencing or agency fees: gov.uk/government/collections/tenant-fees-act.
