Most students who go to university will spend their first year in student accommodation in some shape or form. Although, there are other options, such as living at home or finding a shared house, for you first year, the best option is always student rooms or halls. Here are a few reasons why you should definitely choose student accommodation in your first year at university.
- For many, university is the first time they will have moved out of their parents and now have to face independence and greater responsibility. This can be made much more difficult if you choose to move into a shared student house straight away. Moving into accommodation makes everything much simpler as things like electricity bills, water bills, internet providers and building maintenance are all handled by your student accommodation provider. At Study Inn, we make sure that all students are provided with an all inclusive experience, which will allow you to enjoy your first year at university with a lot less of the stress that comes with living on your own.
- If you find a shared house for your first year, you might only be living with around 3 – 5 other people. If you move into student accommodation, however, you will be living in a building with a lot of more likeminded students. This gives you great opportunities to meet people, which is especially important during your first year as you this is when you will be starting out in a completely new city.
- Even though you will be living with more people in a house, privacy and security are actually much better in student accommodation. You have a lock on your door, which is a privilege you might not have in a shared student house. At Study Inn, there is 24 hour security available who are always there to make sure you feel safe and comfortable for the duration of your stay.
- Student housing can get expensive with everything that needs to be bought in order to have a functioning house. At Study Inn’s student accommodation, a lot of important things are supplied for you. Bedding, kitchen equipment, games consoles, televisions, table tennis tables and furniture. This can save you a lot of money in your first year, when you will never every help you can get when it comes to budgeting.
