Students should make their accommodation a priority
29th Aug 2012
Students who are set to head off to university this year should be certain that they are making the acquisition of accommodation, most likely properties to rent, a priority at this time of year.
Next month will see the new batch of students for this year head off to university, with £9,000 tuition fees being a worry for many, so it is vital to make sure they do not have too much to stress about.
Jason Geall, managing director at The Student Room.co.uk, said that it can be a stress free experience to rent UK property before heading to university, as long as students take the time to look for what is right for them, with seeking advice from those in the know a vital consideration.
He also advised that it can be good to get out and about in the town or city that new undergraduates will be living in, to give them a taste of the place, and let them find somewhere they can call home for the next three years.
"Actually get down to where you're heading and take it in - it's common practice among universities to have open days, so do take advantage of those. Go and get a feel for the area and think about whether you want to live in halls of residence or find student accommodation elsewhere."
