Here are some of the reasons previous students have decided to stay in halls:
No additional deposit to pay (its carried over from last year)
There’s no need to wait to get your deposit back, carrying it over is much more convenient!
Unlike private accommodation there is no joint tenancy agreement so you're only responsible for your own rent!
Worried about that flaky friend? No need if you are living in halls, you won’t have to stump up and pay when they go walk about or argue over paying bills as it is all done individually.
No hassle and awkward conversations needed that sometimes come with house hunting
No need to fight over the only room with an en-suite, everyone gets the same.
No bills to pay
All your bills are included, so no walking round in the dark with a million layers on to keep warm…
24-hour residential support, security and maintenance
Living in halls you can be totally independent, but if something goes wrong there is always someone on hand. Make life easy, not complicated.
Make new friends or live with old ones - it's up to you
Fill a flat with a group of friends or join a new flat and create a new social circle. If you’re worried about being the ‘old student' in a corridor of freshers, you can always request to live with people at a similar level and we can see what we can do.
Private accommodation contracts mean you’re usually tied into a 52 week contract, sometimes meaning you may be paying for somewhere when you’re not actually there. In halls you can pay for as long as you need the flat (no summer cost when you’ve moved back home).
