When the time came to house hunt my housemates and I thought we knew it all and would be fine doing it by ourselves, but we were so wrong. Here is what went wrong for us and how to avoid making the same mistakes:
I am currently in my third year at Leeds Beckett University. It was not a difficult decision for me to choose to stay with Unipol for my final year. For the first two years of my degree I have stayed in student halls of residence and a flat in Hanover Square, City Centre.
Looking for your student house can be stressful when there’s so much to consider, from location to pricing and décor to local transport links. However, the biggest decision is choosing the people you actually want to live with, so I’ve put together a list of points to help you make your choice.
You’re probably just getting the hang of life in halls and already people are talking about looking for somewhere else! The good news is you don’t need to panic, there are plenty of houses available for you and you don’t have think about it till January when the house hunting season fully kicks off.
