When to start looking for student accommodation?
Bear in mind that word of mouth and Google Maps can only take you so far; nothing replaces the impression you’ll get from exploring on foot to get a feel for the area. Where’s your local newsagent or supermarket and how late does it stay open? Also, what are the transport links to uni like?
For a more peaceful ride, check out our social media links for updates and this way you’ll be the first to know when a room or property in your favourite area crops up.
Although securing an entire house or flat might be a tall order this late on (although not impossible – check our latest property listings), you should be able to find a room in a shared house, even when your term begins.
If you find yourself in this position, get in touch with Student Places immediately. Even if there’s nothing currently available, we’ll alert you as soon as there is.
For more advice that’s tailored to your own situation, Student Places are open 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.
