Student Accommodation Doesn’t Have to Be Hard. Read These 10 Tips

Have a budget

Don’t bother going in for first offers or a get-in cheap price; you’ll have a tougher time of it. Instead, simply search online and use sites such as Digstudent and other sites to determine where the best value is. Always keep in mind that prices rise with the level of occupation. The area of the city where you want to live is the main factor in calculating the cost of housing in that area. Once you’ve done your homework on where to go, it’s time to figure out your budget. It’s difficult to find a place in the middle of nowhere on a tight budget, but you can go for a cheaper option if you want to.

Get to Know the Neighborhood

One of the most important ways to find your place to stay is to investigate where you’ll be staying at. This will allow you to understand where the problem areas are in the city, allowing you to decide if you’re comfortable in the area.

Do some further research

Before you even start, make sure you understand what you’re getting into.

  1. Will your accommodation cost me more than my same-priced accommodation in Sheffield?

  2. Will I be expected to pay out of pocket for any advice or service, be it food, cultural breaks, or repairs?

  3. How much is a new accommodation flat in Sheffield going to cost?

  4. Who will I be sleeping in with?

  5. Who will I be sharing a bathroom with?

Get a good idea of how much space you need.

Housing is no fun without knowing where you’ll be sleeping. If you know how much space you need, you’ll know where to look – or you could just book your Airbnb space. In these cases, you’ll need to choose what kind of “long-term” accommodation (in other words, whether you want a longer stay or want to live temporarily).

Find an accessible building

This is the easiest option and it will ensure that you feel at home. Also, according to the  Digstudent , all accessible student Sheffield hallam accommodation buildings have some or all of the following features:

*Laundry rooms and facilities

*Kitchen facilities for prepare meals

*Door locks

*Lights for blind people

*Access to washroom facilities

Accessible entrances and exit

Can you tell which building is which? One nice feature is that accessibility will make it easier for you to deal with (relocate) or find (reserve) a room in an accessible building

My Final thoughts

In this day and age, being a savvy tenant is essential, and starting your search online can be a great way of finding accommodation. Obviously, searching for locations can be easy, as we’ve taken care of the search above, but finding the most popular accommodation is harder. When it comes to student accommodation prices, different markets have their own takers. So, don’t be too quick to judge a place’s location. Ask for reviews from locals, read local property guides and take a look at the accommodation websites that are often available in the area.
