Accommodation for Students

Accommodation for continuing students

Where you live can play a big role in student life and your overall university experience. And as a first-year student, living in student halls can be a great way to meet new people. It gives you the opportunity to meet like-minded people who are at the same university or on the same course as you, share similar interests and are also new to the city. And quite often, the people you meet at university or share a flat with can become friends for life.

Besides the friends you make, living in student halls can also make your time at university a lot less stressful. Why, you ask? Because everything is taken care of for you. There’s no need to worry about furnishing a flat, paying utility bills, getting internet installed or phoning around for a handyman when you’ve got maintenance issues; all of those things are covered and taken care of by the on-site management team when you reside in all-inclusive student accommodation such as that provided by Host.

Our friendly on-site management teams are on hand throughout the day to answer any questions you may have. They’re available to deal with any problems or simply have a chat with after a busy day at uni. Oh, and not forgetting the fact that they’ll always be someone available to take deliveries. Wouldn’t want you to miss those all-important parcels you’ve ordered when your student loan comes through!

What about second year?

So, why move away from all of this just because you’ve finished your first year of study? Well, the answer is, you don’t have to. Contrary to popular belief, accommodation in student halls isn’t just available for first year students. Whether you’re a second, third, fourth or even a post-graduate student, you can continue to live in halls of residence. There’s no need for endless calls to estate agents or scheduling 101 different house viewings for properties you’re probably not that keen on anyway. And you won’t need to start over again with settling into a new building and area of the city. Living in the same, familiar and friendly environment can take a lot of pressure off you.
