When you’re viewing a property for university, we understand the importance of asking questions and getting the feel of the space. You might feel pressure to secure student accommodation, but it pays off to be thorough when viewing show flats. We’ve put together a list of the best questions to ask when viewing student accommodation.
Host Weekly Challenge: Week 3
Another week has passed which means we’re another week closer to some form of normality. But that’s not all. It also means we’re onto our third weekly challenge!
We’ve already seen some fantastic attempts at the Tea Bag Challenge, and some, well, not so good attempts at the Toilet Roll Keepy-Uppie Challenge. But now, we really want to see the bar lifted with our Juggling Challenge.
Week 3: Juggling Challenge
Yes, that’s right, we said juggling. In your day-to-day life, you’re probably used to juggling lots of things such as attending lectures and classes, completing coursework, catching up with friends, keeping fit and going shopping. But with a lot of those activities currently on hold, why not practice the art of actual juggling?
Watch the video below for details and a demonstration of our third weekly challenge.
Have you got what it takes?
As you can see from our very own attempt, juggling is not as easy as it looks; or is that just us? If you think you can do better and have got what it takes to become the next top juggler, it’s time to get juggling.
Don’t have any juggling balls? We didn’t either – we used some house shaped stress balls. All you need to do is have a look around your home and use anything you think might work. From tennis balls to socks, or Easter eggs to oranges, the more imaginative, the more kudos you’ll get.
Once you’ve given our juggling challenge a go, nominate your friends to take on the challenge too!
Do you have a fun idea for a weekly challenge that we could all try at home? Send us a message on social media and we’ll consider it for future challenges!
Getting serious about the environment we live in.
To become more ‘environmentally friendly’, Host is launching the #HostEnvironmentalPledge campaign to encourage responsible behaviour and drive sustainability across our sites throughout the UK and Ireland.
It’s a simple campaign! For every percent we reduce our overall utilities (electric, water and gas) consumption by we donate to one of our nominated charities.Show me all news
This year, Chinese New Year is on Saturday 10th February and it is the year of the Dragon Zodiac. The Chinese New Year date changes every year, but is always held between January 21st and February 20th, as the Chinese year follows the lunar calendar. The holiday falls on the second new moon after the winter solstice, (the winter solstice, occurs when one of the Earth's poles has its maximum tilt away from the Sun), on December 21st.
Starting university can be a daunting experience for anyone, especially if you’re an international student who has travelled across the world to study in the UK.
