Why I’m staying at Host student accommodation in Sheffield…

Guest blog – Final year student living in Host Sheffield accommodation.

Hey, I’m Jake!

It’s that time of year again; the mad rush has once again begun to get signed up to a student house and accommodation for the next academic year.

STOP! You should take your time to sign and don’t believe the myth that there is a shortage of student housing in Sheffield because it’s not true!

However, I’ll be honest, finding the right accommodation can be an absolute minefield! For this reason, I’ve decided to do away with the hassle of finding a shared house and will be staying in halls with Host for my final year. Believe it or not staying in halls after your first year is defo worth considering, and The Elements was the best option for me. Here’s why:

1. Bills are included

First of all, living in a shared house will usually involve paying your own utility bills. Whereas at Host accommodation, my bills are included in the rent – no arguments with housemates, no hassle, no problem!

2. Cosy accommodation & my own bathroom

I personally find my bedroom at Host to be much nicer that what I have experienced in shared houses. What’s more, as it’s an en-suite not having to wait for the bathroom in the morning is a major bonus!

3. Support 24/7  

Living in halls makes me feel like I’m part of a community. Furthermore, there’s always someone to talk to at Host if I have any problems or issues. I know that I can always pop down to reception and have a chat with the accommodation management team!

4. Great facilities

Above all, where else can you get a gym, common room, cinema, study area, and launderette all under one roof?! My mind is blown!

So, make sure you don’t rush into finding your perfect shared student house. And seriously consider living in halls after your first year.
