Finding Student Accommodation

The student accommodation market has changed significantly in recent years. On the one hand, this has been a boon for students as they have more accommodation choices than ever before. On the other, this level of choice can be confusing and can make it difficult to come to a decision. In this article, we’ll break down the choices you have when you’re looking for student accommodation in Huddersfield and a few things that you’ll need to know wherever you’re looking in the UK.

Halls or house?

Student halls, which were once exclusively run by universities themselves, are now increasingly run by the private sector. This has led to a huge increase in the number of rooms available and means that many students are now staying in halls of residence throughout their university career. The quality of accommodation can vary widely. Some university run halls still offer shared bathroom facilities, whereas many privately-run facilities offer gyms, lounges and other little luxuries that can make the experience that little bit nicer.

Shared houses are still an option, but you do run the risk of living with people who you struggle to get on with day-to-day. Just because you’ve gelled well with someone on a night out, doesn’t mean that’s living with them will be a breeze. Additionally, you’ll probably be responsible for paying your own bills when you live in a shared house. Be sure to take this into account when you’re comparing costs.

Other things to consider

It’s also worth checking whether you’ll have to move out of your halls during the winter and Easter breaks. Some universities rent out their halls to other people during these periods and you’ll need to consider the inconvenience of packing everything up twice a year.

Starting the search for accommodation in plenty of time is also important. The best rooms and houses will go quickly, and you don’t want to be left fighting for scraps when term is about to begin. The more time you give yourself, the easier the process will be.

When it comes to finding the right student accommodation Huddersfield can be a tough proposition, but providers such as DIGS will give you a great place to live if you make the effort early.
