Where Do You Want to Live? Epsom

The UK may be small as your pinkie on a map of the world, but it’s got plenty of variety. You don’t need Push to tell you that there are some pretty big differences between England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland (where, for a start, degree courses are usually four years instead of three).

Halls of Residence Epsom

Student halls are the most common student accommodation in universities and all the pros and cons of living in come in trumps. For the most part, it’s first year students that end up in halls.

Apartments Epsom

When choosing a place to live, sniff about like a dog in a meat-packer’s. Try talking to someone who’s lived there before or is living there now, just to get an idea of what you will be getting for your money. Ask about any hidden costs (such as a heating system that uses fuel but seems incapable of producing heat) and get their opinion on how well – and how quickly – the landlord sorted out any problems they’ve had with the house.

Student Rentals Epsom

If you aren’t using the university’s property service to find accommodation, at least get them to check out your tenancy agreement before you sign it. In fact, nag them with questions if anything to do with your living arrangements is bugging you.

In particular, on a day-to-day level, a lot of your hassles or happiness as a student may depend on the way the university is laid out on a local level. So the next part will look at some of the typical set-ups of universities — campuses, civic universities, multi-sites, colleges — and paint a picture of what choosing between them is likely to mean when it comes to the crunch.

College Facilities Epsom

Most student houses are notoriously bog standard (and often sub-standard), but occasionally you may be lucky enough to find hints of luxury. Don’t laugh, but en suite shower rooms and toilets are becoming pretty much standard in newer housing.

Dormitories Epsom

Sharing isn’t that common these days, even in halls of residence. And if you state on your accommodation application that you don’t want to share, you’ll usually not have to. Even those who do need to share are normally sent questionnaires by the university so they can make roommate matches as harmonious as possible.

Living Out Epsom

Living out is — you’d never guess this — the opposite of living in. It covers any option that doesn’t involve the university: renting, buying, squatting, whatever. (By the way, squatting is generally illegal and therefore a bad idea.)

It depends on what the university is charging, but it’s rare that once you’ve allowed for bills, meals and anything else they throw in, it works out on the wrong side of what’s available locally.

University Residence Homes Epsom

’Living in’ means living in housing owned or at least run by the university. As a wild and inaccurate generalisation, most traditional first years want to live in because it makes life so much simpler to start with. By the second year, they’re happy to move out.
