Where to live
House–hunting can be exciting but it's also likely to be a stressful experience. The best student properties are often snapped up quickly so it's important to be organised and ready to begin looking for accommodation as soon as possible.
Most student towns and cities have established areas which students tend to favour. If you're not aware of them already, speak to your friends and University who will be able to help identify them.
The pros of living in a renowned student area usually include:
- Good public transport links
- Close proximity to University campus
- Supermarkets and convenience stores nearby
- Close to other students
The cons of living within a renowned student area may include:
- Higher noise levels
- Increased crime rates
