Accommodation is one of those things that make life a bit more tricky  it’s not easy finding a place to stay and leaving home for the first time from the safety of your parents house tends to bring more than butterflies in ones stomach! The easiest choice whilst being a student is to have on-campus accommodation in the student residency. But that however becomes slightly stale so moving into your our pad becomes the next best thing!
From finding a flatmate, to understanding that pointing your furniture to face the television is a normal trend, to realising that cooking is not an art but a necessity. If you are stuck and can’t find a place to live then here are some of the best student accommodation websites out there that can help point you in the right direction!
