Searching for student accommodation in Plymouth
The questions you may have when searching for student accommodation in Plymouth might include:
- When should I look for student accommodation in Plymouth?
Most students tend to begin their search in October but there’s usually student accommodation available around the year.
- How much will a student property in Plymouth cost me?
The amount you pay in rent will vary but a shared student house in Plymouth can cost from as little as £70 per week, while better quality homes will cost more. A one-bed studio flat could cost £100.
- How long will my student tenancy last for?
The usual length of a student tenancy agreement in Plymouth is 46 weeks. Some landlords will offer 50 or 52 weeks.
- How much will I pay for a student accommodation deposit in Plymouth?
Again, how much you pay as a deposit will vary and depend on the type of student property you want to live in. The most you can be charged is five weeks’ rent and some landlords do not require a deposit at all. Remember too that the landlord must tell you where your deposit is being held for safekeeping – this is a legal requirement.
Finding quality student lets in Plymouth
There’s no doubt that finding quality student lets in Plymouth will be an important part of your stay in what is an attractive town with lots to do.
Not only does Plymouth offer a quality student experience with great nightlife and a thriving drink and food scene, but the campus is also impressive.
It’s also an easy city to get around, though most students tend to rent accommodation in Greenbank, Lipson, and Mutley.
That’s because these areas are quite close to the university campus and if rents are an issue, you could find somewhere further out in Plymouth but remember to factor in travel costs.
