For anyone looking to find suitable accommodation for students in Plymouth, then this guide will help.
However, there are a number of issues that you will need to consider first, including:
- How much you can afford: Remember, there will be other bills on top of the rent, including food, gas, and electricity.
- Do you want to live by yourself? Or would you like to share a house with friends?
- You will also need to decide whether you want Wi-Fi and some white goods, including a fridge and washing machine and these will have an impact on the rent you pay.
Essentially, you’ll need to calculate very carefully so you know what your budget is to live on every week or month because there is no point living in swanky student digs if you cannot afford to go out and enjoy your student days.
Finding student houses for rent
When it comes to finding student houses for rent, Plymouth offers some fantastic areas to live in such as Mutley or North Hill. Basically, you’ll need to understand:
- How far do you want to live from your campus?
- You will need to consider whether travel costs are necessary if you can’t walk to lectures.
- Do you want to live in popular student areas that will offer a wide range of student accommodation for you to choose from?
- The rent will be expressed as an amount per week usually and sometimes per month.
- You can also opt for a student property where the bills are all-inclusive.
Student rooms for rent in Plymouth
Along with finding large homes to share with student friends, there’s also a good range of student rooms for rent in Plymouth.
These rooms are available either in other student properties or in private family homes and these tend to be much cheaper and also offer the opportunity of not having to sign up for a year-long tenancy agreement with people you may not get along with.
Having a room in a private family home means you can get the best of both worlds – cheap rent and an opportunity to make non-student friends.
In addition to being cheap, having a student room may be a sound idea if you’re planning on returning home on a regular basis.
Along with purpose-built student accommodation, there’s a lot of Plymouth University-approved housing too and this is available at a wide range of rents to meet various budgets.
Regardless of what your needs are for accommodation for students in Plymouth, you should speak with reputable and friendly agents, including the team at Student Homes in Plymouth.
