However, one of the biggest concerns that imminent students face is the uncertainties around accommodation.

Fear not! We have put together a helpful guide below on what you can do to find the pad of your dreams.

Where Am I Going To Live?

First things first, you need to assess the situation.

Whether you are moving away from home for the first time, or simply moving out of mum and dad’s, you need to consider what your essentials are when finding a home.

Is walking distance to campus a must for you? Or perhaps you prioritise the amount you will be paying in rent?

After you have formed an idea of what you would like, you will need to consider exactly who you will be living with.

It’s a fact of life: we are all different. Not everyone is going to share the same characteristics and mannerisms as each other, and life would be incredibly boring otherwise!

Establishing your personality traits and what type of living situation will benefit you could save you a whole lot of stress later down the line.

Your Perfect Place

So, what are your personality traits?

You might be slightly more introverted than most, or could appreciate your own company and space.

Picture the scene – total freedom to do whatever you’d like to do, whenever you’d like to do it. Also, complete control over the TV remote…winning!
