How To Find The Best Postgraduate Accommodation For The New Year

There's no better time to find new student accommodation than just before the New Year. A new place to live will bring with it a fresh perspective and give you that little boost to start your studies off on the right foot. Searching for that idyllic student accommodation was once a rather lengthy, and dare we say it frustrating task. After all, there is so much to take into consideration, and a wrong choice could result in a rather miserable start to the New Year. Fresh Student Living has changed things up when it comes to finding that perfect Postgrad student accommodation for your needs. They make it super easy to search and find exactly what you are looking for when it comes to find a new place to live in your uni town or city – offering modern and secure purpose-built private student accommodation.

A little legwork is required when looking for the perfect student home, but we've done the hard work for you by compiling a list of the various elements that you need to consider in order to find the very best postgrad accommodation for the New Year. 

Location, Location, Location 

Location is one of the major factors when it comes to selecting your new place to live. You will most likely want to be located within easy reach of your university, so that you can travel to and from it with ease (and for minimal costs). Luckily, many of the large student cities have a wide variety of accommodation, which is located within walking distance of your university. If you want to stay a little bit out of town – say perhaps in a more tranquil or remote location – then it's always worth checking what travel options are available. Again most student towns and cities will have excellent transportation links, some even with travel discounts available for students that are studying in the area. Fresh Student Living makes it easy to find that ideal accommodation by listing the available options on an easy to view map. It also lists the approximate walking distances from the available accommodations to many of the major halls, local attractions and even airports in the area. Their accommodation is always in convenient locations for the local universities. Rome 2 Rio is an excellent resource for finding out transportation options in the area. 

Money Matters 

Of course, money also plays a major role in deciding on where you want to live in the New Year. Before you start your search, it's worth going through your finances to take into consideration your budget for your accommodation. How much can you really afford to spend on your student accommodation, and will this leave you enough money for all the other essentials you need to purchase and pay for during your studies, including things like amenities, food, transportation and of course other luxury expenses that come with student life? Here is a great article on budgeting and saving cash while you study. Fresh Student Living has a large array of value for money properties, which start from as little as £100 per week – with all bills included. It's easy to see the cost of each of the accommodation options, and you can even filter your results based on your budget

Right Roomies 

And last but certainly no means least is your roommates. Who do you want to live with? As a postgraduate student, you may find you want to stay with a different crowd as compared to when you were an undergrad. Perhaps you want a more quiet, grown-up environment to reside in to allow you to get your head down to focus on your studies. Fresh Student Living understands this and has a number of studio flats available complete with mini kitchens and en-suite bathrooms, so you can have everything you need within your student abode. There's also an accommodation team on hand to help you to make the best choice possible and find accommodation that is best for you.
