Why Book Accommodation Early
By Lara Thompson on November 30th, 2021
The UK is one of the world’s most popular destinations to study higher education. With more than 500,000 international students enrolling each year, the best accommodation gets booked up extremely fast.
So, starting the search early can takes the stress out of finding accommodation. Most providers offer a wide range of choice available pre-Christmas as bookings can peak in January. Doing your research now and making a booking before the New Year, means you can pick the best room available.
At university, you have a million things on your plate. Meeting deadlines, preparing for presentations, revising in the library, and that is not to mention the socialising. Organising your accommodation can slip way down your priorities, and leave you stressed out with it looming over you for months.
The sooner you get it sorted – you can focus on what is really important – and look forward to some of the amenities at the best accommodations including cinema rooms, study spaces, on-site gyms and in-house events are the first to go. Take advantage of the early booking discounts before price hikes occur in the new year!
Having a social life, studying and saving money while at university can sound hard but at purpose-built accommodation with all bills included, free events, resident group chats to make new friends and great facilities all your reservations can go.
Want to play it safe and dodge moving in with a private landlord? Purpose-built accommodation is the best option when it comes to university housing while still maintaining your independence and becoming part of a community.
