What are the considerations for moving into student housing in Preston?

If you are moving out of halls and into student housing for the first time, there are several things you should consider. These include:

  • Choosing a moving date- you will need to choose a moving in date that suits you and the landlord or letting agent you have decided to work with. This ill ensure that you can move into a newly cleaned and prepared property, and leaves ample time for the past tenants to find somewhere else to live. You may also want to consider moving in with your friends and new housemates on the same day, which can be more difficult than you might think to arrange. Also, while you might want to unpack and get settled in the summer, you might not want to have to pay for an additional month or two.
  • Moving your belongings- you might need to consider hiring a moving van, or roping in some friends or family members to help you move into your new student house. And you’ll also need to consider outside parking and the access from the property to the road. In some cases it may only be possible for one person to unload a vehicle, so you might need to work with your new housemates to stagger moving in times.
