Key considerations when looking for second year student accommodation in Preston

If you need to find accommodation for your second year, you should consider:

  • The cost- from the standard rent price to whether or not bills are included, there are a number of financial considerations to be made when taking a look at any property. Preferably, you will need to know your price range based on your current budget, and the proportion of the budget you have to spend on accommodation.
  • The number of bedrooms- if you want to live with 6 other people, a two bedroom flat probably wont be practical. So narrow down your search criteria by deciding exactly who you would want to live with, and how many bedrooms your new home will need.
  • The condition- it can be easy accept the cheapest, easiest accommodation offer. But this isn’t always the best possible solution. You should be sure to thoroughly check the condition of any student accommodation property. From faulty electrics and power, to unsafe building practices, and even pest infections, there are a number of potential risks to look out for.
