Whether you will be heading into your first, second or third year of university this September, you will need somewhere to live. But choosing between all the different options and choices available can be a little overwhelming. Visiting each property, with a list of detailed questions, and a list of what you’re looking for, can help to narrow down your options. So what should you include in your Student accommodation “must-have” checklist? Well, here at Let Pads, we are Preston’s leading student accommodation providers. And we offer high quality, stunning homes to suit a range of students. As a result, we have produced this guide to the key features that any student accommodation property should provide.

What to include on a student accommodation “must-have” checklist?

So, what are the key features you should be looking for in your new student accommodation property? Well, there are several, including:

  • Clean and well finished property- as a student, you might not be too fussy on the condition of your student accommodation property, but a high class finish can really make your new pad feel like home. From stylish kitchens and bathrooms to good quality furniture, your student accommodation doesn’t have to be stereotypical. Here at Let Pads, all of our properties are finished to a high standard, and our rooms are furnished.
  • Smoke alarms- smoke alarms should be fitted in every property. But your accommodation manager or landlord has a legal requirement to ensure that your building is equipped with fully functioning smoke alarms. This is an easy way to see how legitimate your landlord or letting agent is.
  • TV’s and game consoles- the student lifestyle is no longer what it once was, with students spending more time studying than ever before. And cheap, in house entertainment is becoming more popular. That’s why we provide TV’s and games consoles in each of our properties. As well as high speed, all included, WiFi.
