PRLog - March 28, 2012 - NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE, U.K. -- Choosing the right Newcastle student accommodation is one of the most important decisions you’ll make while at university. So which is better, living in private rented accommodation or student halls of residence?
When it comes to price, private rented Newcastle student accommodation is often cheaper than living in halls of residence - which means you’ll have a little extra spending money. However don’t forget with private rented accommodation you need to budget for bills, which are usually included when living in student halls.
Location is often key when it comes to choosing the right student accommodation, after all you don’t want your student memories to consist mostly of travelling across town on the bus. Student Halls are beneficial when it comes to location as they’re normally located on campus, which means they’re just a stone’s throw from the university, and you can enjoy a longer lie-in after a hard night’s studying. Private rented accommodation differs in terms of location but is inevitably close to the university. Local lettings agent Walton Robinson states that their Newcastle student accommodation “will generally be located within developed Student Quarters, just a short walk from the university in areas such as Jesmond’s Osbourne Road or Heaton’s Chillingham Road”.
If it’s freedom you’re after, the clear favourite is private Newcastle student accommodation. Unlike student halls you don’t have to worry about monthly flat inspections or waking up your flatmates, you just need to ensure you pay the rent and the world is your oyster.
Most people will readily admit that their university years were some of the best years of their lives. The student experience is not just about studying, it’s about that first foray into Adult life, it’s about having a good time and making friends, which is why it’s important to make sure you choose the right Newcastle student accommodation for you.
