Student Accommodation in Leicester Bills Included

By Westmanor Student Living on 31st January 2018

For many people, starting university can also mean the first experience of living away from home and all of the responsibilities that come with it. That’s why, when it comes to first time digs, many students opt for Student Accommodation Leicester Bills Included. The great thing about having your own place is the sense of freedom that it brings. However, it also means dealing with added extras that haven’t been on the radar before, such as setting house rules and paying bills. And any help finding your feet with it, to start with, is often much appreciated. At Westmanor Student Living, we think it’s always a good idea to establish house rules among the people you’re sharing with, such as washing up/ cooking/ cleaning rotas and bathroom usage, as soon as possible. It’s a great way to avoid disputes further down the line. And an excellent way to ensure energy and water bills are paid is by having them included in the rent, which will reduce the worry of how much they will be or when they’ll arrive. In an ideal world, student accommodation in Leicester would be a stone’s throw from your campus, so you can have an extra half an hour in bed; all bedrooms would have en-suite bathrooms so no waits for the shower; and all your bills would be included in your rent. This way you wouldn’t have the hassle of chasing up your housemates for payment or organising separate direct debits for your water, gas, electricity and internet. A top tip to getting all of the above is by picking accommodation early and finding the best property for your needs. And if you are looking for student accommodation in Leicester with all of your bills included we have many properties available to suit your requirements. There are hundreds of Leicester student properties on our books which include all bills in the rent for the next academic year. With prices to suit a range of budgets and individual requirements, our student flats and houses in Leicester also come with a selection of the following facilities: Furnished Double beds En-suite bathrooms On campus locations City centre...

How to pick your housemates for the second year of university

By Westmanor Student Living on 1st November 2017

It may only seem like five minutes ago that the madness of Freshers’ Week was in full swing and everything felt brand new, but now you’ve got the hang of things, believe it or not, it’s getting towards the time to start looking for a place to live in your second year. It might seem an awfully long way away, but take it from us, the best student accommodation gets snapped up pretty quick, so, it’s certainly worth setting the wheels in motion. And there’s no point looking at second year accommodation, unless you’ve decided on the kind of place you want, who you want to share it with and how many of you will be living there. Hopefully by now, you’ve already started making friends, whether it’s on your course, in halls or in the many Leicester university groups and societies there are to join. And you already know that you can have a good laugh with them. So, the first step is to ask yourself, could you and would you live together? When it comes to actually living with your buddies, it might be worth checking that you have slightly more in common than a love of doing shots together, or support the same footie team. If you’re considering how to pick your housemates for the second year of university and are looking for the perfect apartment or house, here are a few tips to bear in mind: Don’t make any rash decisions, try to discover more about the individuals and their habits before you choose to live with them. Check your priorities are the same – eg. levels of tidiness.. (If their room in halls is more like a pigsty, while yours is always spotless, chances are this might grate a little when you’re living on top of each other). It’s a golden rule to never date any of your housemates as things can get awkward if they turn sour, so keep it platonic. Do any of your potential housemates spend a lot of time with their boyfriend/girlfriend? If so, would you be happy having them as a regular houseguest? Agree beforehand on things such as...
