Tips for starting uni mummy blogger

For many first-time students, heading off to university is a great first stab at some independence. And, whether you choose to live in halls, or private rented accommodation, making the right decision on where to stay can have a massive impact on your first year.

If you’re on the hunt for student accommodation in Leicester 2017, then the biggest favour you can do yourself is to get in good and early so that you have plenty of places to choose from. And as summer fast approaches, it’s a good idea to get your skates on because now is the time to start looking!

Traditionally student accommodation has received a bit of bad press in the past, but thankfully that’s all ancient history. With some amazing new builds popping up in the last few years, Leicester accommodation has arguably never been better for students!

We can’t wait to show next year’s students around some of the jaw dropping new accommodation that is brand spanking new for September 2017. Works of art springs to mind when you see some of the accommodation, not to mention the fact that there’s no summer rent to pay either! Check out the likes of Abode, London Road, 3A Welford Place and The Student Hideout – the décor and facilities in these are absolutely out of this world!

  • Good location – close to or on campus, so you don’t have to travel far for work and play
  • Facilities you’ll need for study – such as Wi-Fi, desk to work on, and free internet connection
  • Energy and water costs included in the rent
  • The opportunity to meet and make friends – why not consider sharing?
  • Excellent standard of décor

  • Easy access to public transport
  • Ensuite bathrooms
