When it comes to studio student accommodation Leicester is a university town which has plenty to choose from, with tons of new properties popping up all over the city in the last few years. 

As we head towards the latter part of 2021, it’s fair to say that the new academic year is well and truly underway and with it has brought a fresh bunch of folk who are getting used to the awesome experience that is university life! 

In addition to making friends and heading off to lectures, a big part of being a university student in Leicester is making sure you find the right place to live. There are so many different types of student properties to choose from and this includes studio student accommodation which makes an ideal base from which to enjoy uni life. 

If you’re still open to considering your options, with regard to your student accommodation, or you want to try somewhere different from the place where you are at the moment, then studio living could be for you – and here’s why… 


The plus points of Leicester studio student accommodation 

Sometimes it’s nice to just get away from the hustle and bustle of student life and many people love the opportunity to spend a little time enjoying their own company, whether that’s to get a bit of peace and quiet, some head space, or just the chance to do what you want to do. 

Having your own space is what studio student accommodation in Leicester is all about – it’s the presence of your own front door which means privacy is there when you need it. 

In addition to getting that added privacy, you also get full control of your living space – something which isn’t so easy when you’re sharing a house or flat with others. You don’t have to worry about coping with other people’s annoying habits either, such as messiness, weird cooking smells, or sharing a bathroom which looks like it should come with a health warning!  

Despite the fact that your studio student accommodation in Leicester might be smaller than living in a house or multi bedroom flat, the fact that it’s only you living in it also means that there’s actually more room for your stuff, because you don’t have to worry about fitting it in around everyone else’s. Living in studio student accommodation also makes cleaning easier and because of the smaller space, you should accumulate less clutter.


The downsides to studio student accommodation in Leicester

As with everything in life, choosing studio student accommodation in Leicester will have its downsides, but the good news is that these are easily overcome. The downsides to studio living might include the following:

  • Slightly higher cost than living in a shared flat in halls
  • It’s less sociable because you’re living alone
  • Not great if you have lots of stuff that you want with you

While living alone can mean that you spend less time around other people, Leicester is a fantastic city to socialise in, so, if you aren’t planning to stay home all the time, then, getting out and about means the chance to enjoy a huge amount of places to go and things to do.
