Private Halls are a good option to consider as they are purpose built and designed exclusively for students, whilst also including all utility bills and internet access in the overall price.
Rooms are usually ensuite, each flat houses a kitchen and common room and you can apply for rooms as a flat or as an individual.
There can also be a range of additional benefits including:
- CCTV security
- an onsite team/manager
- outside space
- bike storage
- car parking
- large beds
