5 Aspects to Consider When Booking Your Student Housing

5 Aspects to Consider When Booking Your Student Housing
Created By: Ola Elwassifyon 17 July, 2017

Deciding on your new home-away-from-home could be misleading to both local and international students. Here are five important aspects that need to be considered in the process of booking your Casita student accommodation:

1. Location

University students need to be as close as possible to their colleges/universities. Missing lectures will always cost you time trying to grasp the information that you have missed. Residing in a Casita student accommodation within an easy walking distance to your university is a great bonus. When viewing any of our accommodations make sure to click on ‘Nearby Universities’ icon inside the page of the building you are considering for future booking to see the estimated distances to nearby universities.

2. Room Types

When surfing Casita’s student accommodations, you will notice that we have numerous room types, and each comes with different layouts, views, and sometimes different furnishings. En-suite rooms come in a wide range of types, such as Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. Mainly, they are all the same; they slightly differ in size and in the number of flatmates in the shared flat. Self-contained studios and one-bedroom flats are perfectly designed for students wanting more privacy, and some buildings consider dual occupancy for couples, best friends, and/or relatives. Nevertheless, there are twin studios and other two-bedroom apartments with en-suites or single rooms. In a nutshell, consider all the types and match them with your personal needs and lifestyle to choose what suits you best.

3. Facilities

The buildings provide students with great facilities; the more the facilities on offer, often the higher the prices of the rooms will be. But rest assured that with Casita, most of our rates are all-inclusive to avoid any extra payments that might irritate or surprise you. Take your time to find the right facilities, for example, you may not require a gym if you do not exercise much or group study rooms if you prefer studying on your own. Some buildings come with accessible and easy to use facilities. After the ‘building’s details’ section, you will find the facilities’ icons to easily comprehend the available facilities.

4. Friends’ Influence

This is what parents mostly struggle with. If you are attending the University of Manchester and your friend is attending the University of Salford, it wouldn’t make sense to live together given each of you would have to travel daily to attend his/her lectures. The same goes for every other choice that you have to make. Every individual has his own educational circumstances that need fulfilling for better final scores; do not bind yours to your friends.

5. Experts' Advice

This is the most important, yet the most underrated step. No matter how many former friends had booked student accommodations and pouring you with information that might or might not be correct, it still makes sense to call the Casita accommodation experts. Every student has different questions, and our experts are ready to help you with anything that you might need. You can call us at +44 (0) 20 3871 8666, or [email protected].
