How to Find/Choose Your Casita Student Accommodation

How to Find/Choose Your Casita Student Accommodation
Created By: Ola ElWassifyon 11 June, 2017

Knowing what to choose in your room is essential to your mental and physical wellness, needless to say, your studying progress as well. Your personality and lifestyle should determine what accommodation works best for you. In order to understand this concept more clearly, please go on.

1. Location

When it comes to Casita, our drop-down menus and filters will be your companions for a while. You can get to your accommodation by choosing the city/location you will be studying in, or the university that you will be attending from the drop-down menus. When you choose that, Casita will redirect you to the buildings’ page with useful filters on the left sidebar.

You can choose the distance you prefer between your accommodation and city centre; some students will go for lively and hectic buildings, while others would prefer quiet and calm atmospheres.

Also, if you click at any of our buildings, you can scroll to the bottom of the page to check the map provided showing you the distances between the accommodation and the closest universities by car, bike, underground, and on foot. You can also check the map closely to check that whatever you might need is within easy walking distances, such as restaurants, cafes, theatres, main landmarks, and more. Almost all of our buildings benefit from having good transport links, so you do not have to worry about going to your university, college, or even further for entertainment.

Extra Tip: After choosing the city, you can still select your university from another drop-down menu that will be present right above the ‘Long-term and Short-term’ filters, where you can only view specified tenancies as needed. Also, there is another separate blue filter on the right side where you can arrange the buildings from ‘Highest to Lowest’ prices and vice versa.

2. Room Types

That is the first question that you will come across while trying to surf Casita buildings looking for suitable student accommodation. You need to decide on which room type suits your character. Mainly, there are single and en-suite rooms in cluster flats and self-contained studios. Our en-suite rooms are perfectly designed for students wanting to meet new like-minded students since all our shared apartments come with shared lounges and kitchen areas. You can have from 1 up to 8 flatmates. It is also convenient if you are looking for accommodation for you and your friends. Students looking for more privacy might want to go for the self-contained studios and still benefit from socializing in the communal areas that the building features. There are also twin studios, and some are trios too.

Student room

Some buildings offer 1-bedroom flats. The difference between these and studios are the separation between rooms. One-bedroom flats have a separate bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen with dining area, whereas studios come with an en-suite room with an open-plan studio with a kitchenette unit. Single study rooms could be offered as well within shared cluster apartments. They usually contain a comfortable bed and a study area with generous storage space just to focus on studying.

In the filter, you can pick the type of room that suits you best, as well as your budget, and Casita will show you the best available options.

3. Facilities

If you are interested in nice views, always check the building images to find what you need. The majority of our rooms come with enviable views of the green areas or the hectic city, especially if your room is in a top-floor. However, even if you did not find the desired view, you can still benefit from the breathtaking views and the sunshine through outdoor communal lounges and rooftop terraces.

Communal Areas

Student single room

Other fantastic facilities are spread between our buildings across the UK, such as cinema rooms, group study and reading areas, well-equipped on-site gym & fitness room, and much more. Our Spring Mews London accommodation not only houses an on-site gym, but also an on-site swimming pool. Casita always makes sure that the accommodation offered are safe and secure at any given time; if not all, the majority of our buildings have CCTV surveillance, on-site security team, secure bike storage, and some others come with secure electronic key fob entry systems.
