No Group? No Problem – We provide Individual Rooms For Student Accommodation in Plymouth

When we start taking bookings for renting our student homes in the next academic year, most potential tenants approach us in groups. A group of three will inquire about a three-bed house, six course-mates will contact us about living together is a six-bed rental. But not everyone has a clear idea about who they want to share with and so can procrastinate when it comes to sorting their rental. If that sounds familiar, don’t worry – at this time of year, we’re able to offer individual rooms to single applicants who haven’t found somewhere to live yet. Some larger properties (such as our eight-bed houses or our popular fifteen-bed house) get filled up with smaller groups or individual renters who don’t quite make up the numbers. These additional rooms can be filled by individuals like yourself, even if you don’t already know the other tenants.

How to Find an Individual Room For Student Accommodation in Plymouth

If you don’t know where to begin your hunt, head to the property search page on our website. The page will list all houses with available rooms to rent during the academic year. Under the name of the house, you’ll find information relating to how big the property is – how many bedrooms it has. Over the photograph on the left-hand side, you’ll see a box saying ‘XXX rooms left!’ While some of our properties are still entirely unbooked and available for groups to look at together, plenty of homes have been partially reserved by small groups or individuals, leaving the remaining rooms open for individuals. It might be that the vast majority of rooms are already booked and there are just one or two left over, or it might be that the home has almost all of its rooms available for you to check out. We are a really friendly and relaxed team so why not give us a call on 01752 849232. Why not take a look at your Virtual Tours.

Information On Individual Rooms For Student Accommodation in Plymouth

Choose a property you like the look of and click the link to see details. On the right-hand side of the page is a table that lists the different rooms in the property, the individual prices and whether or not the room is available. A red circle means that the room has already been reserved, whereas a green circle means the room is available for an individual like you. Rooms within the same property vary in price – this is often due to minor differences in size or position, and occasionally we’re able to offer rooms with a private en suite which increases the cost. Once you’ve identified which rooms are available (the rooms are numbered) you can click on the floorplan to see where the room is in the house and what size it is. It can be hard to work out which room is which just from the photographs, so the best way to really ‘see’ your room is to take the virtual tour for a walkthrough of the entire property.

Sharing with Strangers – Individual Rooms For Student Accommodation in Plymouth

It can be a daunting thing to rent a room in a property filled with people you don’t know. This is one of the biggest worries faced by individual tenants, but we’d like to reassure you that there’s no need to worry. Here are a few pointers about Individual Rooms For Student Accommodation in Plymouth, the practicalities of going into shared accommodation as an individual:

  • You might feel like the odd one out, like all the other tenants are already friends and you’re just filling the gap. However, it’s more likely that there are several ‘individual’ renters in a property, not just you. For example, it’s usual for a six-bed house to be rented by a group of three or four friends who book together, as well as two or three individuals who take the final rooms.
  • Even if the house does already contain friendship groups, just remember that these friends might have been strangers to each other just months ago. At university, bonds are formed quickly and it doesn’t take time to get to know the people you spend your time with.
  • The people you meet at university could end up being friends for life. Just because the people you rent with aren’t in your friendship group, aren’t on the same course as you or maybe aren’t even in the same academic year as you, doesn’t mean that you can’t get on really well. Variety is the spice of life, and renting with people you don’t know can be an eye-opening experience, giving you new opportunities and friendships and broadening your horizons.
  • At SR4U we do everything possible to ensure you’re housed with likeminded people, and we can even help to pass on your details so that you can meet your potential roomies before committing to renting. Moving in with people you don’t know can feel scary, but once you’ve taken the leap, you’ll wonder what you were so worried about. Remember that we’re always happy to answer your questions and provide further information on any property we have listed, so just give us a call.
