Is Plymouth Expensive For Students? When researching different cities for student accommodation, it’s important to consider all your costs, such as accommodation and hidden extras, which can significantly increase your monthly outgoings. 

Following a recent survey, the University of Plymouth was placed 20th for being the cheapest city in the UK in terms of university accommodation – this was based on living, transport, restaurants and entertainment. With average student accommodation in Plymouth coming to £478 per month, this gives you the chance to enjoy the city and everything it has to offer, without having to watch every penny to ensure you don’t overspend. 

Student Rooms 4 U offers a range of student living options in Plymouth’s city centre, which not only gives you all the benefits of a home, but keeps you close to Plymouth University and the nightlife, in fact all our properties are within 250m of the university. We pride ourselves on offering affordable accommodation options where all our properties are from £101 per week and all homes and apartment prices are inclusive of gas, electricity and water*, which makes Plymouth affordable for students.

And we understand that even in the best accommodation, unexpected problems can arise. Properties may require repairs and updates due to wear and tear, accidental damage, or unexpected faults. Unfortunately, there are numerous horror stories about private landlords who blame student renters for any issues in the house or take an extended period to address concerns. However, our maintenance team is dedicated to ensuring that any problems are resolved promptly and efficiently, so you can enjoy a hassle-free living experience. 

Our student flats in Plymouth are located near campus, which means that you will only have a couple of minutes to walk and then you’ll be on campus. This eliminates the need for daily commutes and can save you a significant amount of time and money. Additionally, by living close to university, you have easy access to a variety of resources and support services offered by the university, such as academic advising, career counselling, and health services. 

Just hear what our students has said: 

“It has been lovely staying at Hamilton House managed by Student Rooms 4 U. They have assisted us timely whenever we needed any help and the team has been very sweet to us at all times. Would recommend this letting agency to anyone who’s looking for a wonderful and comfortable stay.” 

“Staying with Student Rooms 4 U has been a pleasure from the start, and I write this as somebody who’s usually wary of student housing agencies in Plymouth. Very responsive, flexible and communicative staff who aren’t invasive yet always available to help, and very decent prices considering the location of my room. Look forward to staying again next year!” 

Our shared houses also come with Virgin Media Broadband, with 350mgbs and unlimited uploads and downloads for FREE. This makes completing work easier and you don’t get held back with slow Internet connections. Our individual tenancies also mean that you won’t be affected if one of your housemates can’t pay the rent, giving you a stress environment to live, relax and enjoy your university experience in.
