Last Minute Accommodation? Don’t Panic – Student Rooms 4 U can Help!
With so many other things on their plate (such as enjoying a wild summer, celebrating A Level results, packing suitcases and saying goodbye to friends) some first-year students neglect to sort out accommodation until the last minute. With halls of residence often being a first choice, students can feel lost at sea on discovering that halls are full. If you’re in that boat, don’t panic – Student Rooms 4 U has great late availability for new students. Here are some of the reasons why you should choose to rent with us.
Home from Home
Leaving home for the first time can be a difficult transition for some students, while of course there are also those who relish the adventure. For getting stuck into university life, a time when there are so many new changes, it’s best not to stray too far from your comfort zone. Student Rooms 4 U can offer a variety of accommodation types to suit your needs.
Don’t fancy a lengthy commute each morning to get to class? All our accommodation provided by Student Rooms 4 U is conveniently located, and all are less than a 5-7 mins walk from The University of Plymouth / Plymouth College of Art. So, if you’re the kind of person who tumbles out of bed in the morning and rolls straight up to class, this is a great choice. Also, a good choice for people who are prone to sleeping through their alarms!
Having a shared house of your ideal size is one thing – it’s another if you’re sharing with the perfect number of people but you don’t have anything in common. We will make every effort to place you with people who you will have similar interests with. This might mean people who are studying in the same school as you, or are enrolled on the same course. Don’t want to just share with other first-year students? You can opt to have a mix and let us know your gender preferences too if you’d rather stay in single-gender or multi-gender houses.
The Price is Right
Money is a big issue for students – even more so when they’re away from the purse strings of Mum and Dad and trying to make it on their own. We are hugely competitive on price compared to hall placements, despite many people’s preconception that halls of residence will be cheaper.
We are a landlord rather than agent and care for and support our tenants in their transition. That means that there is no middle man, no going backwards and forwards to get anything done – all care and support is provided directly from us to you.
Renting a property from a private individual might seem like an affordable option, but independent landlords can’t always offer the same safety guarantees that larger companies do. Here at Student Rooms 4 U, our properties are extremely secure, adhering to all relevant legislation. We also offer a 24 hour emergency call out cover in case of emergencies, so you’ll never have to worry about getting in touch – whenever you need us, we’ll be there for you.
There are so many things to consider when you leave home and start student life – the last thing you need is to turn up at your accommodation and realise you’ve been taken for a ride and your room isn’t up to scratch. At Student Rooms 4 U we provide an excellent service and have awards to prove it! We are rated ‘A grade’ by Plymouth University Accommodation Office and are members of many regulatory bodies such as The National Landlord’s Association. So, take our word for it – this is a top quality service. Or don’t take our work for it and look at our great independent reviews.
Paperwork? What paperwork?
Often, students find the endless ‘ifs’ and ‘buts’ of housing contracts to be completely overwhelming, and a stress that they certainly don’t need at this tricky time of transition. Wouldn’t it be so much simpler for housing providers to keep things simple? Well, that’s exactly what we do – we don’t ask for deposits, admin fees or guarantors. Simple!
As most of our properties are just a stone’s throw from campus, there’s really no need to bring a car to use in Plymouth. However, some students decide to bring their car with them to make it easier to visit family/friends/their partner on the weekend, and if so, finding accommodation with parking can be a big problem. If you want to bring your car, don’t despair – many of our properties offer parking at an affordable additional cost.
