Saving Money on Student Properties in Plymouth – As a university student, saving money can be challenging, but there are several things you can do to cut costs and save some cash. Here are some tips to help you save money as a university student:
- Shorter contracts: Student Rooms 4 U offers 48 week contracts, instead of 52, which is what most agencies offer.
- No hidden costs: Our rent covers all costs, so we don’t ask for deposits, administration fees or guarantors. Our prices also cover all utilities (gas, electric, water, faster broadband) and for 6 bed houses and up, TV and license in the communal areas.
- Create a budget: Start by creating a budget and tracking your expenses. This will help you understand where your money is going and where you can cut back.
- Cook your meals: Eating out can be expensive, so try cooking your meals at home. You can meal prep on the weekends and freeze your meals for the week.
- Buy used textbooks: Textbooks can be expensive, so consider buying used or renting them. You can also check out online resources or borrow them from the library.
- Use student discounts: Take advantage of student discounts at local businesses, restaurants, and retailers. You can also use student discounts on transportation, entertainment, and software.
- Use public transportation: Instead of driving to campus, use public transportation, such as buses or trains. This can save you money on gas, parking, and maintenance.
- Get a part-time job: Consider getting a part-time job to earn some extra cash. You can find work-study jobs on campus or work at local businesses.
- Live with roommates: Living with roommates can help you split the cost of rent, utilities, and groceries.
