Student Rooms 4 U – The Right Choice
Coming to university is an exciting time, and one of the biggest factors you’ll need to consider is where to live. There are plenty of choices, from student halls and private rentals to going through estate agents for single occupancy or flat shares. With so much choice, it can be hard to know what to go for. In this article, we’d like to highlight the factors that we believe make Student Rooms 4 U an excellent choice when choosing your student accommodation.
A Short Walk to Uni
At SR4U, all of our properties are just a 7-minute walk away from the university (within 250 metres). When you’re getting familiar with a new town, it will certainly be handy to have the campus right on your doorstep – particularly if you’re not very good at getting up in time for morning classes!
Our rentals aren’t cold, faceless buildings that are hard to settle into. In fact, you’ll find that your student rental feels like a home away from home, and that our properties are modern, well presented, with stylish furniture and attractive décor. Communal spaces in particular are a pleasant place to spend time in your new home.
Properties to Suit You
Some people like to be in a big, bustling house share with more than a dozen other students, whereas others prefer the more intimate setting of a two or three bed house share, where you can build close relationships with the people you live with. Whatever appeals to you, we have options to suit – just get in touch and let us know your requirements. We understand that not all of our properties will be suitable for all our students, and don’t be put off if you can’t immediately find what you’re looking for. We’ll be more than happy to discuss your preferences.
If the thought of setting up and managing the monthly bills, and trying to divide things about between your flatmates sounds like your idea of hell, don’t worry – at SR4U, we’ve got it covered. Electricity, gas and water bills are all included in your rent, so that’s one less thing to worry about!
Forget the Paperwork
Another unique factor of renting with SR4U is that we keep the initial paperwork plain and simple. To rent with us, we don’t require a deposit or extra admin fees, nor do you need a guarantor to rent with us, and you won’t be subjected to credit checks. We’ve been running since 1998 and are happy with our system, which manages to work perfectly without all these extra stress factors.
No Middle Man
Everything is done directly through us, as we’re both your estate agent and your landlord. There’s no middle man, no to-and-fro passing on messages. Whatever you need, come straight to us and we’ll provide assistance directly.
I’m sure you’ve heard horror stories of house shares where one unscrupulous individual decides to do a runner without paying their rent, or are unreliable when it comes to contributing their share for bills, leaving the cost with their housemates. At SR4U, we operate on an individual tenancy basis, which means that you only ever pay for your share of things. If one of your flatmates decides uni isn’t for them and heads home, you won’t be left paying their share of the rent and aren’t responsible for their fees, so rest easy.
The thing we’re best known for at SR4U is our personal service. With no middle man, you’ll be dealing directly with us and we’re always happy to hear from you. We understand that each customer has different needs, and we won’t try and force you into a house share you aren’t comfortable with. We provide a range of different properties and so talk to us about your preferences. We’ll do everything we can to find you the perfect home, whether you want to live in a big group or a small one, or have friends already that you’d like to share with.
