The benefits of renting a private house share as a Chester University student
Whether you’ve just been offered a place at Chester University or are looking ahead to next year, one of the biggest decisions you’ll have to make is choosing which student accommodation best suits your needs. From halls of residence and privately-run blocks right through to private house shares, it is important that you weigh up the pros and cons of each to ensure your student accommodation adequately meets the needs of your student lifestyle.
With many students choosing to live more independently during their time at Chester University, along with the challenges that go with living in noisy halls of residence and poorly managed private blocks, more students are opting to rent a private house with other students. Here are five benefits of renting a private house share as a Chester University student:
- You get to choose your flatmates
Student house shares can provide you with a new friendship group. Some students prefer to widen their friendship group by sharing with others who are not studying the same course. Whereas some students search together as an existing friendship group to find their perfect house share. If you are a new student and fancy living in a shared house, we can put you in touch with other students who are in the same boat and looking for similar student accommodation with the same budget.
- Repairs are attended to quickly
A private house share has the added bonus of a private landlord who will attend to repairs quickly and efficiently. There’s nothing worse than a broken boiler in the middle of winter that takes weeks to repair. Many of our private house shares are fully managed by us and are therefore attended to quickly by our approved contractors.
- Living independently
It’s really exciting having your own house and the independence that comes with it. It also gives you chance to practice managing your finances, keeping the house clean and tidy and preparing your own meals – providing you with a greater sense of independence.
- Great locations
When you’re a student at Chester University, you want to be right in the hub of everything where all amenities are within easy reach. We have a wide range of private student house shares that are located in the centre of Chester; ideal for walking to Uni or going out in the evening where you don’t need to worry about using public transport.
- Open all year round
Once you’re settled in your student accommodation, we’re open all year round to discuss any issues you may have with the house share. We’re located on Lower Bridge Street in the centre of Chester and are always happy to offer help and advice with your student accommodation needs.
