The Student Experience Report 2013 released by the National Union of Students (NUS) shows that 84% are happy with the standard of accommodation for students throughout their university life. This level of satisfaction does not seem to be affected by the year of study, which means that students tend to adapt easily to the changes of accommodation that are likely to happen during these years. It’s fair to say that the quality of accommodation for students has improved in the last decade and as a direct consequence has led to higher satisfaction amongst students.
According to this report, first year students tend to choose student halls whilst second and third year students are likely to source privately let accommodation. Often, these students will choose to live with the people they got along best with during their time in halls or friends met on their course. Mistoria Estate Agents offer a wide variety of standards of accommodation for students, many of them with a large number of bedrooms, perfect for those groups of friends looking for accommodation to share. It was also reported that it’s not all about having fun. The vast majority of students expect to have a “student zone” in their room, equipped with a desk, chair and internet connection. At Mistoria all our student accommodation come with these features as standard in each and every bedroom.
The report also details the main reason for disagreements and fallouts between student housemates. Unsurprisingly, that is utility bill payments. At Mistoria, the weekly and monthly rent costs for all our accommodation for students includes electricity, gas, water and WiFi broadband so these issues are easily avoided.
Despite the importance and responsibility of finding the right place to live, it was also reported that majority of students enjoy the process of looking for accommodation. They are excited to see the different standard of accommodation for students available and actively look for help and advice from letting agents. The Mistoria Estate Agents team will happily show students around a number of properties they feel will suit that particular group and help guide them into making the best decision for their individual needs and preferences.
