The awkward talks about who will be going in that room is always a tough one, but someone has got to do it. And if it does fall down to you, then embrace it, it’s not that bad! So if you do find yourself living in the smallest room, then don’t worry, we have a guide to help you make the most of the experience.

Picking your perfect flatmate

If you don’t go out, then make sure your flatmates understand that and are quiet when coming back from a night out, and not having an ‘after party’ back at yours! However, if you love a party and know you […]

Decorate your uni room in style

Be the trend setter of your uni friends with these interior design trends perfect to brighten up your uni room. If you have got into your room and are thinking you have no idea what to do with this huge bare room, fear not! We have some great ideas to help you make the most of your room and show you how to decorate your uni room in style.   Add lighting While natural daylight is great, it is always good to have some additional lighting to your room.

We would suggest the Pixar style lamp, these are cheap, and look great too!   Add a rug A rug tends to finish off a room, they not only look good but they are also very practical. As you are in university accommodation, any marks or damages will have to be paid for, and so a rug will help clear any spillages on the floor, meaning no charges will be coming your way! The in-trend rugs at the moment are the geometrical style. They draw your eye into a focal point, allowing you to […]

Student guide to moving into your new house

It’s getting to that time where you are moving into your new house, ready to start another year of uni! You have found the perfect new home, now it’s the hard part…trying to fit all your possessions into one car. Once you have managed to play Tetris with it all, it is time to head to your new house.

Student guide to help setting up your utility bills

Moving into a new house can be difficult and stressful. Therefore you want to try and make the move as stress free as possible. Setting up your utility bills for a house share can be difficult, especially if you are living with multiple people. It is important you think about when your bills are due and how you are going to pay them on time. The best way we would suggest is to split the responsibility. So everyone is involved with prioritising the bills and making sure they are paid on time.   Split the responsibility We would recommend splitting the bills as it involves everyone and no one is left with the sole responsibility. For example, each tenant takes on the responsibility of either gas, electricity, water, Wi-Fi or TV licence. Then when each of the bills are due, each tenant collects the money from each housemate. This makes it quick and simple, and is fair for each housemate. One thing to remember if taking this approach, each tenant must have enough money to pay for the whole bill unless you get payment upfront.   Download a bill splitting app As a student you may be use to apps […]
