Now comes the stressful part on what to pack, but don’t worry we have a guide to help you decide what to take to university and what you can live without!   As most people haven’t been away from home for more than 3 weeks, it can be very difficult to know what to pack and leave at home.

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. It can be daunting moving into a new house. So we have tried to make it easier for you and created a list to help make sure you haven’t missed anything!   Make sure all paperwork is signed before moving into your new house Before you move in, every tenant from the house needs to make sure they have completed all their paperwork.

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 […]
