Last week in my student housing guide I weighed up the pros and cons of staying on campus for your later years at university, and those of moving out into a privately rented property. If you choose to stay in halls, it’s worth applying early on, and once you’ve applied there’s nothing more to do. In the rest of my housing guide, then, I’ll be focusing on the latter choice, and today I’m sharing your complete step-by-step guide to finding your second-year uni house.
One of my biggest fears during my first term at university was where I was going to live in second-year. I couldn’t believe that after just ten weeks living in halls I was expected to have found the people I was going to live with and a house to stay in. In the end, I didn’t have any of that figured out until towards the end of term two, but it was a cause of major anxiety for about half of my first year. So this year I thought I’d put together a four-post guide to second-year student housing.
