Student Accommodation Parents Guide

An upcoming year at university presents an exciting proposition, whether it's the student's first experience or another spell at a seat of learning. There are a number of things that need to be arranged ahead of that all-important first lecture, and possibly the most crucial of them will be finding a place in which to live. Other issues can perhaps wait, but the quest for suitable student accommodation has to be at the top of the agenda.

And while the needs and requirements of the student in question are uppermost, input from parents should be sought and encouraged. The vast majority of students will ask for advice and guidance from mothers and fathers, if only to make sure they are making the right decisions. This is one of those issues in which help from parents can make the difference between a good property and a wonderful one.

With our help, you can find a great many student accommodation options in a matter of moments. We offer a search that's easy to use, easy to negotiate and crammed with properties of all shapes and sizes. And you can filter out selections which don't match your budget, are too big or too small and are in the wrong location. Convenience and simplicity are just a click or two away.

Mums and dads will have a wealth of knowledge in regard to budgeting, and will know which types of property will tick the right boxes. They will understand the need to make manageable financial plans and the need to be located close to the relevant university buildings. Most of the youngsters who seek student accommodation in Edinburgh, for example, will have spoken to their mothers and fathers first.

As well as thinking about the financial side of things, you need to decide which type of property will suit you best. Some students will want to make the most of the university experience by sharing a large house or flat with a number of others, but of course this scenario may not suit everyone.

Thanks to our user-friendly search, you'll be able to specify whether you want a house or flat, whether it's a short or long lease and how many bedrooms the place will have. Taking a little time at this stage will help you to pin down the ideal student accommodation well in advance of the academic year.

Whether you're a student or a parent, let Citylets show you the way.
