Securing student accommodation that looks great and doesn’t break the bank can be tricky – especially for aspiring nurses and medical students.
Due to varying timetables, workloads, and shift patterns, sharing a place with students studying something other than healthcare can be a bit of a nightmare.
Whilst you’re trying to get an early night in preparation for your new placement, your housemates are getting ready for a night out in town. And when all you want is your bed after working the night shift, those staying at your student accommodation insist on blaring music and making a racket in the kitchen!
The good news is, here at Caro Lettings, we provide some of the best student accommodation Liverpool has to offer for healthcare students, allowing you to concentrate on your studies. We even provide ‘medical student only’ type clusters where you’ll be housed with people on the same or a similar course to yourself.
Here are just a few things you should consider when finding student accommodation that ticks all the right boxes.
3 tips for choosing student accommodation that suits your timetable
1. Do your research
Depending on your course, you’ll be studying at university for 3 or 4 years – so it’s only right you want to find the perfect place to stay.
When looking for student accommodation, you mustn’t rush. Instead, narrow your options down by setting yourself a budget to ensure you don’t overspend.
It’s also worth making a list of the amenities you want from your student living, and arranging viewings so you can tick these off as you go.
2. Check the distance to your uni
Moving away from home for the first time can be daunting and exciting at the same time. After all, there are lots of new people to meet, places to see, and things to experience.
Most first-year medical students opt to stay in university halls, as it gives them a chance to socialise with classmates and adjust to their new environment without having to worry about liaising with the landlord directly. Halls are also conveniently located, meaning you won’t need to travel too far to attend lectures and visit the library.
Saying that, though, our student accommodation in Liverpool is within easy reach of the city’s major universities – Liverpool University, John Moores, and Hope. Ideal if you oversleep, or forget your coursework or lunch and need to nip back for it.
3. Check the facilities on offer at your student accommodation
Before you secure student accommodation, it’s important to find out what facilities are available at the property, and refer to your list of ‘must-have amenities’.
The great thing about our student lets in Liverpool is that we have various flat sizes available, and every room comes with a ¾ or double bed.
Our rooms also have an en-suite. This not only provides you with the privacy you need when studying to be a nurse or healthcare professional, but also saves you the hassle of waiting for one of your housemates to get out of the shower, so you can brush your teeth and head out the door.
At Caro Lettings, we can help you to find accommodation that looks great and boasts fantastic facilities – including an on-site gym, lounge area with comfy sofas and LCD TV, and shared kitchen and eating area. We provide affordable monthly rents too.
