    nope - but there's a couple of agencies the uni recommends - one is chris shorey, the other.... maybe 'clever student lets' or somethin like that - they can match you to a house and an area - and all bills are incl

    Hello there

    Most students live in/around Mutley Plain and North Hill. There is lots of bars, pubs and shops in this area. Rent for the average student room will be £60-70 for a single and up to £100 for a large double with en-suite. Can get to the uni from these places with 5-20mins...depends how quick you walk. You'll be a short bus ride from town or a 15min walk.

    Areas to avoid:

    North Prospect - Don't think there is any student lets there, but avoid. It's a large council estate plagued by bad boy chavs

    Barn Barton - It's a dump

    Devonport - Not bad in places, but can be a bit iffy.

    Stonehouse - Dodgy in places

    Union Street - Close to city centre, but this is plymouth main club street, so gets a touch rowdy after 10. Bit of a dump also.


    Nicer areas (prices to match)

    Mannamead
    Compton
    Hartley
    The Hoe - Will be pricey as by the seaside
    West Hoe - I live here. Resedential. Can walk to city centre in 10mins. 20-30mins walk to uni, or 10min bus journey. Touch pricey, but it's pretty dead, so a safe place to live.

    Other areas

    Stoke - Fairly quiet place
    Keyham - Family/residential
    Crownhill - Too far out for most students. Quiet though.
    Eggbuckland - as above
    Cattedown - Closeish to city centre, not much in the way of student lets. There is a lot of private lets there though
    Prince Rock - Residential area

    Ermm...send us a message if you require any extra info. Lived in Plymouth since 98, so can answer most things.
