    Hi guys, Ive been to check out student accommodation at Huddersfield recently.
    The Digs accommodation which is the storthes hall isn't for someone who wants an quick and easy commute to and from the campus (20 minute bus journey). However if you prefer to live somewhere with hundreds of other students and Want to benefit from all the extra social aspects that come with it then it is something to consider. The prices aren't to bad either.
    However, personally I prefer to live in close proximity to the Uni and the town centre. having the train station at a walking distance is ideal, if you are looking to spend nights out in Manchester or Leeds.
    But I still don't want to miss out on the student halls experience. Though this comes with a higher price tag.

    After some research I have come across quite a few places.
    The one that appealed to me the most was Unite students. They have 3 different locations which are all walking distance from the Uni and town centre.

    After comparing prices and locations I decided to go see Snow island. I went there and was surprised to see how close to the Uni it was... Literally across the road!

    I went in and first impressions were quite good, the reception and the common room was nice and tidy and staff were really nice.

    The room size I looked at was the classic ensuite which is the smallest they have but seemed a very good size.
    In the complex they also have Pool tables, table tennis (Courtyard) and sofas to just chill and watch Tv.

    Also I like how they have 400+ students living in the 12 blocks. And how this year 70% of them are first year students.
    Which was a shock to them as they normally have 40-50% they suspect it is due to the falling demand of the halls far out from the town.


    All in all I really like Snow island and think if you have similar wants to me you should defiantly go check it out for sure!

    There are also others to check out like little Aspley,
    The castings but they are quite expensive.
    Unite students prices are reasonable for what you are getting in return.

    Sorry for the lengthy message but that's just my take on things, I hope this helped in any way. And I wish everyone the best in finding the right place for you!

    Regards
    Ali

    If you have put down your deposit for The Castings there is currently a 2015/16 Castings Facebook group to see who you will be staying with and to exchange information.

    Hi Guys,

    I have a Room reserved at Snow island, Premium Ensuite 1 which is at £117 per week currently (44 week Contract)
    i managed to get it at £111 at the start of the year.

    Unfortunately im not going to be moving there anymore, so instead of me cancelling it i thought i would see if anyone was interested in going to Snow island and save a bit of money,

    Tenancy starts 12/09/15

    We can transfer over the tenancy which will save you £264 (6x44) over the period of the contract.

    I paid the £250 compulsory deposit, so if anyone is interested PM me and we can discuss further.

    Regards.
