I was wondering if anyone on here is going, and have decided about accommodation? I'm looking at house shares around Plymouth as Unite is so pricey, but I don't want to be stuck on my own or with loads of people just from Plymouth Uni!
Thanks for any information

Hi There
You can enquire with Clever Student Lets or Sams Accommodation they may be able to help you in finding others from Plymouth College of Art who are looking for privet accommodation (I believe they have done in the past).
Very best of luck with it all!

Hi My name is James and I have a daughter in Plymouth half way through her midwifery degree. She has a spare room and would offer rent free accomodation in exchange for helping out with her 2 boys aged 4 and 5. She often has to do night shifts at the local hospital (Derriford) and lives alone with the boys.

Can you see this as being of interest to you?

My 2 friends and I are going to Plymouth College of Arts and we're all taking Game Arts and we're all still looking around for accommidation and we found out houses are a whole lot cheaper than Halls and such, but we can't seem to find some that are strictly 3 bedroom, which is ashame since they both have a bit of anxiety and having an accommidation of 6+ other people will be a bit much, especially if they're the loud and partying type lol.

Yes! I'm planning on studying film - anyone else? I've had a look around at accommodation and it is very pricey. I'm travelling overseas so I know nobody to even share with. I'm considering 'The Clubhouse' although it only has 8 rooms. It sucks that they prefer 'groups' to share accommodation

​update - 'the clubhouse' is completely booked up!

I'm going in September, I'm most likely going to halls but I've hit road block too.

I'd be looking really to share a house with a few people, there are some pretty cheap ones that have good rates for groups, anyone thinking similarly? It would be great to be able to form a small group to get a place with on here, I really don't want to be paying £125 per week for halls when I could be paying £70 privately for an en-suite room!
(I'm studying Illustration and am not a totally mad partying type- if that helps :P)

I'm looking at the Unite Students Accommodation, but I am wondering which would be better, Central Point or Discovery Heights? Also their price is still a bit high :c

Central Point is cheaper and I think marginally closer and the accomodation has just been done up so it is very modern.

I was originally planning on Central Point however the price is very high and the reviews were low. I'm now thinking about getting a shared accommodation however I don't know anyone yet! If anyone is interested in getting a few people together to get a house it'll be way cheaper, so let me know!

I decided to book a room to a shared student house with a more reasonable price, I found it through spareroom.com, there are actually quite a lot of options, that seems trustworthy and in good conditions. Central Points seems a little too expensive for me too, especially for the first year.

Hi,

I have 1 double room available in shared house on North Road East, it is with Plymouth Uni people at the moment but when I was there plenty of people went through unite and into shared houses and got mixed so I don't think it is an issue. If you are interested let me know. Its a nice big room and the house has just been refurbished. The rent is £94 which includes all your bills, TV licence and internet.
