    I'm planning to live in student accommodation during my third year which will be 2018-2019. The thing is me and a mate prefer to choose who we live with, so we decided to get a 2 bedroom flat or something similar. As neither of us have any experience looking at accommodation, where is the best place to look?

    I just replied to a similar thread with this message, hope it's useful!

    You can look at SpareRoom. It isn't student specific although I know of students that have used it. It's people who are renting and looking for a housemate (or housemates), or someone who has a spare room in their house, or is renting out their entire house/ flat for the year etc.. You can filter the results by quite a lot different criteria - price, map location, flat mate preferences, property type etc, pets allowed, smoking/ non-smoking, which is quite handy.

    It's also worth doing the search: "[Insert city name] student homes" as some universities - University of Manchester, and the University of London, for example - have websites where trusted, university vetted private landlords/ letting agents can advertise properties they have locally, including house shares.

    Some major estate agents in big student cities also have areas of their websites dedicated to listing student properties, so it's worth looking those up for your area too

    Actually, that is useful, thanks . Only question is do they include water and wifi in the bills for these places?
