Most of us current students have now found next year's accommodation by now (if you haven't don't worry, read this).

So what did you find was the most influential aspect of a house when making your decisions?

I'm not at uni yet, but I still thought I'd vote anyways . I would say the overall cleanliness of the interior, so other.

Ensuite.

Currently searching for housing next year and most of us want our own bathroom. Do you know how difficult it is to find a house with 6 ensuites?

It's hard.

The most important aspect for me, was to be able to find a house without too much social interaction, because I'd die inside at the thought of it. Luckily, I was asked to live with a friend and said yes; so nothing mattered.

If that wasn't a problem, the most important aspect for me is definitely the number of bathrooms, followed by location.

Have you had any success?

Surely that's a bit unrealistic as most houses aren't built that way, and if you do find one it's going to be very expensive. If there are private halls in the area that would probably be good option - at least you're more likely to find an ensuite for everyone if you go into some purpose built student accommodation.

In a student city, there are different rules.

No success and I'm trying not to think about housing right now.

Things will work out if you just don't think about it.

James is right - your best bet is to book up a flat with a private student accommodation provider like Unite. It's probably gonna be expensive, but it's the only way to combine living together with having your own bathrooms (and your privacy more generally). However, you will need to book early and let them know of your preference so that they can put you all together.

Also, can you stop sounding like a basic white w*myn, thanks x

Excuse me, I've found plenty of 6bd-6bth mansions in Kensington and Chelsea! They've got their own lounges and spa rooms and everything!

Yeah, we have one booked as a 'backup' but student accommodation is no fun, getting a house makes me feel like a grown up :rolleyes: Idk, we might have to split and just get 2 houses in the same neighborhood.

Fine. Nah bruh, gonna live out in da hood with mah kfc and the lads G

2 houses would be a lot more reasonable!!! It's that or Unite Students :3

I imagine that this is what London slang is perceived to be like up in the posh areas of Manchester

None of the above:

-- Kitchen size: Neither me nor my flatmate spend a lot of time in the kitchen. It's somewhere to cook food, end of. Since there's only 2 of us, and we don't eat at the same time, there was no need to look for a big kitchen.
-- No. of bathrooms: Again, there's 2 of us. No need for more than 1 bathroom. Even last year when there were 3 of us sharing, one bathroom would have been fine and we happened to get 2.
-- Size of bedrooms/equal size: I'm not fussed about bedroom size. I had a huge room last year and it sucked. The heating was bad so it was always cold and being a large room didn't help. I'm not worried about getting equal size rooms, providing there are no issues with rooms being too small. About the only thing I really want is a decent sized desk and maybe somewhere to put my piano. The flat I'm in next year has an alright sized desk and my piano will go in the living room since we won't use it.
-- Location: I have legs, so no issues walking to uni. I don't roll out of bed 5 minutes before class so I'm not worried about being too far away. Last year it was a 20 minute walk to uni. This year I've got a flat right behind my uni buildings. Wasn't a priority though.
-- Age of house: Providing it's not falling down, age doesn't matter.

Honestly the main things are whether I could see myself living there and whether it's properly maintained. The flat we've found is really nice, looks modern, kept clean, current tenants are mature and don't make a mess, and we couldn't see any glaring faults with it. It's a little expensive, but with bills included and a close location to the uni we didn't mind. Last year I prioritised somewhere to park my car and something fairly cheap. I ended up with a huge desk but that was the only real redeeming feature. The rest of the house had problems. Having learned from that, we focused on finding a clean, well kept house or flat next year.
