When should I start booking accomodation? Watch
Hiya im starting my course at the uni of sheffield this september. Since im an international student i wont stay in the uk until then. When do I have to start searching for my place/actually booking it? There are theee possible options: 1. Uni halls 2. Private halls 3. House share and I prefer house share. Thanks for your replies.
You can start when you like, but you are at the disadvantage of not being able to see the place in person.
You may also have the issue that as an international student they will want more money up front to make sure you can pay and turn up.
Be warned if you sign a contract you are bound for the term of the contract or until you find a replacement.
Try online, but if I was unable to find somewhere then I might get here 2-3 weeks before terms starts to view places in person.
You dont say why you want a houseshare, but if I was a fresher I would choose a uni hall for social and making friends reasons.
Great to hear that you're going to be studying in Sheffield in September!
We would always recommend booking as soon as possible to ensure you get the room which you prefer.
As you're an international student and wouldn't be able to view any properties in person before you arrive we could do a video call viewing so that you're able to look around our site before you book a room.
If you're interested in looking around any of our properties, please email us at [email protected] and i can book this is for you.
