how to organise gas and electricity for second year houseWatch
Student life, in partnership with UEA
There should be companies in your area that offer student packages for this to include all bills. So you pay one lump sum each month and get capped at a certain amount and if you go over this amount you pay extra. But usually, these are enough and you should not go over.
Usually, your university housing team should know about these, so definitely contact them and ask for details about utility bills for students in the area.
Or if you do decide to pay as you go with bills, as it might work out cheaper. Then split it equally between the people in your house.
A really good app for splitting bills and household items is an app called "Splitwise" and it splits it all equally for you. So you can split things like loo roll and cleaning stuff. You can add it all up so you don't have to pay each other until a certain amount. Me and my housemates always said when it gets t £10.
I hope this helps!
