Student halls to rented accommodation
Student accommodation in Cardiff often starts out in student halls for the first year, these offer a great way of introducing new students into an independent lifestyle away from the family home but also offer a fantastic way of integrating into student life, making new friends both on and off your course and introduce students into the pro’s and con’s of living with other students. This last point is often very important when it comes to choosing flatmates for rented accommodation which the majority of students will embark upon on their second year.
Letting agent or landlord?
When it comes to choosing student accommodation many students will face the decision of having to go through an agency or an independent landlord. Both of which have their positives and negatives and it’s really up to the individual students to which aspects they value the most. It will serve well to remember to do some background checks of the letting agent or the landlord, whether it be from online reviews or talking to past tenants.
