3) Convenient Student Accommodation

Living in a Student Hall is also useful when it comes to studying! Apart from meeting new friends and its study areas… If you need a certain book for example you could use the notice board to see if somebody has a copy or you will probably find somebody still awake if you need to speak to someone about tomorrow’s exam…

4) Distance from University

Student Halls are usually conveniently located pretty close university campus! Actually, you can choose between “on campus” or “off campus” student dorms depending on your needs. In London city is more common the “off campus” one because this way you could choose to live in the neighbourhood you like the most.

5) Save Money! 

Inside Student Halls you will find all what you are going to need while you live abroad: study table, bed, shelves, chairs…

Most of them count with awesome amenities as courtyard garden, social and networking areas, quiet study areas, big screen TV and even a pool table or a table football to play with your roommates. Plus most of the times they also include a 24/7 Fitness Facility so you don’t need to pay an additional Gym fee!

Nevertheless every Student Hall has its owns features so take a look at them carefully and don’t forget your swimsuit!
