A house share with a group of friends is often the lowest cost option and popular as the next step after living in Halls. Typically located in student friendly areas which require some travel to University.
A flat or apartment is similar to a house share on a smaller scale and will normally have one or two bedrooms. Ideal for smaller groups or couples.

Living in Bradford as a student
The city of Bradford is home to many of the 13,000 students at the University of Bradford. Bradford is located in West Yorkshire and is the third largest city in Yorkshire.
There are many student properties across Bradford to cater for the student population. At the University of Bradford, there are two university managed halls and 14 halls that are managed by private accommodation providers. The university managed halls range from en-suite rooms that are grouped into flats of 6 bedrooms, to 12-bedroom flats that have shared communal areas. There are a variety of options offered by the university in order to reflect the different needs of each student.
In private accommodation, there are often en-suite rooms, with the option to upgrade to a studio apartment. Private accommodation is located a short walk from the university campus and is often close to Bradford town centre.
Although many students choose to live in halls, there are also private houses available within Bradford. Many second- and third-year students choose to move away from halls and into their own homes with their peers. This accommodation is usually suited to groups of three or more tenants. Private houses will usually include double bedrooms, and shared bathroom and kitchen facilities. Private student properties are offered by private landlords or letting agents who have years of experience in supporting the student population across Bradford.
