Why use Accommodation for Students

Living in Hartlepool as a student

Hartlepool is a port town and principal settlement in County Durham. The town is home to a campus belonging to The Northern School of Art. The Church Square campus in Hartlepool is a mix of modern and early 19th century buildings that have fantastic facilities and resources.

There is a large student population in Hartlepool meaning the town does have favourable accommodation prospects. There are several halls of residence in Hartlepool, including properties owned by the university and private halls of residence. The Northern School of Art offers a range of dedicated self-catering accommodation from studio flats, to three room, self-contained apartments. This accommodation is in close proximity to the campus.

Private halls are situated in superb locations, in close proximity to the town centre and the main colleges. These private halls provide students with plenty of choice including en-suite rooms with fully fitted kitchens as well as a variety of exclusive amenities. Aside from halls of residence there are other opportunities for student accommodation.

Shared houses are certainly a popular option for returning students, but also for students who feel that halls are not suited to them. This type of accommodation is particularly popular with groups of 4 or more students. In addition, flats and apartments are a prominent choice and are situated in central locations or with useful transport connections. These residences are typically managed through landlords or letting agents who are professionals in maintaining accommodation for students.
