Why use Accommodation for Students

Living in Luton as a student

While to many it is most recognisable for its airport, one of London’s main international travel hubs, Luton should perhaps be best known for hosting one of the campuses of the University of Bedfordshire. Nearly 14,000 study at UoB, with a sizeable portion spending their time in Luton. Thanks to its fantastic connections to London and rest of the country, a welcoming and friendly atmosphere, Luton is a great destination for students.

There are no halls directly managed by the University in Luton, but some private halls are recommended to students. They are conveniently located on campus in a student village. Students booking there benefit from en-suite-only rooms, with standard and deluxe options available, both for 42 and 51-week contracts.

Private halls provide a good range of options too, with en-suite rooms being standard, many students opt for the more luxurious self-contained studios. Many private accommodations benefit from a great range of amenities such as private gyms and cinemas, ensuring that the social life is bustling.

Other accommodation options are, nonetheless, very popular, with many students of University of Bedfordshire choosing to rent with a group of 4 or more friends. Renting a house in such a group helps bring down individual costs and providing greater flexibility in choice of location, room sizes and furnishing type. Students will appreciate that many larger properties will have an access to a private garden—a very sough-after feature. Flats, on the other hand, often benefit from a more central location in town. They give tenants a more ‘cosy’ feel, yet not stuffy, thanks to high ceilings and large windows in period properties. Students living in Luton will appreciate fantastic transport links to central London—hopping on a Thameslink train will get anyone yearning for a big-city night out to King’s Cross St Pancras in ca. 30 minutes! Be it a flat or a house, private properties like that are typically managed by landlords or letting agents who specialise in student accommodation and there are many in Luton that have an excellent reputation for catering to students’ needs and wants.
