University residences which are generally full of first year undergraduates are a great way to adjust to living away from home and making new friends. Uni halls are usually located close to campus.
Generally offer a higher level of amenities than University Halls, at higher rents. Will be home to a more diverse mix of students and normally located close to campus.
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.
Either a premium room in a Private Hall of Residence or a self-contained flat or apartment where all of the amenities are in one space. Typically the most expensive option.
A room in a house where the landlord or owner currently lives. A good option if you are not too concerned about living with other students and are budget conscious.
A self-contained room, which includes most amenities but with shared bathroom facilities.
A room available in a house share, where a group of existing housemates want to fill an empty room. A good way of getting the benefits of a house share without an established group of friends.
Middlesex is a historic, former county in England, now part of Greater London. It gives its name to University of Middlesex, located in Hendon, London with a student population of ca. 20,000 students. Thanks to its location in London, the MDX benefits from fantastic transport links and is a welcoming destination for students from around England and the world.
The University lists 5 halls that it recommends or manages on its website, with a variety of rooms on offer: single en-suite rooms seem to be most prevalent across different halls, with room size differing between particular buildings. Uni halls benefit from study rooms and arrangement of rooms into flats, thanks to which students can socialise in the communal kitchens or other common spaces.
Private accommodation market in London is perhaps the largest in the country. Over 100 halls of residence are present with students able to choose from a long list of UK’s top providers. Rooms on offer are in high standard and can be expected to benefit from modern décor, en-suite bathrooms or being fully self-contained, and fantastic amenities. Majority of private halls have a reception and 24h security service.
Steep London prices mean that students often choose to rent with a group of 4 or more friends. Sharing a large property can help bring down individual costs while giving flexibility in terms of location, furnishing type or building type—modern or period. Many students choosing a house further away from Central London will appreciate a presence of a back garden, while those choosing to live more centrally will have access to many beautiful parks in the inner city. Flats are always popular too. They are especially suited to students hoping to move in with a partner or who prefer a smaller number of flatmates. Flats tend to feel more cosy, but many will remain airy and bright thanks to high ceilings in many period properties. Be it a house or a flat, a property like that is likely to be managed by a landlord or a letting agent. London, being the large city it is has a lot of them, with quite a few specialising in student letting. Many have an excellent reputation for catering to students’ exact needs and wants.
