Moving Out

By Sarah Wayman

Thursday 13 January 2011 Student Accommodation

When you are leaving your student accommodation it’s important to consider a few things.

Often student accommodation will be let on a shorter contract – so it may end in May or June. Make sure your next contract matches up with this or you have made alternative arrangements over the summer months.

Student accommodation is often designed to be soundproof, secure and to accommodation student lifestyles. If you are moving into the private rented sector, this will not necessarily the case. Older houses probably won’t be sound proof, they will be unlikely to have security gates and key codes and streets will be full of people who don’t want to be woken up during the night!
