Choosing the Right Location, Right Property and Checking Local Facilities when Searching for Student Accommodation in Edinburgh

By KateForbes Subscribe to RSS | February 22nd 2012 | Views:

Edinburgh has a number of accommodation types for its students. Important thing is that you select an area, property and a house/flat mate which complements your lifestyle. If even one of these factors is not in the right direction, it is most likely that you will feel like you have landed in hell.

Choosing the right house/flat mate

You should never select someone just because he/she is a good friend. You must always check if that particular person affords to pay the rent. See if he is responsible and helpful enough to look after a house. Also see if he likes to create mess, like to smoke and generally the personally type. If you are of the view that you two can get along well only then you should make a decision. This should be a very well thought decision as sharing a roof with someone is not easy.

Choosing the right area

This is as important as choosing the right house/flat mate. This is something which will make you feel happy or miserable. In order to choose the area you must always have regard of factors like neighborhood, distance, parking, safety, local facilities etc.

Neighborhood and security Different areas have a different style of life. Some are noisy in the daytime and quiet at night and vice versa. Mostly students prefer areas which have a lively night life. If there is a particular area or property that appeals you then you must visit that area at different times to have an overview. You must particularly check if the streets are secure enough to walk around, as mostly students tend to walk to their houses. See if the streets are properly lit at night. The local crime rate should also be checked.

Many students prefer to live in areas which are occupied by other students as well. In Edinburgh an idea of studentfication can also be seen recently. Here, entire area is rented out to students. Hence if you have such a requirement then you can look for these as we.

Distance You must always select an area which is close to your place of study. Obviously you don’t want to waste your money and precious study time on the commute. You must check the cost of tickets in that area and calculate the amount you might spend monthly.

Local facilities These are essential. You must ensure that local stores, restaurants and cafes are nearby. Moreover post office, banks, public transport should all be accessible. Also check if the area has broadband facilities as there is no way you can survive without the internet.
