What do students really want from accommodation?

In Goggle Box style, we see what prospective students value most when looking at their university accommodation.

We sat down sixth form students applying for university and asked them what they really look for in their accommodation.

Forget en-suites, price or what facilities nearby, it turns out the smaller details are what makes accommodation appealing. After all, stopping your flatmates nabbing your chocolate stash with lockable cupboards is extremely important!

Students care about their living space being homely, with a separate living and dining areas to give them lots of spaces to chill out other than their bedrooms.

Aware that all students want something different from their experience, many spoke of the importance of variety. The party lifestyle isn’t for everyone, and some students would prefer quieter accommodation further from the hustle and bustle of campus.
