The Perfect Student Accommodation Experience
A recent study has shown that students' accommodation can directly affect their enjoyment and success at university. The study, based on a poll conducted throughout the UK, France, Spain and Italy, looks at student attitudes towards their accommodation and what they see as its most important features. Size matters for UK students, who rate a big bedroom and a double bed as ‘must haves’. When looking for the perfect student accommodation, having furniture included topped the list at 93%, closely followed by the provision of WiFi at 83% and being close to the university at 81%.
For students in continental Europe, being a part of the student community and being close to lecture theatres also ranked highly.
These stats will come as no surprise to those within the student accommodation sector as it becomes increasingly professionalised and experience driven.
