Accommodation

To see the different room options on offer, choose your city and property from the main menu. If you are unsure of which room to choose, why not arrange a viewing?

 

Our shared flats range from 3 to 7 beds. If you need any advice about which option would be right for you, our staff would be happy to help.

 

When booking directly with us, you can view floor plans for your chosen building, and you can select your own room. This gives you more control over where you will be living and who with!

 

While we can let you know the ages and genders of your future flatmates, we cannot provide their names or any other personal information. This information is present during the self-select process on line.

However, you can find your flatmates through our Facebook pages, or through your University’s social media – it’s a great way of getting to know everyone in your flat before you’ve even moved in!

 

If you’re planning on living with your friends, you’re in luck! We can accommodate groups of 4-7, depending on availability. Contact your site directly with the names of your group and we will be on hand to help.

 

Unsure of what you need to bring for your bedroom? We’re here to help!

When it comes to your bedroom, please note that we do not provide bedding. We suggest you bring along a duvet, pillows and bed linen. You may also want to bring clothes hangers, towels and a laundry bin.

While we provide some kitchen appliances, we do suggest each tenant brings their own crockery, cutlery and other kitchen utensils. Upon arrival, most students living in shared flats arrange with their flatmates to buy some communal items - we recommend this as a cheaper option which would also avoid cluttering the kitchen with multiple items.

For a full list of what we advise you to bring, check out your student handbook. If you are unable to bring certain items with you, don’t panic – there are plenty of shops close by where you can find the things you need.

 

We do not provide car parking at our sites.

We advise residents not to bring cars to our accommodation as parking can be long walking distance from our sites and also costly. 

St Lawrence House is the exception, with a limited amount of parking available.  Please contact site for costs and availability.

 

No, you cannot smoke in either your room or the communal areas of your flats. Smoking is a fire hazard and is forbidden in flats on all Abodus sites. There are designated smoking areas in every building which you are welcome to use.

 

As a tenant of an Abodus site you are more than welcome to invite guests to your accommodation. If your guest is staying overnight please let a staff member at your accommodation know. We also suggest that if you do invite guests be mindful of your flatmates: let them know before your guests arrive, and ensure you still comply with site rules regarding noise in the flat. Moreover, remember that as a tenant of an Abodus site you are responsible for the behaviour and actions of your guests.

 

It may be possible to change your room after you have moved in - we suggest you get in touch with your accommodation team on site, over the phone or through email. Please note to be able to complete a room move, your rent account will need to be fully up to date, an inspection of your room will take place and you will incur a £50 administration fee that will need to be paid before the move can take place.
