Advantages and disadvantages of living in school Manchester student apartments
Safer environment: when you come to study abroad alone, your studies are important and your personal safety is even more important. With this in mind, it is best for students to live in a school dormitory during their first year in the UK. This way, you don’t have to deal with outside landlords and agents, you don’t have to worry about being scammed, and you can communicate well with your international classmates.
Save yourself the hassle: you don’t have to worry about your utility bills when you live in the dormitory. You don’t have to pay for it yourself.
Proximity to the university: Some halls of residence are located on the university campus, while others are located close to the university and its library, making them ideal for students. If you come to the UK and live close to the university, you will be able to visit the campus more often and get a feel for it. At the same time, you won’t oversleep and miss your classes, so you can sleep more.
Not being free: The biggest disadvantage of living in a dormitory is that it is not very private and there are limits to your freedom. Also, you can’t choose your roommates, and you don’t always get along with them.
High prices: Halls of residence at UK universities are not cheap and are much more expensive than off-campus group homes.
Tight hostel places: With the dramatic increase in the number of students studying in the UK, demand for university halls of residence in the UK is outstripping supply and places in good halls are very tight. The UK is only so big, so there’s a good chance that if you want to live in university halls of residence, there won’t be any seats available.
Advantages and disadvantages of renting off-campus Manchester student accommodation
Save money: off-campus rentals are half the price of university halls of residence in the UK. Studying abroad is a significant expense and for many students’ families, choosing to rent off-campus can save them a fortune.
Freedom: Students can choose to share a room with people they know or have similar interests, and together they can help each other out and share interesting stories. Having a friend like this in a foreign country makes you feel less lonely and you can enjoy your time in a hostel better.
Larger rooms: Off-campus rentals are larger, so you will have more space to live and move around in, and you will be more comfortable.
Reduced security: Many students rent in areas that are not always close to living areas and some areas are often subject to break-ins. There are also a lot of alcoholics in the UK and it can be very unsafe to come across them on your way home.
Unscrupulous landlords: Students may encounter unscrupulous agents and landlords who can make things difficult for them and increase the cost of rent, or force you out.
Too much worrying: You will have to worry about the monthly utility bills and find someone to fix the broken facilities in your rented apartment, and you will have to pay for the repairs yourself.
