Students – What to look for When Viewing Properties

What type of property are you looking for? Once you have decided on the type of property you are looking for you can narrow down your search and begin to arrange some viewings.

Students or those who are going to share with others need to consider the following:


  • How many bedrooms are in the property?  Are you prepared to share a bedroom or do you want your own room?
  • How many bathrooms are there?
  • Is there more than one shower?
  • How close is it to college?
  • Is the property near bus routes or public transport?
  • Is there broadband available in the area?
  • Is there a washing machine and/or dryer?
  • Is there somewhere to store bicycles (if you intend to use one)?
  • Is there space to study?
  • Is there enough living space?
