It is finally here, your kid has passed their exams and they have been accepted to university. It is a proud moment for you and your family, but now there is a lot to do. Most notably, your child will be staying away from home and it’s too far to travel home every day. For that reason, you need to find student accommodation in Sheffield that is suitable and won’t cost an arm and a leg.
There are a number of things to look out for when searching for accommodation and some things that your child really needs if they are to make a success of this experience.
- Try to find accommodation that is fairly close to the university. You do not want to be travelling for an hour before you even sit down in the lecture hall. You will be tired before lessons have begun.
- While it is important that your child meets new people, you don’t want them in a house that offers little privacy. There will be times when private study is needed, so try to get them their own room that they don’t have to share with someone else.
- The internet is essential for today’s kids, so the property must have Internet access to ensure an active social life, but also for research when essays need to be submitted.
Be sure to start your search early before all the good accommodation options are gone. Your child and thousands of others have been accepted to this university and they will all be looking, just like you.
