Second Year University Accommodation

March, 2022

Thinking about second year university accommodation? The prospect of leaving halls for your second year of university can be daunting but is also a really exciting time too. Read our tips listing 5 things you should know when searching for your second year accommodation.

1. Who shall I live with after leaving halls?

This is your time to move out of halls and move in with a group of people of your choice! You can find housemates from your course, current university halls, societies and groups that you’re a part of or even through friends of friends. If you haven’t found your people but don’t want to live by yourself, agencies will have a number of shared houses available to individuals, often with the same year group.

2. What type of student property should I go for?

Student University halls can be great for meeting new people, having maintenance/security on site, and the privacy of your own space/ensuite. However, living in a student house gives you that home away from home feeling where no room is the same, freedom to dress your room (within reason!) to reflect your personality and more importantly you get to choose who you live with, making every day more sociable! You tend to get more space, easier access to parking and a garden as well.

Here at Tudor Price Lettings, you can search for Plymouth student properties by the number of bedrooms and by type of property, making it as easy as possible for your to find the right second-year student accommodation.

3. Where should I look for a student home?

Luckily there is so much choice about and agencies will have lists of properties for you to look at.

5. Where are the best student houses in Plymouth?

This really does depend on what you’re looking for and what is more important to you. Location, size, modern vs period features, parking, garden, storage…. All factors to think about when defining the ‘best’ house.

After the lively experience of living on campus during their first year, we have found that a lot of Plymouth second and third-year students have opted for the quieter, pleasant St Judes area, close to up-and-coming Ebrington St, the beautiful Beaumont park, and still only 10 mins walk to campus.
