Why Choose Private Student Accommodation

Posted 3 Aug 2021

When considering which student accommodation to stay in there are so many options, such as shared living areas or private en-suites, university-owned halls or private student accommodation. We’ve looked at the benefits of staying in privately-owned student halls for your university experience. 

Private student accommodation simply means it is not owned by the university or dedicated to just one university. All true student private accommodations have at least two universities within easy reach. 

Purpose Built

Private student accommodation is generally purpose-built in a newer building, automatically making it more attractive than the typical halls you imagine. What’s more, the facilities are also often of higher quality. For example, all of the rooms at true come with double beds and superfast Wi-Fi access, these are just a handful of the benefits when going private. 

Regular facilities you can usually expect to see at private student accommodations include; outdoor areas, on-site gyms, communal games areas, cinema rooms, study areas and more!

Location is Everything

Private student accommodation is usually in the centre of all the action, such as bars, shops and cafes. The location of private student halls is usually carefully picked to give the perfect balance of university life whilst still being in easy reach of all things great in the city. All our accommodations are within easy reach of university campuses, so it really is the best of both worlds.

Meet More People

When you think of university you’ll think of all the new people you’ll meet. Private student accommodation is known to be super social due to the great social areas for you to meet other students from your accommodation block. These facilities are usually of a higher standard than those found in university-owned accommodations, with things such as chill-out rooms with sofas, cinema rooms, study areas and communal kitchen/lounge areas. 

Many private student accommodations also put on organised events for you to meet and socialise with those in your block. Here at true student, we have the true life programme which runs everything from cooking and fitness classes to day trips out and puppy parties. 

Better Security and 24/7 Staff

Another benefit of private student accommodation is that there’s generally better security for the building. For example, true student accommodation has a 24hr concierge, CCTV cameras and key fob access, all to keep you safe and for your peace of mind. 

What’s more, the staff at private student halls are always on hand to help, whether it be for your wellbeing, finding a certain place in the city or any other support you need. At true our team are always on hand to help you and also run a number of workshops for you to attend.
