Ever wondered where students live at university? Or how they find their housing?

In this episode, current students Ruth and Charlie explore the various housing options available to students at university. 

Sharing their own experiences of moving away to university without the support of parents, the students talk us through what it was like to live with new people and make new friends. 

Ruth and Charlie also chat about how they found their student housing, the pro’s and con’s of both halls of residence and private renting, and the processes involved in working with landlords and estate agents.
