The right way to find a student flat.
It’s now a fact, next year you're going to study in another city. Goodbye cosy little family cocoon, hello freedom! But before you can start the best years of your life, you need to find the perfect student accommodation (a broom cupboard with carpet on the walls, no thanks!). How do you find a cosy, well-located student flat that's within your price range? No need to stress, Nemea Appart'Etud has all the top tips.
Target your search: the criteria for the perfect student apartment
Knowing what you want is an essential! When it comes to student accommodation, you really can find anything (from an overpriced 8 m² broom cupboard to a shabby shared flat). To avoid wasting your precious time (save it for enjoying aperitifs on the terrace to celebrate your new flat!), make a list of the qualities in your ideal flat, and then compare your wishlist what you might be able to afford on the market.
Some things to keep in mind:
- Opt for a furnished rental. These are so practical as you have everything you need right there, you can move in quickly and you don't need to start stealing your parents’ cutlery.
- Pay attention to geographical location: this is probably rule number one when looking for a property, don’t choose a flat that’s miles from your place of study.
Do you already know the city where you’ll be studying? Perfect! Get an idea of prices per square metre with a few online searches and target areas with rentals in your price range (forget about that loft on the Champs-Elysées).
Choose nice neighbourhoods (not just for how many bars there are per square metre), which are lively and close to your future university or place of study (mornings are easier with less travel). Failing that pick places with excellent public transport links. Also consider the local shops (not just bars, remember!). A small supermarket or bakery is a godsend when your fridge is empty!
Focus on student residences
Avoid unpleasant surprises by opting for a student residence with proper flats (not a mini studio of a few square metres), such as the Nemea Appart'Etud residences. You can meet other students in the common rooms (bonus: parties are organised for you), while keeping your independence with your own flat (no one will be able to mock your bed hair, shame!). You also benefit from a range of practical services like a laundrette, cleaning service, Wi-Fi etc. Nemea Appart'Etud residences are modern, secure and well-equipped, so guaranteed to reassure your parents.
