They offer a wide range of room types, from a standard room to an en-suite or a whole studio (no shared facilities). Prices vary from £130 to £175 per week depending on which one students choose as their home. Standard rooms are the cheapest as bathrooms and kitchens are shared normally between 4 to 6 students. En-suites are a bit more expensive compared to standard rooms because they contain a bathroom. Studios are the most expensive option because students don’t share any facility. Studios are equipped with anything you can think of: vacuum cleaners, iron boards, irons, ovens, etc. This option is great for those who are reserved and do not like the idea of having to share facilities with other people. They are big enough to host friends over shall students desire to.
