Why you’re going to love shared accommodation

Accommodation is a big factor in your university experience but sometimes it can all go so wrong. Nightmare landlords, arguments over bills, dark and grotty rooms, the list goes on. At iQ Student Accommodation, we try to make your life a little bit easier and more enjoyable, so you can focus on studying and hanging out with friends. Here are a few reasons why living in shared accommodation really is the best.
As iQ your bills are included in your so there’s nothing for you to worry about. Forget sitting on the phone for hours on end getting passed around a call centre when your gas isn’t working or having to split each bill countless ways and chase your housemates for their payment every month, because we’ve got you covered.
The location of where you live is so important when at university; extra time in bed before your lecture, no long walks weighed down with shopping and being a short walk from your favourite pubs and clubs. All our properties are based in convenient locations, close to universities, public transport with many in the city centre. For more info on what’s close to you, why not read our city guides.
Living in a rented house usually means you have a living room where you can hang out with housemates and a desk in an often-cramped room to do all your assignments. Well at iQ, we have thought about everything you might need! Our properties often have common rooms for you to hang out in with all your friends, a free gym for you to use and designated study areas so you can get all your work done in a comfortable environment. Many of our properties also have cinemas, game rooms, communal kitchens and more, so you’ll never be bored.
Whether you’re in your first year or final year, making friends and hanging out is a big part of your experience. We understand the importance of this and have created an environment with a strong focus on community. All our sites have resident Facebook groups where you can get updates from the staff, plan events with friends and more, if you’re not already a member you can find your group here. We also run regular events, ranging from free breakfasts for you to grab on your way to those early morning lectures, cinema nights to catch up on the latest blockbuster and parties to celebrate all those big days like Halloween and Valentine’s Day.
Forget dealing with moody landlords, that may live hours away and take days to reply. At iQ each property has a friendly team ready to help you with anything you need. Whether it’s recommendations on the best pizza in town or just a friendly chat – they’re always happy to help.
