PBSA Living For Students

What is Purpose Built Student Accommodation (PBSA)?

PBSA Living For Students, now accounts for over 34% of the total bed spaces that serve the 1.89 million full-time students in the UK. Purpose built student accommodation is housing specifically built for university students by private developers. Properties are usually in one of two forms:
1. Self contained studio or “cluster” flats with private kitchens but shared living space.
2. Modern halls of residence containing en-suite bedrooms with shared kitchen, dining and living facilities.

What are the benefits of PBSA for students?

Great Study Setting

Purpose-built student accommodation options furnish a unique study atmosphere that won’t be found in regular private lets. From modern study areas equipped with study desks to reliable Wi-Fi or broadband, every PBSA offers everything a student needs and more. Student housing warrants that you find the essential peace to focus on studying and the motivation to excel in research and homework. 

Stay Safe & Secure

One of the delightful advantages of living in student accommodation is its security. Most establishments come with CCTV, on-site security, management teams, and critical fob entry systems to make sure that all the students are safe and sound at all times. According to studies, parents tend to trust these PBSAs with a high-security level instead of living in a private let; that is why in a PBSA, you can sleep soundly knowing that you and your belongings are safe.

Get Your Student Essentials

Most student accommodation comes with all-inclusive bills. This means you don’t have to be concerned about paying extra electricity, water, gas, and internet fees. Your student space will also have all the essentials, including a wardrobe, study area, storage area, and you can have your own bathroom with a shower and your own kitchen.

Pick & Decorate Your Room

Renting in a PBSA means you’ll have a wide range of rooms to choose from. You can either have your own private room in a flat and share a bathroom, kitchen, and living room with other students, have your en-suite bathroom, or you can not share at all and stay in a 1-bedroom flat or a self-contained studio. 

Always A Few Walk Away

Almost all PBSAs are within easy walking distance from major universities. Similarly, many are close to cafes, restaurants, bars, event places and shops. In addition, easy access to the transport system is also assessed, so students can walk and wander about the city and get to and from their universities with comfort.

Explore Your Social Life

Purpose-built student accommodation has various shared social areas such as communal games rooms,  rooftop terraces, cinema rooms, lounges, and shared kitchens. This way, you can meet students your age with similar interests and easily make new companions.

Student Friendly Budget

When you decide to live in on-campus accommodation, there will be more costs you’ll need to pay besides rent. For example, if you’re leasing a private flat or room, you’ll have to pay rent plus utilities as well as meals and other necessities. That’s why living in a PBSA is the most affordable option with all-inclusive bills and a shared kitchen where you can prepare foods.

Create & Build Your Community

One of the great things about living in student accommodation is that students from different cultures, backgrounds and experiences will encircle you. Furthermore, you will share your study abroad experience, which you can use to bond over. This gives students a feeling of belonging and community while away from family and friends.

Book Your Room With Ease
