FAQ: Does the price of student accommodation change depending on where I study?

Does the price of student accommodation change depending on where I study?

Unfortunately, yes it will. The price of living in a city like London will put your costs up dramatically compared to living and studying in a rural university. That being said you shouldn’t let it put you off, the cost of accommodation will always be difficult to manage as you’re a student and will be most likely operating on a limited budget, so keep things in perspective and don’t be downhearted by the price of the accommodation. However, the upside of this is that you can also see an increase in your student loan as a result of more expensive accommodation, so don’t be put off by a big city move, just yet!
