Moving away from home can be a big life change, but having the right adaptations to make your living area comfortable will make it much easier to get used to.
If you are moving into accommodation provided by the university – such as halls, you will need to talk to the university about adaptations and any additional adjustments you may need.
If you will be living in rented accommodation which is not provided by the university, you will need to do a lot more research into the suitability of the property for your needs. This can be tricky, but organisations such as Unipol can help you.
When choosing where you will live, remember to consider your travel to classes and activities.
It is also worth starting to think about any other help you may need. If you will be relying on home-help for cooking or cleaning, you should start to think about the costs associated with this and how that will fit into your budget and lifestyle as a student.
