Getting the Details Right 

The most important thing to consider when moving into second year accommodation is to find the perfect one for you. Getting the basic accommodation details down is the key first step.

Who do you want to live with? 

Do you want to live with your current housemates? Do you want to move in with some people on your course? Or perhaps you want to live with a partner or even by yourself. Finding out who you want to live with and how many housemates you want is key to finding your perfect accommodation.
