Grab as much sleep as possible each morning when you live on Victoria Park Road and can walk to Leicester University in around 10 minutes. The walk will take you through the gorgeous green space of Victoria Park where on weekends you can go for a jog or ride your bike along tree-lined pathways. Cycle to classes at De Montfort University in around 15 minutes. When you want to go into the city centre to do some shopping or have a night out, you’re less than 20 minutes away by bus.
When you’ve spent the day in lectures and tutorials, come home to the 11-bedroom house you’ll share with friends and chat about your day. Watch TV in the lounge as you relax and tuck into some supper. Make plans to try the local restaurants, heading to Barceloneta for tapas and sangria or OGGI Simply Italian for a comforting bowl of pasta.
Feeling full, return home and retreat to your bedroom, or the self contained apartment if you’ve opted for the extra space and privacy, to get on with some study. Lie back on your bed and read over your notes, or pick up your laptop and start researching your next paper. In a large share house there’ll always be someone on hand when you want to practise your presentation or run through ideas.
