Book yourself a student room in Nottingham sharing a six-bedroom terraced house less than a mile from the heart of the city. Unpack in your double bedroom, organise clothes in the wardrobe, books on the desk and headphones and chargers in the bedside table. Switch off each evening and watch the flat-screen TV in your room, or settle down on the sofa in the lounge and get to know your housemates.
Use local market goodies to make lunch in the shared kitchen where you’ll find two fridge freezers, hob, oven, washer and dryer. There are three shower rooms and you’ll feel completely at ease knowing all the bedrooms are fitted with thumbturn locks. On sunny days, head out into the garden to enjoy a barbecue. If budgeting isn’t your strong point, pay a little extra each week to make your rent all inclusive.
