At The Cube, choose a self-sufficient studio or an ensuite bedroom in a shared flat. Whatever you go for, you’re a 10-minute walk from the University of Bolton – meaning that you can afford to spend an extra few moments in bed before early lectures. When you want to explore on weekends, walk one minute to your closest bus stop, or six minutes to Bolton train station. From there, you can reach Salford’s waterfront arts venue The Lowry or Manchester’s major mall the Arndale Centre in under half an hour.
After a busy day, walk five minutes up the road to your local Morrisons supermarket. Stock up on the ingredients you need to whip up a tasty snack in the kitchen, then head to the communal seating area to catch up with your friends. Spend an hour or two relaxing in front of your favourite IPTV series, before retreating to the privacy of your own room to focus on your studies. Grab your notes from the shelves, then spread your books out at your bedroom desk and use the free Wi-Fi to research your sources.
When you’re done, clear your head with a long, hot shower, knowing that with all bills included, you don’t have to ration your water usage. Make sure you’ve got clean clothes for tomorrow by taking your washing to the on-site laundry, then pick a new outfit and invite your friends over to get ready for a fun night out. Start your evening at popular hole-in-the-wall Indian restaurant Rice n’ Three – then sample the extensive cocktail list at sophisticated drinking spot The Bar.
