It probably feels like it was just yesterday that you were anxiously collecting your results and getting ready to head off to university in September. But five months down the line, it’s surprising how quickly life as a student passes. Before you know it, the second semester will be finished and you’ll be getting ready for your next year at university. But where are you going to live?

In years gone by, many students have traditionally lived in student accommodation for their first year at university and then they privately rent shared houses during their second and third years.

Sure, renting a property with your pals can have its benefits; it’s great for your independence, you decide where you want to live, who you want to live with and there might even be great flexibility – you can find a property that suits your needs. But it’s not all fun and games. What about the bills? Dealing directly with the landlord or letting agent? Having to trek miles into town? And more to the point, not being able to shop online because no one will be in to take delivery of your parcels!

You might not know, but regardless of your year of study, you can continue to live in our student accommodation. Here at Host, we welcome first year students, post-graduate students and anyone in between! Our accommodation has been developed for the sole purpose of accommodating students, and has been designed with students in mind.

Simply pay a fixed rent amount yearly, monthly or in instalments and we do the rest for you. You won’t have to worry about setting up new accounts or signing contracts with providers for things such as internet, insurance, gas, electric and water – we’re on it. Not only will living with us save you time and hassle, but budgeting can be easier too as you won’t have multiple bills and varying amounts to pay each month.

And the less time you have to spend chasing utility companies and managing money, the more time you’ll have to enjoy your time as a student. And what better way to enjoy it than to sit back, relax and catch up with your friends in the stylish and comfortable lounge and common areas available onsite. Or perhaps challenging your fellow residents to a game of pool? Now you wouldn’t get that in a shared house.

While you might find the perfect house to rent, it could be located just outside of the city centre and a few miles away from all of the action. But at Host, we’re all about location. Step outside of our accommodation at Lace Market Studios and you’ll find yourself right in the heart of Nottingham’s Creative Quarter – The Lace Market. With an abundance of cafes, shops, bars and restaurants located right on your doorstep, you couldn’t get much closer to the action if you tried.

What more could you ask for as a second year student? How about 24/7 security, onsite staff, maintenance and postal service? We take the hassle out of student living, so you can focus on completing your degree and enjoying student life. Oh, and you can even choose a room with your very own private balcony to soak up the British sunshine!

Bookings now open for September 2017. To find out how you can join our thriving student community at Lace Market Students please contact us today on +44 (0)1158 240 590.
