Student Halls Aberdeen
There are only two universities in Aberdeen, but the city has a long-standing academic tradition traced back to 1495. A comparatively large student population ensures that you will have no shortage of uni mates, many of whom you will live with if you choose to settle in one of Aberdeen’s 25 halls of residence. Student satisfaction rankings are topped, as is often the case, by private halls which typically supply high-quality, yet affordable housing. Fans of period building who prefer private accommodation will be particularly happy, as a number of commercial operators offer rooms in beautiful, old buildings, adapted for student comfort, safety, and wellbeing. Modern, purpose-build accommodation is present and ever-popular too, of course, with most of top 10 accommodation venues being modern, private halls. Prices are varied, but are generally low—you can expect weekly rents of about half of those in London.
Most privately operated halls of residence are located between Castlegate, University of Aberdeen and Old Aberdeen, giving students a short commute to lectures, as well as close proximity to the city’s historic centre and the always-important social venues—check out all the quaint bistros and restaurants, as well as clubs—Aberdeen has loads of them! As opposed to some other coastal cities, Aberdeen offers little to no accommodation right on the sea-front, as that space is typically occupied with green areas for leisure—make sure to scout out your favourite spot for running, cycling or even picnicking—weather allowing, of course.
Should you choose them, rooms, flats and houses are a fantastic option, too. Locations, as you suspect, vary greatly; so do prices. Many students opt for sharing with a group of friends in a larger flat or a house—this allows them to benefit from lower per-tenant costs and gives much greater flexibility in choosing a property. As Aberdeen benefits from a relatively small square-mileage, you might not need to factor in transport costs—even if your accommodation is further away from your uni, it is likely to be within a fair walking/cycling distance; a brisk walk in the fresh Scottish air will surely do you no harm. For days of foul weather or when you are running late, make sure you are up to date on services and ticket prices of Aberdeen’s main bus company. Good train and coach services bring the picturesque Scottish countryside within your reach (or rather within a short drive).
Settling in a mid-sized city such as Aberdeen may at times feel difficult—the properties seem both numerous and few at the same time, and you may be switching between a few accommodation sites. Relax, though—with studenthalls.co.uk all these issues will simply disappear. We are a trusted site that collates all the most relevant and best student halls in the area, ensuring that you will find your dream accommodation quickly and efficiently.
