I knew that I needed to find student flats in Edinburgh to look at before I committed to studying there. It would not do me much good if I was accepted at university only to find that I had no place to live. I don’t have access to a lot of money, but my parents offered to help me while I am in school, which was a huge blessing. Since it is not my money that will be spent to lodge me, I wanted to make sure that I found extremely affordable housing for myself.
That was easy to do when I found some student flats that are not far from the university. The one thing that I really liked is that I would not be on my own. There are three other people who would be living in the same flat, which would help to cut down on costs as well. While there are four people sharing things like the kitchen, laundry, shower rooms and other things, we each have our own private bedroom that is large enough to have a desk and other things too. I was able to look at all of the available flats to see which one was most to my liking.
There were quite a few available when I started looking, and I was happy to see that I could look at each room online. Rather than just describe the room, each one had multiple pictures so I could get a better idea. That is what really helped me the most, because a picture is worth a thousand words! I really liked one room in particular, and I was able to apply for it online. The application process was easy, and it did not take long to find out that the room was mine if I wanted it!
