First, choose the right place. This is important. There are many different opinions about what is best for you when it comes to student housing. Where you choose to live as a student has to be a choice that you are happy with. The best method of approach is to start thinking about the affordability of the price of rent and whether you want a student studio, student apartment or house to share. Consider the location and the distance from your university before you decide on your accommodation.
Once you have been living in your student home, you must make sure to deal with anything about the place that bothers you. This could mean general wear and tear on the property that the landlord should alleviate for you. It could also mean making the place as comfortable as possible for you by filling it with things that give a homely, personal touch, or even keeping it clean, tidy and welcoming.
And finally, another key way to get settled into your student home is to familiarise yourself with local areas and places to go out to. You should try to get as much out of it as you can by doing things that you find enjoyable. Blend it with socialising for fun and friendship and you have a nice recipe for a happy, settled forthcoming student year.
