Find a New Home near Your New University


Friday 20th August 2010

The record A-Level results announced yesterday have led to a frantic scramble for university places, and of course student accommodation. But with limited places on most academic courses and a stringent shortage of accommodation available for students, some people are going to struggle to secure a room over their head, even if they do get a university placement.

One option is to purchase a new build home near, or within commutable distance to your future university, or better still, get your parents to invest in a property for you! That way you could simply let out the spare rooms to other students, which would help to pay the mortgage.

New Homes in Bristol
Students attending Bristol University may wish to checkout Tallsticks at Cheswick, Long Down Avenue, in Bristol, BS16. This new build home development, which features a selection of contemporary two, three and four bedroom homes, is being constructed by Redrow Homes, with prices starting from £197,995.

New Homes in Newcastle
Newcastle University is not located far from the Holyfield - West Allotment new homes development, one of Bellway Homes most popular schemes. Located in the heart of an exciting and rapidly expanding new residential area, this scheme features large three and four bedroom homes, 10 miles away from Newcastle City Centre. The new build homes range from £185,000 to £320,000.

New Homes in London
There are a plethora of universities in and around the capital, but the supply of new build homes and resale homes is limited. The ideal location for a home in London will naturally depend on which university you get into. A property centrally located would be easily commutable to anywhere in the capital.

City Quarter, a striking landmark development that integrates contemporary architecture with the magnificent restoration of a Grade II listed Victorian building, is located in Leman Street, E1. The project features a selection of 42, one and two bedroom apartments and two and three bedroom duplex and triplex penthouses. But prices start from an eye-watering £1m.

New Homes in Liverpool
Mann Island is suited to anyone attending the University of Liverpool or Liverpool John Moores University. This is a fantastic development comprising 376 one, two and three bedroom luxury apartments, in a premium waterside location adjacent to the Pier Head, a world heritage site on the banks of the Mersey.

New Homes in Sheffield
Located in the attractive village of Wales near Sheffield The Poplars, by Morrfield Homes, features 11 three and four bedroom houses, within commutable distance to both Sheffield University and Sheffield Hallam. The Warwick four bedroom and the Richmond three bedroom detached houses will appeal to those who like a classic style, while the development is completed with the four bedroom detached Regal, and the three bedroom Focus townhouse.
