Students used to get a pretty rough deal. Confined to chilly, institutional halls of residence with kitchen and bathroom facilities shared between sometimes as many as 10 or 12 people, life at uni could be a little rough around the edges, to say the least.

But fast forward to 2015 and the student landscape has changed beyond recognition. If you’re headed off to uni this autumn, you can now look forward to luxury accommodation that was unimaginable only a decade ago.

So, what can you expect from today’s luxury accommodation?

At Collegiate, it means having seriously superior accommodation. Our residents can enjoy en-suite shower rooms, delightfully comfy beds and plentiful storage space. We also provide fully equipped kitchens with stylish touches like breakfast bars wherever space allows. Each resident also has their own desk space in their room, as well as free Wi-Fi and superfast broadband, all at no extra cost.

But being a luxury student doesn’t stop there. It’s all about the added extras: the private gym, the in-house cinema room, the common room or club lounge. At Collegiate we don’t just think about where you lay your head at night, we think about what you might want to do in your free time. From pool tables to flat screen TVs, we provide all you need to enjoy every moment of your uni life.

Of course we also know that you have to study! That’s why we don’t just stop at a desk area in your room, but also include seminar rooms and reading rooms wherever possible, so that your studying style can be facilitated, however you prefer to learn.

Being a luxury student is about a different mind-set. It’s about applying the expectations that an employed professional might have to the student lifestyle. Damp rooms, canteen style food and unreliable internet access are just not allowed any more. Modern students can expect and demand so much more.

In keeping with this luxurious approach, Collegiate even offers lifestyle packs for those who are coming to our accommodation from overseas, or who simply can’t face heading out to purchase the plethora of items that flying the family nest requires. From cushions to slotted spoons, we provide everything you need to be a contemporary luxury student, helping you to settle into your new Collegiate pad in comfort and style. Check out our Extra Services page for details.

Lifestyle packs are available at all Collegiate properties. For more information, visit, email or call 01235 833 642.
