The Number of University Students Living in Privately Owned Halls Has More Than Doubled in the Last Seven Years – Safe Removals Comment


London, England -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/24/2015 -- According to a recent study by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA), the numbers of second and third year undergraduates who are shirking the more conventional house shares has more than doubled from 46,000 in 2007 to 102,000 in 2014.

These halls of private accommodation are equip with built in WiFi, big screen TVs, onsite gyms, reading rooms and private cinemas. Most of these halls also have 24 hour security measure in place, which will make a difference too, as much second and third year accommodation which is notorious for being broken into.

The halls were originally created when university provided first year accommodation was becoming overfilled; however, Heriberto Cuanalo, director of upmarket student halls providers Collegiate AC, has revealed that on the number of students in their halls being second and third year students in 2015-2016 has seen a 40% increase from 2014-2015.

Cuanalo commented on the increase: "There has definitely been a significant change within the student accommodation landscape, with privately owned halls becoming one of the more sought after options available… Our combination of comfortable and contemporary apartments and a secure and relaxing environment is what makes us a top choice amongst university students."

A spokesperson from Safe Removals, a home removals service in London, have also made comment on the changes: "With increasing stories of break-ins and absentee landlords for second and third year students in impoverished residents it is unsurprising that this year's students are becoming more picky about their choices.

"Where you live has a great impact on the way you study, as it needs to be a safe, relaxing environment for students to be able to study effectively in. As a removals company we are aware of the importance a home can have to a person, even if this home is temporary. Our friendly staff take pride in their ability to safely and efficiently help people to move properties, and take the stress out of moving day for people."
