Students, trainees and apprentices will all be starting academic and vocational courses in the autumn and many will be looking for rooms to let in Kettering. The town has a number of higher and further education establishments, including Tresham College, which has more than 7,000 students and also has a campus in Corby.
Northamptonshire letting agents Ashan Property can offer a wide range of rooms to rent for students in Kettering and Corby and can help prospective tenants find the right sort of room. Here we look at how students can benefit from renting a room.
Benefits for Students
Renting a room can give you are greater sense of responsibility and independence, particularly if it is your first time away from the family home. It will mean sorting out all the household tasks, like washing and cleaning, and how to budget and look after your finances. However, it can still be a gentle introduction to the adult world, as letting agencies like Ashan Property have years of experience in sorting out all the paperwork involved and dealing with any issues.
It can also help teach you other new life skills, such as learning to cook for yourself, which means you can decide when and what you eat, rather than having to fit in with someone else’s timetable and culinary choices.
Renting a room can also be more convenient for you; the great thing is the choice is yours. You can often opt for somewhere close to your college, university or training centre, which could help save you money on bus fares. If you have a particular hobby or interest, such as a sporting activity, then you could look for somewhere close to a club or leisure centre.
You could equally opt to rent a room in a house which is a bit further away from the hustle and bustle of university life; this will be particularly useful if your course involves a lot of intensive studying and you need to avoid any unnecessary distractions, or if you are a mature student who is older than most of the other people on your course.
If you would like a sense of independence but don’t want to feel too isolated, then you and your friends could rent separate rooms in the same house. Splitting the cost in this way will have financial benefits too. If you can’t find rooms in the same property, letting agents like Ashan will often be able to find similar ones nearby.
