University accommodation is the same all over the world – whichever university you go to you’ll find that there are good and bad options.
A lot will depend upon your budget – for a student paying rent for the first time it can come as something of a shock to realize that occasionally their money will not buy them what they want.
There are some things that you can do though that can make your accommodation better without the need to spend a lot of money. Most student apartments or studios may have a couch or chairs in there and the easiest way to keep them clean is to simply opt for Bemz covers. These can be taken off and washed as needed and the Bemz covers are great value as well as easy to care for. They can be ordered online, so you don’t even need to be near an Ikea store.
Another improvement for your university accommodation is the addition of rugs. These will cover any old flooring that you have and options such as rag rugs are really inexpensive, as well as fully washable. These can be dotted about the place to brighten it up and give it more of a homely feel. If you match your rug to your Bemz cover, it can really give a cohesive feel to the room.
