This category features everything you need to know about your student accommodation. Whether it’s the easiest way to get around from your area, how to personalise your student room or how to deal with frustrating flatmates, we’ve got it covered.

That’s why we provide advice and tips and tricks so you can enjoy student life in the UK’s capital city and make your room and living situation as comfortable as possible.

At The Journal, we’ve been where you are and know all the trial and tribulations of student life, especially when you’re thrown into accommodation with complete strangers. To add to our own advice, we regularly reach out to experts, from interior designers or psychologists, to give further thoughts on how make the most of accommodation for students.

Browse through all our articles to find solutions and advice. The topics covered include how to get around Westminster, how to declutter your student accommodation and how to split the house bills without confrontation.
