What is the difference between a shared flat and a studio?

So, you’re getting ready to start university and now it’s time to find accommodation, the only thing left to think about is where to live. And now you’re stuck on one of the ultimate questions, do I get a shared flat or a studio?


We’re going to answer your question with some clarity so you know the difference between them both and can make the best decision for your student accommodation.


Shared Flats-


Sometimes called cluster flats or group flats, where you share a communal space with other students so at the end of a long day you can wind down together in the lounge or kitchen.

All the bedrooms have En-suite bathrooms for you to still have privacy without the worries of a shared bathroom.


Shared flats are the ideal place to be if you want to enjoy the student lifestyle with friends, either old or new! One of the best features is the tenancy agreement is just yours, so unlike a shared house via a letting agent, you don’t have to worry if any flatmates don’t pay their rent or drop out.


If you have specific requirements for your flatmates, such as whether they study a similar course or want a single-sex flat just let us know and we will work to make sure to arrange it.

Our studios are built for you to enjoy your own space and privacy, with your very own kitchen for you to enjoy throughout your time studying.


These flats include a double bed, kitchen, ensuite bathroom and desk space so you have everything you could ever need whilst enjoying the student lifestyle.


Many people worry that living in a studio means you can’t enjoy social events in the same way, but don’t worry about that with us!

We love hosting social events for all our residents so you can still stay in the loop and make friends in the building.
