Student Accommodation on a budget during the holidays

Student Accommodation on a budget during the holidays

City centre accommodation tends to be pretty expensive, but it doesn’t need to be…you just need to know where to look! University Rooms offers university residences when students go home for the holidays! A unique accommodation option, perfect for students on a budget!

With rooms available in over 75 cities worldwide, you’ll be sure to find somewhere to stay on your travels. Depending on the type of trip you are planning, here are just a few of the options available:

Historic Settings

Here is a chance to stay in truly historic accommodation! Oxford is home to 39 colleges, and it is a vibrant student city with a huge choice in restaurants, bars and clubs, as well as having a rich cultural heritage.  Rooms can be booked in a number of Oxford residences, some of which are listed buildings such as these around the Quads at Keble College.

European Breaks

Planning a break in Europe this summer? You can keep costs down by staying in a hostel or university residence. Hotels in the centre of cities such as Paris or Barcelona can often run to hundreds of pounds, yet rooms in university residences can often be booked from between €20-€40. Consider Italy for a break combining great food, history, art and even beaches. You could stay in this former convent in Genoa (Italy’s sixth largest city) – from just €33!


If you are thinking of a trip to a festival this year, why not consider The Edinburgh Fringe? It is the world’s largest arts festival and takes place every August. Accommodation tends to book up pretty quickly, but you can still find great value accommodation in Edinburgh in these student residences, which are significantly cheaper than some of the hotels in the city.
