Congratulations! You have just made the most important decision of your university career— Which university you will be studying at next year! Now it is time to make the second most important decision of your university career, which is choosing your student accommodation.
Choosing where you will live while you are studying at university can come as a bit of a difficult decision for most, and here is why: You want to live somewhere safe, in a great location, and with great amenities, and there are countless great options to choose from when it comes to these three factors. Your university experience truly starts with where you choose to live during your studies, and it is important that you choose somewhere that offers all the above.
But don’t you also want your accommodation to be somewhere that is “more than just a room?” Well, you are in luck, because this is Abodus Student Living’s tagline, and for a great reason. Read on below to learn more about why choosing Abodus as your home away from home will be one of the best decisions you make when it comes to your university career.
- Monthly events. Here at Abodus, there is always something fun to do! Each month, we take special care to create a full calendar of fun events that will ensure you never have a reason to be bored. Whether you are interested in fitness, professional development, entertainment or arts and crafts, there is sure to be something for every one of our residents to enjoy! Take a look at our Instagram page for a little taster of what we get up to each month.
- Bespoke student discount programme. By now, you have probably seen many student discount programmes floating around, but Abodus has a student discount programme that cannot be found anywhere else. This is because Abodus’ Very Important Partners (VIP) Programme was created and established by Abodus, meaning the brands we work with were carefully chosen with our residents in mind, and the discounts you receive will likely not be offered through any other student discount programme on the market.

- Regular giveaways. We try not to brag too much, but we host some pretty epic giveaways on our Instagram page! Only Abodus residents can enter and win these giveaways, meaning your chances of winning are much higher than that of those who open their giveaways to the public.
