With flat screen TVs, free high speed Wi-Fi and an on-site gym, it would be easy to mistake these student rooms in Luton for a modern residential apartment block.
The regeneration of the UK’s student accommodation market has meant that students now have more say in where they live. The days of dingy bedsits and terraced houses split into a cramped living quarters have gone. They have been replaced with a new era of spacious, modern rooms in buildings which have been designed for shared living.
Students have been given the choice of staying in halls-of-residence-style accommodation and they love it!
The best student rooms in Luton
Operational since 2014, Park House in Luton is an example of this new style of student living.
The building which features a manned reception, 24/7 CCTV, a gym, communal indoor and outdoor space, a cinema and large living quarters.
“The first time I moved in I was impressed. A games room, gym, the cinema, theatre, they have everything you could ever want,” one student explains.
“If I’m honest, I love it because it’s so much different to what I had last year in halls. Like the rooms are bigger, I’ve got my own kitchen, my own bathroom, I don’t have to share with anyone,” another student gushes.
