Group bookings for student accommodation

University is an exciting time, full of new adventures and opportunities. One of the most significant decisions you’ll make is where to live, and if you’re like many students, you might be wondering: “Can I book private halls with friends?” The answer is a resounding yes! Choosing to live with your mates can make the transition to university life even better, and with the right accommodation, the process can be smooth and stress-free.

Imagine living with your best friends, sharing late-night study sessions, cooking together, and creating memories that will last a lifetime. That’s the beauty of group bookings for student accommodation. With Hello Student, you can easily coordinate with your mates to reserve shared student accommodation that meets your needs and preferences.

Whether you’d like to share a 2 bed apartment with your best friend or have a full group of friends living in a 3-4 bed shared apartment or townhouse we’ve got you covered. And say you want to live with a partner, we also offer dual occupancy for some of our room types (this includes studio apartments and duplexes). 

Looking to live in a studio but want a familiar face as a neighbour? You can also request to live on the same floor as each other whilst having your own more private living space.

Top tips for booking student accommodation with friends

Booking student accommodation with friends is a straightforward process with Hello Student. You can browse our website to find the perfect accommodation that suits your group’s needs and preferences. Once you’ve identified a suitable location, you can either book online, call or email our friendly team, or even pop into our office to have an in person viewing.

Coordinating your group booking

Effective communication is key when booking student accommodation with friends. Discuss your preferences, budget, and any specific requirements you might have. Hello Student even allows you to indicate your room preferences during the booking process, ensuring we do our best to accommodate your requests, such as living with your friends. Or you can indicate that you would like a ‘double room with a shared bathroom’, for example.

Group booking considerations

When booking student accommodation as a group, there are a few important considerations to keep in mind. Firstly, ensure that all members of your group are full-time students studying in the UK, as this is often a requirement for shared uni accommodation. Secondly, decide whether you want to pay the rent in full at the beginning of the year or in instalments. If you choose the latter option, you’ll need to provide a guarantor for each person in the group.

Each option is bespoke to the individual student. To make a group booking just email the team and let them know the names of the people you would like to live with and we will do the rest! Our team will match up the names and will then confirm room numbers etc.

Finalising your group booking

Once you’ve completed the booking process, Hello Student will send you an offer of accommodation. You’ll then need to complete further details, create your resident account, verify your identity, and sign your tenancy agreement. Remember, these steps must be completed within five days, so make sure you have your photo ID handy. And don’t worry; Hello Student won’t ask for any upfront costs or deposits, making the process even more hassle-free. What’s more, we even throw in free contents’ insurance.

Booking private halls of residence with friends is an excellent way to make your university experience even more memorable. With Hello Student’s warm and friendly approach, you can rest assured that your university accommodation group booking will be a breeze, allowing you to focus on making the most of your time together. So, gather your mates, discuss your preferences, and let Hello Student take care of the rest!
