Moving away from home for the first time can be incredibly exciting. At last, you can enjoy a bit of freedom to do things your way and live how you want to live. Therefore, finding the best student homes is critical. It’s one of the biggest draws of going away to university and can mark a thrilling new chapter in your life as you finally fly the nest and start life on your own.
Unfortunately for many new students, as Joni Mitchell famously said, ‘you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone’. Having to pay for, look after and maintain your own home is a lot harder than you might think, especially if your parents have done all the hard work for you up until now.
That’s why choosing the right accommodation in Lancaster is so important. Get it wrong and you could be in for a world of hate, with mounting bills, endless maintenance issues and no one to fix anything when it goes wrong. Get it right, with Lancaster Student Lettings, and it will all be taken care of for you, almost as easily as living at home.

Transparent, inclusive contracts
The first thing you need is a contract that you understand, and which makes everything clear and above board. Our contracts are written specifically for each property, not downloaded from some random legal website. They set out your obligations and responsibilities clearly, so everyone knows the score from the start.
Each home comes with a complete inventory and an outline of our inspection policy, so you know exactly what you’re getting and what we expect of you. It also details exactly how to get in touch if you have any problems or need any help or support with your new home. As a neutral service, between you and your landlord, we can usually work things out quickly and easily and you’ll find our team friendly and ready to help in any way they can.
We know how quickly bills can get out of hand for students who have never had to pay for these things before, so we make sure all our rents are inclusive of gas, electricity and water bills. Many properties also have broadband internet included too. One termly payment covers everything, so you can relax knowing your bills are paid and your home is secure, even if you run short of cash at the end of term.
Your rent also covers our 24/7 backup service, with round the clock response for emergency repairs and an in-house team on hand to deal with any incident or accident that needs attention. Using our own people means we can control the quality and still keep the cost of repairs down, which you’ll really appreciate if the incident is your fault.
Instead of trying to call your landlord at work, or disturbing them at home in the evening, with Lancaster Student Lettings, everything can be done instantly online. You can check your contract, report faults, breakdowns and accidental damage, and even give notice if you want to end your tenancy, all at the click of a mouse. For emergencies that require an immediate response, you can call our hotline 24hours a day for prompt attention and a fast fix.
Why settle for less?
Private accommodation for students has an unfortunate reputation for being expensive and awkward, with very poor service. But it doesn’t have to be like that. To find out more about hassle-free student homes, visit our website or call us on 01524 587327.
