If you’re not yet there, you will be in the coming weeks. You’ve had an epic summer break and are probably not looking forward to the thought of going back to studying but fear not. There are plenty of things you can look forward to…
Yep, complete and utter freedom. Nobody walking into your bedroom unannounced. Imagine leaving the house without being asked ‘who are you going out with?’ and ‘what time will you be back?’ I know, we’ve all been there. The novelty might swiftly wear off though.
It may take a while to put your own stamp on it but believe us, it will be so worth it. Make it as cosy as you can before the cold winter months come. You can read this post for a few room ideas. You can’t usually decorate rooms with paint but you can certainly add your own personal touches.
It’s without a doubt that you will meet some quirky characters. You will also meet some of your BFF’s around this time. There will be people you love and people you don’t.
We think this is the most anticipated week in a young adults student life. Embrace it and all the hangovers that will come along with it.
Go along to all you can handle. There will be fancy dress and pub golf galore.
You will have most likely turned up to uni with a full food shop. Cooking for your new flatmates can be really exciting, especially if you decide to take it in turns. Beans on toast count too by the way.
Go along to the Freshers fair and expect to leave with a bag full of samples, goodies, and discounts from local businesses. Be warned though, you may end up with 30 biros.

I moved to Mayfair Court 3 years ago and we love it here. My apartment is spacious and enlightened by large windows facing Wilmslow road. Commons, including a flourishing inner garden are well kept. Staff are friendly and always there to help, and the community is diverse. Location is very convenient. There’s a bus stop at the foot of the building, a supermarket across the street, Bodey Medical Centre behind the supermarket, and plenty of restaurants and pubs around. I'm happy to call this place our home while in Manchester.
Living at The Junxion has been a very homely experience for me, as from moving in on my first year of university I was a little nervous about living on my own so far away from my home in Liverpool; but that all change once I moved into my new room, as the buildings interior design gives off such a relaxing vibe that will allow you to study in peace. Although the staff in the building where so very comforting to speak to and will offer guidance on pretty much anything, as they are always there to help. Other than that I would highly recommend The Junxion to anyone as I am currently a second year living with my friend at The Junxion and I couldn’t feel more at home.
Millstone is a brilliant place to live, Ive just book for my 3rd year. The staff are kind and caring. I have love living at Millstone as it has given me independence and a bigger family.
For a very spacious space with great amenities, the price is very mucb affordable. Good views and great support staff to help out at anytime of the day.
I loved it there !
Brickworks is a great home for whoever comes to live in Dublin for a while.
The friendliness of the staff along with the welcoming environment make for a great place to live. When I first entered the room, it felt like a hotel room : comfortable, modern and very liveable.
The neighborhood is as calm as it gets and you get to the most animated streets in 15mn.
The sunset view on the rooftop is the cherry on the cake.
I have been living in Brickworks about 7 months. Brickworks is a great place to live in. The location is really convenient (close to city center, good public transportation, near the supermarket and so on...). The buildings are pretty new (well maintained and very clean) it also offers study rooms, cinema room, gym, roof top party room and terrace. There are a lot of common areas for entertainment (PlayStation, Pool, table tennis...). Additionally, free coffee and tea services are amazing!
Brickworks team all of them are AWESOME. They are always up for helping... I highly recommend the Brickworks for people who need a place to call home... Thanks for everything.
