Whether you have moved into halls with a bunch of strangers or you are house sharing with your pals. There will inevitably be things you do that annoy one another.
It can be hard to approach your new co-habitants and let them know exactly how you feel without causing some kind of tension.
Even when you broach the subject, will they actually listen?
Here are the top 10 most annoying habits…
1. Leaving dirty pots around – If you use it, wash it.
2. Leaving the lights/electrical appliances on when not in use – This will be especially annoying to those that share the bill payments instead of having all-inclusive accommodation.
3. Not changing the bins when full – You can guarantee there will be one person that always feels like they empty the bin. Why not make it easier and designate jobs to each housemate?
4. Not changing the toilet roll – If you have used that very last square just pop a new one on. It takes 10 seconds.
5. Not removing hair from the plugholes – Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, wants to remove the soggy hair from another human from the plugholes. Just make it part of your showering/washing routine.
6. Mouldy food in the fridge – Just Bleurgh!
7. Leaving the toilet seat up after use – If it’s a house full of boys, we imagine this may not be a big issue. If you are living with girls though, be polite boys.
8. Leaving the window open when the heating is on – If you are hot, turn down the heating. The heating situation may be a cause for concern for everyone involved. One person will be cold while the other is hot.
Some compromises will need to be made here.
9. Taking excessively long showers – There will most likely only be one shower for you and your housemates to share. Do be thoughtful of that.
You can’t be banging out some tunes doing bathroom karaoke when there are 4 others waiting to use the bathroom.
10. Moving their boyfriend or girlfriend in and them not contributing to bills – Fair enough, they will be sharing a room BUT they will be using the utilities so should pay for them too.
Find student accommodation
Where do you want to go?
Highly recommend Mezzino Student living, it’s furnished to a high standard and is in the heart of the student area. Has very helpful staff and it’s well run in the office.
Searched for loads of student accommodation before I found this gem amongst the rest. Really nice sizeable apartments in a great student busy location. Would highly recommend Mezzino.
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.
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.
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.
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.
