Sleep will be your much needed best friend at university.
Late nights of partying and studying will take its toll on your sleeping pattern and may even completely throw it up in the air.
Sleeping in until mid-afternoon because you went out doesn’t count as quality sleep either.
Try and have a bedtime routine and have at least half an hour of chill time away from screens as this will help you separate your daily activities and sleep. Also, try and keep your wake up and sleep times on a regular schedule. Don’t go over the 2-hour mark for a lie in. We know, this may be particularly hard if you’ve had a late night or have nothing, in particular, to get up for.
Are you a power nap lover?
Don’t overdo them. If you feel like you absolutely need to nap, set an alarm. Don’t oversleep and end up not being able to sleep in the evening, starting off a vicious cycle.
Eating and drinking just before you lie down can cause indigestion, heartburn or just make you feel generally uncomfortable making it difficult to sleep well, if at all.
Especially avoid caffeine before bed. Caffeine is a stimulant, keeping you alert and awake. Even if you think caffeine doesn’t affect you, it WILL hinder your sleep.
Aim to stop drinking anything caffeinated 3-5 hours before planned sleep.
I know it may be difficult while living in halls/with other people but try not to do everything from your bed. Keep it strictly for sleep and sex only and maybe a spot of reading.
Study at your desk and watch TV in the communal rooms. Believe me, it WILL make a difference.
Find student accommodation
Where do you want to go?
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
