Student House Hunting for Dummies
If you haven’t already been bombarded with leaflets, free lollipops and invitations to join absurd promotional events, you are obviously lucky enough to live in a University with non-aggressive letting agencies nearby. For those of us who do, the mad rush to find a student house to live in for the next academic year could hardly have gone unnoticed. Hunting for housemates, signing contracts, paying deposits… the whole thing is all a bit bewildering.
Halloween on a budget
It’s no surprise that you have already started collecting a vast amount of costumes for those themed uni nights out with your friends. Unfortunately even with our loans or part-time jobs at uni, costumes can sometimes be on the pricey side but they really don’t have to be if you shop around.

Now many of us are back in the safety of our parental homes and away from the buzz of uni life, we may come to realise how much our habits and behaviour have changed since we left. Either that or your parents point them out with slight concern…
