Student Accommodation in Bedford

Written by Sam | February 1, 2021

Bedford is an area that has grown in recent years. It only has one university and that is the University of Bedfordshire, it has roughly around 10,000 students across all 6 of it’s campuses which is a good size.

The University of Bedfordshire is known by its current name since the University of Luton and De Montfort University’s Bedford campus merged in 2006.

With 6 campuses spread out over various locations, makes student accommodation relatively difficult, we will focus on the campus in Bedford and cover Luton in another article!

Private Student Accommodation in Bedford

In this section we look at the purpose built student accommodation (PBSA). These are built especially for students to live in and come with a lot of added extras, however, their price is usually more expensive than your traditional student housing.

Some of extras you can expect to find in student accommodation is:

  • En-suites in flats
  • Accommodation manager
  • Bills included
  • Bikes to use
  • Free breakfasts
  • Cinema, Study and games rooms
  • More security than a house

In Bedford, because the university is based outside the city centre, there isn’t a lot of student accommodation which means that you don’t have a lot of choice.

Some student accommodation providers in Bedford are:

There is university owned student accommodation in Bedford and because there is only one campus here, it means it doesn’t have a lot of students here.

The accommodation is within walking distance to the university and the centre of town.

  • Check the room for quality fixtures, fittings and spaces
  • Look at their communal areas to make sure they are functional
  • Check the social calendar
  • Check the inventory
  • Read the tenancy and the cancellation policy

Student Housing in Bedford

In Bedford you don’t have as much choice as other places, however, there is still enough for students who want to live in a house rather than student accommodation.

A provider in Bedford that has good student housing is:

Most students look to live as close to the campus as possible, this is to save the commute and because the rent is reasonable.

However, I believe most students choose to stay in student accommodation rather than search for student housing judging by what I can find!

If you are looking for student housing and want to make sure that you find a good quality student letting agent or landlord, here are my quick tips:

  • Always view the property in person
  • Look at the quality of the furnishings
  • Read the tenancy agreement
  • View a property with more than one agent
