Student Accommodation in High Wycombe

Written by Sam | March 8, 2021

High Wycombe plays host to one university and that is Buckinghamshire New University. With just over 5,000 students it is a small university in comparison with others however, it has been steadily growing.

The university has four campuses located in the county of Buckinghamshire, just outside of London. These include Aylesbury Vale, High Wycombe (the university’s main campus), Missenden Abbey, and Uxbridge.

The university sits just north west of London and just outside of the Chiltern Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Private Student Accommodation in High Wycombe

In this section, I like to look at what student accommodation there is in High Wycombe that isn’t owned or managed by the university.

This type of student accommodation can come with a lot of added extras which can really have a positive impact on a students life, some of those are:

  • Accommodation manager
  • Bills included
  • En-suites in flats
  • Social events
  • Gym, cinema, study an games rooms
  • Free breakfasts
  • Free coffee
  • Bikes to use

There are more and not all accommodations will offer everything on the list, it is best to check what they offer and many offer incentives when booking.

In High Wycombe, there isn’t a massive amount of private student accommodation and where there is, they are based in a good location, close to the town centre and within walking distance of the university.

It has good transport links and this makes it easy when you want to get in to London or travel home for a period of time!

The reason why there won’t be a lot of private student accommodation in High Wycombe is because of the student population, a lot may stay in university managed accommodation or transition to student housing.
