Beau's guide to finding student accommodation in Stoke after clearing

Updated: Nov 21, 2023

A-level results day can be a nerve-wracking time for students, but it's also an exciting time to start thinking about your future. If you're worrying about results day, don't worry - you're not alone. In fact, around 60,000 students go through clearing each year to find a place at university. This represents a whopping 10% of all students who started university in 2022!

Of those students, 33% ended up going to a university they didn't mean to go to. This means that 20,000 students had to change their plans for university after receiving their A-level results. But never fear, there's plenty of options so you can always find your home-from-home.

University halls of residence

University halls of residence are a great option for students who are looking for a convenient and affordable place to live. They are typically located close to campus, so students can easily get to their classes.

However, university halls of residence are typically very expensive and can fill up quickly, especially in popular universities like Staffordshire University. If you're applying through clearing, it's important to start your search early to avoid disappointment.

Private housing

If university halls of residence are full, private housing may be a good option for you. In fact, 20% of students who used clearing in 2022 had to find private accommodation. This means that 12,000 students had to find a place to live outside of university halls of residence.

There are a number of different types of private housing available in Stoke, including houses, flats, and studios. Private housing can be much cheaper than university halls of residence, and also offers much more privacy and space.

In fact, private student housing in Stoke is on average £200 per month cheaper than Staffordshire University halls of residence. This means that you could save £2400 per year by choosing private housing.
