Luxury accommodation often have a range of in-building facilities, such as gyms, pools, a cinema room and games rooms, and even a work/study area. This can be incredibly practical and convenient if you have a busy working life and want everything you need for leisure, under one roof. This might also be an economical option if you find yourself paying for gym or swimming pool memberships and social spaces separately.

You may also find that your neighbours will share similar priorities and may be in a similar position in their career. This can be helpful in building a network of friends if you have moved to a new city. Make the most of your building’s communal area and games room to build social connections.

Features of your apartment, such as, a balcony, beautiful city views, en-suite bathrooms, additional storage and more room, may convince you to choose luxury accommodation. If location is important to you, luxury apartments are often found in the heart of the city, giving you easy access to everything you need, such as your workplace, bars, restaurants, and national transport links. If anything, this may save you the money and hassle of travelling long distances between your home and the city centre.

Luxury vs other accommodation options

Being able to afford luxury accommodation is a key requirement for choosing this accommodation option. However, if comfortable, stylish living is not a priority in your budget, there are alternative choices available to you as a non-student.

Studio flat

You might wish to think about a studio apartment. These usually do not offer a lot of room compared to luxury accommodation however, the compromise in size may mean that amazing in-building amenities are still available, or you may have more modern student accommodation options available to rent.

Flat shares

Flat shares or house shares can also be a good option if you wish to spread the cost of luxury living by having a large, shared kitchen and living area while also having private, usually en-suite rooms. This can also help you to meet new people or give you the option to live with current friends. It can be an easy way to live in luxury and/or centrally, as all-inclusive rent tends to be lower in shared accommodation. Read more about the benefits of share flats here.

Student flats

Luxury, private accommodation is a huge step up from student housing or university halls. The shared accommodation is usually located near campus buildings, however, as a non-student, this may not be as central as required. Mansion Student offers luxury accommodation at the heart of the city where you can be located near all the amenities you need.

Would you get the most out of a games room/social space to connect with other residents or an outdoors space to relax? Having a safe, underground parking option might be the most important feature for you. Does your luxury accommodation have room for guests, or do you want to share your home to meet new people? This could impact you decision on living in private or shared luxury accommodation.
