Digstudent.co.uk offer some of the best student accommodation across the UK. Here are just some of the reasons why the DIGS student experience stands out when it comes to both student accommodation and the student experience.
Firstly, the facilities are state of the art across all of the different halls. Most of the halls have their own gyms, which is included in your monthly rent, so there is no need to buy a gym membership. The DIGS accommodation in Huddersfield has its own on-site bar and restaurant, which even comes with its own beer garden. The rooms themselves come in a variety of packages, including options for couples. All rooms come with their own en-suite bathroom and will come with a standard, dining or social kitchen depending on your preference. And each property comes with its own common room, perfect for social activities.
Social events are held throughout the year at the properties too. For example, each property will have its own welcome party giving new students the chance to mingle and meet their new housemates. Study groups are also organised so there are chances for you to work with people on your course, or at least similar courses together in the common room. And throughout the year DIGS will also organise pizza nights for everyone in the property.
Student welfare is of course a top priority. Therefore, there are regular mental health, careers and health workshops throughout the academic calendar, and are free for students to attend. There is also particular focus on the transition placed upon moving from home for the first time, with extra support given during this time. And of course, all properties have CCTV so students can feel safe throughout their stay.
DIGS are committed to being green and the properties replicate this feeling. Each property is well equipped with recycling facilities, as well as tips on how your experience can be a green one. Each property has its own bike storage, making cycling to university that little bit easier. The Storthes Hall Park accommodation in Huddersfield even has its own water borehole system.
Finally, alongside the aforementioned extra support when you first arrive to any of the properties, all students after they have booked a room, will be invited to a private Facebook group where they can make contact with their new housemates and get to know them, making the first time meeting in person a little less daunting.
