My friend and I wanted to find a flat we could share while away at university. We were not expecting the costs to be so high, so we knew that we were going to have to find a couple of people who would share the cost with us. When she told me about some Edinburgh University flats and gave me the website to look at, I knew that we were going to end up living there, at least while we were going to school. All of the details sounded great, and the prices were definitely affordable this way too.
The kitchen has everything we will need. It has a cooker, a microwave, the refrigerator, and even a washer and dryer. There is also a dining table and all of the dishes that we would need, even if we would have company over. Going into the other common areas, there is just plenty of space and all of the furniture is already provided. There is even a chair by the telephone for when we have to make those calls that our parents insist upon! It is also very safe as it has emergency lighting, fire exits, extinguishers should there be a fire, and so much more.
What I liked most though are the private rooms. Since my friend and I were the first to apply at one of the flats, we had our choice of the four bedrooms. I knew she would want the one that had the most sun coming in, which was fine with me. The room I chose is a bit bigger, and I like the view out my window. We ended up meeting our new flat mates just a couple of weeks after we moved in, and the four of us are already the best of friends!
