If you search and find a property for you and your roommate, get in touch with us and we will find out whether it is available for dual occupancy.
When is dual occupancy a good option?
Whether you’re an undergraduate or postgraduate, dual occupancy can be a great option if:
- You and your partner study at the same university or different universities and want to live together
- You want to share a room to save money on rent and utilities
Dual occupancy – what to expect
- Dual occupancy properties are typically one or two-bedroom properties as larger properties don’t tend to allow two people to stay in the same room due to local authority licensing schemes.
- Most dual accommodation bedrooms are spacious enough to allow two people to live comfortably. Sharing the same room with a partner doesn’t have to be a trade-off for comfort!
- Walton Robinson can help you find a property that was specifically designed for shared living. This means that you could get a spacious bathroom and kitchen, large wardrobe, and room layouts that give you privacy.
- Keep in mind that landlords may charge higher rent or a higher deposit for student accommodation for couples in Newcastle, so let us know your budget and we will find something that meets your requirements.
- Dual occupancy properties sometimes come with all bills included in the rent price, so that you can divide them easily with your roommate.
Living with a friend or partner can help you transition to student life more easily and better manage your finances. Our lettings agents will help you find a property that you both like, located in the most convenient area in Newcastle, with transport links to the Uni campus and all the awesome student hotspots here!
