Student City Guides

University isn’t all study. It’s a chance to gain your independence, to build relationships with like-minded peers, and begin to find your place in the world. It’s also great for branching out, trying new things and soaking up the sights, community and culture of a whole new city – what could be more exciting than that?

At aparto, we’re committed to helping students get more from their university experience. From our community-led student homes to our friendly, attentive service – everything we do is designed to help you achieve your potential, and have a little fun along the way.

Wherever you choose to study ­– be it Brighton, London, Reading, Cambridge, Dublin or Aberdeen – our homes offer a welcoming space from which to enjoy an enriching experience in these exciting and vibrant cities.

Thanks to our growing community of student homes in the UK and Ireland, we’ve really got to know what young people want from their experience at university. Our close ties with current and former aparto residents means that we’re able to offer practical advice and guidance to today’s students, helping them get the most from their time at university.

Taking what we’ve learned from our community of aparto students, we’ve created a series of comprehensive guides which offer all kinds of useful information for students starting life in a new city. From where to shop to the best budget eats, and even directions for finding your way back to the aparto building (useful after a late-night freshers’ party) – our city guides are perfect for new students heading to the bright lights of the big city for the first time.

Whether you’re a student counting the days until university or an anxious parent researching where your child will be living, our student city guides offer helpful tips for a smooth start to life away from home. Use the links above to access the guide you’re looking for.
