The Benefits Of Quiet Living Accommodation

Zoe Kramer March 22, 2023

If you’re looking to move into uni halls, you might be confused by the options available to you. It can be difficult to decide between selecting quiet accommodation and regular accommodation. Perhaps you’re not keen on the idea of flatmates keeping you awake at 4am, but you don’t want to miss out on socializing, either. It’s true that quiet living accommodation offers a decidedly different experience of uni. And while some may prefer the traditional “university experience” of student halls, quiet living can also offer a great experience for students. Here are some of the benefits of quiet living accommodation.

You Can Study In Your Room

It can be hard to focus with lots of hubbub and noise around you. If you want to get some work done and others in your hall are being rowdy, the only option might be to relocate to a library. However, in quiet accommodation there is no need for this. You can simply work from your room whenever you want in peace. So if you’re a studious type, this might prove immensely beneficial for you. You can get your work done on your time without having to worry about breaking focus.

You Can Get Uninterrupted Sleep

Sleep is important for your mood, health, and general well-being. Many student accommodations are known for having rowdy groups making noise at all hours of the night. So, if you’re looking to have a place where you can rest through the night without having to worry about noise, quiet accommodation can be the perfect choice. This is particularly helpful if you have classes early in the morning, or a part-time job you have to wake up early for.

You Can Meet Likeminded People

Another one of the benefits of quiet living accommodation is the people you get to meet. If you’re inclined towards a quieter lifestyle, chances are you’ll get along with people who are similar. A quiet living accommodation is a great way to meet such people. While this type of accommodation can make it a bit more difficult to get to know people than a regular accommodation, that doesn’t mean you’ll be isolated or lonely. People who live in these accommodations are still sociable, and normally your residence life team will organise events to break the ice.

You Can Try A Variety Of Different Social Events

Just because you’re living in quiet accommodation doesn’t mean you can’t have fun. There is still plenty of opportunity to go out clubbing or to parties if you like. The main difference is that you have a quiet place to return to whenever you want. Quiet accommodations also tend to offer an array of activities that don’t involve alcohol, such as board game and film nights.
