Unlike most other student based cities London is the exception in the fact that students are not locked into their contracts early. I study at the University of Southampton. Southampton being the student-dominated city it is; the search for a property for the next academic year starts in November and most of the good properties go by February. This forces students, and Fresher’s especially, to seek a property and housemates right as the start of the academic year, whilst Fresher’s are establishing who their friends are.
