Your time at university is about more than just studying. Of course you’ll end up cramming all-nighters in at the library, there’s no escaping that, but your time as a student is precious. Your student years are supposed to be the best years of your life and you’ll remember them forever. So don’t mess them up! Prioritise your health and wellbeing, and most of all, make sure you have fun!

At YPP our focus is to provide accommodation that does just that, encouraging fun, supporting health and wellbeing, and maximising your student experience. Choose one of our inclusive apartments next year and here’s how they will help you get the most out of your time at uni…

Location

We’re 99% sure there’s evidence out there somewhere that proves living close to campus will make life easier. We just haven’t looked for it. Forget using the rain as an excuse, by living close to university you can roll out of bed 10-minutes before your lecture and still have time to grab a coffee on route. In fact, we can think of at least 3000 better things you could be doing instead of walking to and from your lessons, whether it’s studying, exercising or focusing on that all-important self-care. Picking an apartment close to your university should be a priority so that you’re minimising your study time and maximising your ‘you time’. All of our apartments have been carefully located so that they're close to a University campus!

Health and Wellbeing

Getting the right balance of sleep, exercise, food, studying and socialising is something we all need. Get this wrong and not only is your health compromised but your grades are too. At YPP we take this seriously, which is why all of our apartments come with comfy double beds for a good night’s sleep. We also give out fresh fruit, provide positive messages and encourage exercise by giving out free PureGym memberships. Some of our developments even have on-site gyms. If health and wellbeing is something you need a little help with check out our new blog ‘Easy every day habits to focus on that will help improve health and well-being’ which can be found in the news section of our website www.ypp.co.uk/blog.

Community

Moving away from home can come with a number of emotions. Whether you feel excited, nervous, anxious or home-sick, we want to reduce your worries as much as we can. We pride ourselves on our diverse range of tenants, encouraging students from all over the world to come and live with us. This year we have a record number of 78 different nationalities amongst our residents, some of which have travelled thousands of miles to get here.

This is why, right from the get go, we encourage new tenants to get involved with social activities, starting with a welcome party which have previously included a live DJ, caricature, food, drinks and games tournaments. Throughout the year we bring people together celebrating holidays and events from a range of religions. Whether it’s Chinese New Year, Eid or Christmas we love celebrating everyone’s cultures and backgrounds. We even speak 6 different languages amongst our staff, meaning we can try and make everyone feel at home as much as possible. Our Facebook groups also encourage tenants to meet each other and exchange conversation. Our communal spaces, games areas, study pods and resident's lounges are a perfect way to do this!
