Blog

At Student Cribs, we believe that students should enjoy a better standard of living and get the most of their time at university, and the Student Cribs blog aims to help students do just that.

With rich content from past and present university students, our writers have lived the UK university experience in all the cities where you can find our Cribs, and our content reflects this understanding of the British student lifestyle.

Ranging from tips about how to select the perfect student house in a particular UK city, detailed city guides from the perspective of students who have spent the time discovering the real hidden gems, to more general university life, the Student Cribs blog has it all.
