Worcester is an amazing city with glorious scenery all around. Everything you need from the beautiful cathedral to a vibrant city centre is within a five-minute walk. The River Severn flanks the western side of the city centre, which is overlooked by Worcester Cathedral. On a clear day it is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of the town and watch the world go by.
Moving to Worcester from South Wales and living away from home for the first time I was a little nervous about being in a new city on my own. During my first year I lived on campus and being a mature student, I felt secluded and could not get involved with any of my other flatmates’ activities. I travelled back home almost every weekend as I was alone and had yet to fully immerse myself into Worcester life. But right in the heart of Worcester there is student accommodation that made living here that little bit easier. This year I am living at Farrier House Student Accommodation and living here has made being away from home a whole lot easier. Farrier House offers state of the art facilities and a real community where lifelong friendships can be created and flourish. With friendly staff that make moving in effortless to friendly flatmates that make your day a little bit better with the odd “hello” and “how are you?”. The positive and happy faces of both staff and flatmates is a warming notion when you’ve had a tough day at University.
Since moving to Worcester this year, I have taken advantage of the excellent location of the accommodation and its amenities. Throwing myself into my studies and sport, I am able to keep up a healthy balance of work and play. Worcester University boasts a plethora of facilities to enable this.
