Shared flats now the most common form of accommodation for students, “Hotel Mum” remains popular
It is increasingly rare for students to live alone. Shared flats have outpaced private apartments as the most frequent form of accommodation for students. In 2018, almost one third of students had a room in a shared apartment, while around one in four still lived at home with their parents. These are the findings of a survey of around 150,000 students within the CHE University Ranking.
