All the chosen favourites feature the kind of facilities and furnishings that students are rushing to share on social feeds.

Sheffield’s Redvers Tower is among the top pads,

This accommodation, in the heart of Sheffield, includes a social area with hanging chairs and low hanging lights.

Not only worthy of a #roomwithaview post, students can imagine they are in a contemporary lounge bar while they are just a stone’s throw distance from their bedroom.

Far from the cramped and dingy bedsits of yesteryear, that students once expected to inhabit in cities, the ten photogenic student digs include a seventies Scandi-inspired communal area, a neon-lit gaming room, a music room complete with a sleek grand piano, blooming hanging plant features and neon wall art.

Topping the list, The Stay Club Colindale- a 19-floor student accommodation situated in the new, up-and-coming area of Colindale, not only features contemporary bedrooms with outstanding views of leafy London, but hosts an in-house nightclub, an impressive roof terrace that needs no filter to make it look good, a cinema room and a lounge area that’s wall-lined with cult vinyl records.
