“Although there’s a commonly held perception that poor quality student housing is a rite of passage, it is both disgusting and unacceptable that students should live in vermin infested housing in this day and age.

“Our research has raised alarming health and safety issues and we are calling for more effective enforcement of standards to ensure students’ homes are fit for study,” NUS Vice President (Welfare), Colum McGuire commented.

Opto Living is proud to provide a selection of en-suite and studio rooms in Luton which surpass the expectations of students.

“We are very happy that both of our student developments are running at 100% occupancy and many students have decided to stay year after year. The modern spacious design of the buildings provide a comfortable and safe environment for students,” a representative from Opto Living explains.

“Our on-site management team is based in the reception of each building which means that someone is available should any of our students have any problems or issues. The all-inclusive nature of the pricing structure also means that students don’t have to worry about running up expensive heating bills in the winter.”
