Ah, student living. Those heady days of the cheapest alcohol you can get your paws on, the same Tesco Value pasta for lunch and dinner, and pretending that orange squash mixed with vodka is a legitimate cocktail.
At least, that was our experience of uni life.
It turns out that some people have far more luxurious university times.
Some students, for example, don’t live in tiny rooms in grotty halls, but in their very own fancy flats.
And they pay £15,492 a month for the pleasure.
Yep, there are indeed student homes available to rent at such a high price. No points for guessing where they are.

Photos give you a glimpse inside one of these plush three-bedroom pads, located in Holborn, central London, so you can see just what £3,575 a week actually gets you.
Spoiler: this place is far nicer than your average student digs, and along with the luxury surroundings, the rent also includes all bills, weekly housekeeping, and replenished essentials such as bed linens and Nespresso coffee pods.
Oh, and you won’t have to buy your own pots and pans, as those are all provided, too.
Basically, it’s a bit like living in a hotel, with the massive bathtub and 4k HD TVs to match.

The agency marketing the property, Student Luxe London, says it helps students with bigger budgets find more private and luxurious places to study.
Managing director Josh Dananof said: ‘A few main features of our service include 24/7 concierge and maintenance, fully serviced and equipped apartments, weekly housekeeping with fresh linen and towels, and locations within walking distance to London’s top universities.’
The flat is next to Lincoln’s Inn Fields, so gives easy access to the London School of Economics and Political Science and the London College of Fashion.
The agency does offer some slightly more affordable options in different locations, FYI, with the cheapest we could spy coming in at £675 a week for a one-bed flat inside a hotel near Regent’s Park.
The website also notes that friends and family are entirely welcome to visit, so no judgement if you decide to make pals with someone who can afford such a place.
