See SWNS story SWFLATS: Britain's poshest student digs are expected to be snapped up despite costing nearly £1,000 a month - taking the cost of a degree to £100,000. In accommodation far removed from the squalor of normal student houses these pictures show what some lucky pupils joining Exeter University later this year can expect. The development of Exeter's old city library and records office into 44 luxury flats aimed at undergraduates will be ready in time for the next intake of students. Price range up to £11,220 per student a year, and flats come equipped with all the latest appliances including 100MB broadband, 24-hour helpdesk services, Wi-Fi and flat-screen smart TV.
