Private Accommodation Search

Students are now beginning their search for private accommodation for next year. See below for information on where to look and what support is available.

Private accommodation in the city
Before you begin your search for private accommodation then take a look at the advice and information on our webpage to prepare you for your search for 2017/18. We look at the different private accommodation options available including:

  • Purpose-built private halls of residence
  • Shared houses and flats
  • Properties through private individual landlords
  • Properties through student letting agencies
  • Living with a resident landlord/host family

We also offer advice on the Right to Rent checks which were put in place from 1 February 2016 and provide a useful Housing Terminology document for you to know the typical jargon used.

The Accommodation Office manage StudentPad which is a free, accommodation search portal. Here, you can find private accommodation, including  Afs/Unipol accreditated properties and larger purpose-built residences.

The accommodation adverts for 2017/18 will be live from 22 November 2016. If you have any queries about this, please contact the Accommodation Office directly.

The Students’ Guild Accommodation Fair
Come along to the Students’ Guild Accommodation Fair which takes place on Tuesday 22 November between 11:00am-3:00pm in The Great Hall. You will have the opportunity to meet accommodation specialists including local landlords, agents and members of the Accommodation Office.

You can get advice and support from the Guild Advice Unit, including the contract-checking service, and you can find out about the huge array of options, property types, and locations available to you.

For further information on the Accommodation Fair and to see what support is in place with the Students’ Guild please visit the Guild Website and view their forthcoming accommodation events.
