Many students choose to live in private rented accommodation from their first year.
Our accommodation team can help you find a home in the private sector. You can browse Studentpad, our database of affordable, safe accommodation, rather than commercial letting agents. All landlords who register properties with us have signed up to our code of standards.
We also run house hunting meet-ups to help you find the right place and to meet people to share with. Our Facebook page can also help you to find people to live with.
If you are considering renting your property to students, please email email@example.com and we'll send you our guide for landlords.
Facts and figures
The average rent is £135 per week
(one-bed flat) or £80-85 per person per week
A deposit on one month's rent is typically required by landlords and letting agents.
Rent does not usually include bills, so you would be responsible for sorting out paying your own broadband, electricity, gas and water.
