Many students choose to live in private rented accommodation, including around a third of our first year students. You'll have more freedom and independence in where you live and you can choose to be close to the city.
Our accommodation team can help you find a home in the private sector. You can browse Studenthomes – our database of suitable, safe accommodation – rather than using a commercial letting agent. All landlords who register properties with us have signed up to our code of standards.
The average rent is around £85–130 per person per week (shared house).
- A deposit on one month's rent is typically required
- Rent does not usually include bills, so you would be responsible for sorting out paying your own broadband, electricity, gas and water.
