FAQ 564
When do I start looking for next year's accommodation?

We suggest that you do not need to start looking for your accommodation for the following academic year until at least January of that year. We recommend that you come along to the housing fair run by the Students' Guild in November each year. You will have the opportunity to meet with landlords for the private sector and chat with the Accommodation Office.

It may be that we will have some University accommodation for returning students, however, this will not be confirmed until January. There are also plenty of shared houses in the private sector.

We have our own link to the private sector, Studentpad. For more information on private sector accommodation, please visit our website.

The most important first step is to make sure you are selecting the right people to share accommodation with you. Make sure you have similar habits, interests and budgets as this may help to avoid housemate fallout's later.

For more information, please see the Students' Guild Advice Unit website.

We suggest that you start looking for your accommodation for the following academic year from January onwards, during which time we hold House Hunting sessions and accommodation fairs with help and advice about where to start.

We produce a range of private sector information to help you find the right accommodation each year, including a House Hunting Guide

We have also set up a Facebook Group called 'Find a Student Housemate'.
