Everything you need to know about finding a place to live in the private sector

Moving into private accommodation needn’t be stressful. These pages provides a handy overview of what you can expect to encounter at each stage of your private housing journey.

The Student Hub is able to offer support and advice every step of the way. 

We know that due to the current pandemic, the process of searching and viewing your potential new home is likely to be different from the norm and particularly difficult for international students. Make sure you visit our dedicated Private Accommodation and Covid-19  pages with useful FAQs to guide students through your private housing search. 

We are planning a number of virtual events in 2021 to ensure you get all the advice you need for your private housing journey. In March, we are hosting our virtual Introduction to Private Housing. In May we'll have more events including Find a Flatmate, virtual snapshots where we'll focus on specific topics and we'll also have a virtual exhibition where you can meet a selcetion of private housing and service providers. Follow us on Twitter to stay connected.
