House hunting events

Our House Hunting Team is here to help if you're looking for private rented accommodation or need somewhere to stay temporarily while you are looking.

We have lots of information about renting privately on our website, but our House Hunting team is happy to help you in person if you’d like a bit more advice. Come and chat with the Tenancy Support team and get some helpful advice to help you search for accommodation.

Please come and attend one of our Housing Fairs within your campus in February 2024.

These events will give you the perfect opportunity to engage with local estate agents, landlords and owners of private student accommodation. Along with the support of the House Hunting team and Housing Hands who can help guide you through, the sometimes-confusing, process of finding suitable private accommodation.
