Although many of our students do live in rented rooms, flats, apartments, or houses, this is not a service we specifically offer. It can be a good solution for you, but you should also be aware of the potential costs and problems associated with renting privately.

There are many estate agents and agencies that offer rented accommodation. If you are thinking of renting a private flat or house in the area, you might consider the links provided on this page. However, please understand that you will be personally responsible for making any booking, and any contractual agreement that you enter into.

Below are some considerations that you should think about when renting. Please feel free to use these questions as a starting point when dealing with a letting agent or landlord.

  • Is there a minimum rental period?
  • Do I need to pay a deposit in advance?
  • How much is the deposit, and when should it be paid?
  • Is my deposit refundable? When and under what conditions will a refund be made?
  • Will I be liable for council tax payments? If so, what band does the property fall into?
  • What utility bills will I be liable for?
  • Will I need to pay for a television licence?

Please remember that this list of questions is not comprehensive; it is only intended to be a starting point so that you can begin to consider the implications of renting.

Above all, make sure that you understand exactly what you are agreeing to. Read any contract carefully and ask as many questions as you can beforehand.
