Housing Advice

 

Getting your accommodation right whilst you are studying is very important. The type of accommodation you have may be dependent on your stage of study and level of study. Some students start off by living in University Residencies but not always. Whilst you may need to make a decision within a given timescale for applying for University Accommodation or signing for something in the private rented sector it is advisable for you to seek out some relevant and useful information in advance so that you can make an informed decision.
 
Seeking out advice is something we usually think of doing when we encounter a problem or difficulty but it can prevent these occurring if you seek advice before you actually make key decisions and Housing is no exception. It could also prevent you losing money.   Whilst the information on these pages are aimed to assist you by providing some information, if you would like to speak to an Adviser directly you can arrange this by contacting us.
