We've been hit by a sudden surge of visits from students looking for housemates at the Advice Centre. Whether you're looking for a group to join, on the hunt for a housemate to complete your group, or seeking a replacement housemate, it can be hard to find the right person.
We've compiled some key pointers, which should make things a little easier for you.
Here are some platforms connected to the university and SU that you could post on:
You can also use external websites such as www.spareroom.co.uk and www.gumtree.com. However, please be aware that these sites are not owned or regulated by us and are more likely to have fraudulent users.
Be safe, never meet anyone alone, and always meet in a public place.
Finally, remember that it is completely normal to feel overwhelmed by this process at times. You can always book an appointment with the Housing Advisor, who can give you more personalised guidance.
