Housing Week

26 - 30 November

Housing is one of those issues that affects every single student that comes through our gates. From your first year halls accommodation, to the end of your time at uni, we want to ensure that you're getting the most out of your housing experience. In second and third year, it's likely that you'll move in to private accommodation - that's where Housing Week comes in.

Need to find a reliable house? We're on it. Struggling to find housemates? No problem. Not sure if the contract is right for you? We've got you.

And remember, we have a dedicated member of the Advice Centre reserved solely for housing issues, so any time of the year, give us a shout and we can help you out!

From meet and greets with all the local estate agents to workshops helping you find your perfect home, Housing Week is all about making sure that you're getting the most possible for your money and helping you to avoid common housing mistakes.
