    I applied to Surrey through clearing, however they have no accommodation left.
    Does anybody know the local area and know how much of a problem this would be?

    Hi, I'm starting new to the university and didn't get the accommodation i wanted, so I'm going to have to look at private accommodation. I wanted to ask what references would I need and do contracts for private accommodation usually last 12 months?Thanks.

    Hello,

    Have a look here for information about renting privately: http://www.surrey.ac.uk/accommodation/private/

    In most cases a 12 month contract is the norm, but some can vary depending on the property. I can't give many details about references I'm afraid as again this is likely to vary between lettings agents/landlords. In my experience as a student I've had to supply things like a character reference and you'll usually need to have a guarantor for your rent.

    If you need any more info then please feel free to get in contact with our accommodation team who will be able to help you:

    Good luck with your property search

    If you're giving up a room in halls I'd love one, I don't really mind the band but I didn't really want to live off-campus!
