Sometimes there are private accommodation on the uni website or advertise but I would really look into it make sure that you are getting a good price with most things included such as water and electricity etc. It may be an idea to house share as well to spread the cost.

Hiya!

I would recommend emailing your university's student housing team. You can explain to them how you feel and then they can recommend some options to you.

Your university will have a mix of their own halls, but they may also partner up with external housing company's (such as my university partners with "Unite Students") and can recommend them. There will also be private halls of accommodation available.

By speaking with your housing team they can offer you your best options as they will know the accommodation better than anyone and make sure you make a safe decision

Best of luck! Sam- Official Student Rep

Just keep an eye out on the prices, discounts and rental periods as some may appear better but in reality may not be. Unite have not been great with the covid-19 rent free period so just be wary if this does last longer. You may be fine however. If you are unsure speak to the accom team at your uni they will help im sure. Im glad i went with uni owned ones as they had control over the situation and were quick to refund me during this new lockdown
