What happens if i dont manage to find housing for second yr?- Uni of Bath

Hi so ive been house searching since december tbh and havent had any luck, my group always fell through or the houses i'd go see would already be reserved... so now the yr is ending in a couple weeks and i still havent secured a place for next yr :frown: I was just wondering if house searching over the summer break is rlly a thing in bath and what happens if the second yr comes and me and my group havent rlly found anything.. the uni doesnt seem to provide much support tbh ive sent multiple emails and they werent much help. Are we just homeless for next yr or do landlords continue posting new properties over the summer too? T-T I've been rlly stressing with this paired with assignments coming up its a lot to deal with.

thank you 🙂 the 1 bed and ensuits are way out of my budget but i'll look into the room share
Your best bet is to look on Facebook groups for people who are looking for someone to take their room or for a spare people. I highly doubt you’ll find an landlords advertising this late in the year and wouldn’t risk waiting.

You’d either have to find some sort of temporary accommodation (air bnb, hotel) until people start having rooms to take over once the term begins or I guess you could take a year out. There is not enough uni owned accommodation for incoming first years as is so I can’t see anyone being offered that

I mean it’s not down to the uni to find people somewhere to live haha. Yeah people always drop out and stuff so look for people to take over rooms. Lots come out for people to takeover in January cause of half year placements like business.
