Uni Student Accommodation – How the Heck !?

04 Aug


Help!!  As none of my circle and none of my best friends circle have ever been to University [well not within the last 20+ years], we are stuck in what the procedure is for finding accommodation for a second year university student who is studying at Central St Martins in London.

I know of a web site where you can see where/who has rooms in a house share available.

On Monday I intend to call the Uni see if they have a student body or someone who can advise.

If any reader out there has experience and can give me/us some hints tip and what to be wary of, that would be an enormous help.

I am wondering if the way is to contact a letting agent, give them a budget and a day mum and daughter can go look and tell the Agent to make appointments at 4 or 5 places to go see and check out

      Thank you Tara. She is not an overseas student, she is a Uk resident, and imited funds. We’ve found some letting agents and good web sites so we may be heading the right way.

    Hi There,

    I’d recommend you try the University of London Housing Service (ULHS) who have landlord listings for students as well as a free advisory service. They also have details of larger student housing schemes like urbanest who have places in Hoxton and a new one right next to CSM at King’s Cross.

    Hope this helps 🙂
