Find a property
Search for properties online and find out which lettings agencies we work with.
USL advertise all available accommodation on the USL Facebook group and Studentpad. These websites gives you the ability to communicate with other students that may have a room available or you can post a message with your requirements so others can contact you.
Before you start looking:
- Gather your references (this is the main reason students lose out on properties)
- Understand recent right to rent legislation
- View our flowchart so that you know what to expect
With so many letting agencies to choose from, we encourage all students to ensure they have done sufficient research about what these agencies offer.
Agencies will charge a wide range of fees which varies from each agent and also have different requirements for you to pass their referencing process. Ensure you are clear about this before paying any monies or signing any application forms or tenancy agreements.
