Private sector

There are many options for students wishing to live in the private sector from independent student villages to shared houses.

Whether you are a new student wishing to move into a privately rented house or a second or third year student looking for private accommodation, there are a number of student accommodation options around the campuses.

House-hunting

We understand that it can be daunting to find and secure the tenancy of a private house, but once you know what to do, it can be a straightforward process. Start by taking a look at the Students’ Union’s house hunting information and advice.

Where to live?

Think about which area would be most convenient in terms of location and facilities before you start.

How to search?

We recommend that you prioritise Nottingham Standard properties where possible. Remember to take your time, make informed and considered choices. The Students’ Union has information on Finding Accommodation.

Who to live with?

Most students share accommodation with others and choosing how many to share with is an important decision. Remember that if house hunting as a group you will be signing a legally binding contract to live together for the year so be sure that you are happy with your group before signing.

Help and advice

If you need housing advice or if you want to get your contract checked before you sign it you can contact the Student’ Union Advice team 

More details and advice:

Private landlords in England have to check that all adults living in their properties have the right to live in the UK - the "right to rent". You should expect your landlord to ask to see your passport or other documentation which evidences your immigration status if you are entering into a new rental agreement.

For example, a British citizen could provide a passport or driving licence and birth certificate. An international student may be required to provide their visa or other residence card. View more detailed information.

Students do not need to prove their right to rent if they are residing in University halls of residence or purpose-built accommodation solely created for students.

 

Most students share accommodation with others and choosing who and how many to share with is an important decision. Remember that if house hunting as a group you will most likely be signing a legally binding contract to live together for the year so be sure that you are happy with your group before signing.
