The University Houses Office can advise on, and assist with, finding temporary accommodation, which could be located on a University campus*.

We have new guest/visitor accommodation located on the Jubilee campus and at Eviton House on our Sutton Bonington campus.  These studios and flats are available for rental for a minimum period of one month and a maximum of three months, and all are fully furnished with self-catering facilities.

Enquiries should be made to Tracey Schofield, University Houses Manager, Estate Office.

* Subject to availability

The Sunday Times 2015 article about Nottingham also offers a great guide to the area and advice on the best places to live.


Unipol work in partnership with the University of Nottingham and advertise a selection of the private sector property, ranging from furnished houses to a few self-contained flats.

Most University staff choose to find longer-term accommodation in areas close to the University campuses, such as Beeston, Chilwell and West Bridgford.  You can find information about many of these areas on Unipol’s “where to live in Nottingham” web page.

Estate Agents & Letting Agents

Estate agents and letting agents can also help you to find suitable accommodation.  Ensure that the agency is a member of a professional body, such as ARLA (Association of Residential Letting Agents) or NALS (National Approved Letting Scheme).  Both of these organisations require their members to sign up to a code of practice, which guarantees you a certain minimum level of service.

The best places to look for shared accommodation are on the web (try websites like or easy room-mate ), but you'll have better luck once you are here - people like to see their potential flat mates first.
