Home finders checklist

Alternative accommodation options

Whatever your accommodation need it is always worth calling our Residential Services team first on 01202 961671 who will be happy to talk over your options (we may well have someting suitable for you in one of our own halls of residence or Unilet properties). However, if, for whatever reason, you do need to review alternative accommodation options we've pulled together some here for your consideration:

To help you find the right room out in the private sector we’ve prepared a home finders checklist (pdf, 132kb), which contains helpful advice and hints for what to look out for and consider during your search.

*Even though these properties aren't BU managed, they're all signed up to the National Code, a scheme designed to provide reassurance for tenants that their accommodation complies with benchmark standards and is safe and well managed. Take a look at the options below to find out more about these properties, and how to book.
