Private Accommodation for New Students
As a new student, it may be that you prefer to look for your own
accommodation in the private sector rather than go into University
residences. If this is the case take a look at our
List for an idea of what's available.
If you have come to York St John through clearing, or if we
were your insurance offer with no guaranteed offer of
accommodation you may be advised that you need to find
accommodation in the private sector.
The Accommodation Team run a Landlords' Event for any
students in this situation, which will take place in late
August 2012. Househunting packs will be available and
representatives from the Accommodation Team will be on hand to
offer advice. If you are in a situation where you need to
find private accommodation you will be given the details of this
event once you have secured your place with us. Please contact the Accommodation Team if you
need further details.
To make the prospect of finding a private property a
little less daunting we have put together some vital information of
how to go about finding somewhere to live, how to enter into a
tenancy agreement and things to be aware of whilst your
tenancy is in force.
