Here’s to house hunting!

It’s time to go… back to basics!


Moving into a house brings lots of questions. You’ve got to think about bills, setting up the internet and deposits, all while still meeting deadlines and attending lectures. You’ll end up looking as panicked as the cat above!

So to make it a bit easier there’s a list of private landlords which you can find here.

Don’t panic if what you’re looking for isn’t there. More houses come on the market throughout this term. I didn’t find my house until April last year!

If you want to read through your rights and advice surrounding housing, this is a great place to check out.

And finally there are housing drop-in sessions in The Compass on Tuesdays fron 10am-12 noon and Fridays from 2-4pm. Plus our advisors are always here if you want to book a confidential appointment.

The moral of the story is, if you feel yourself panicking about housing, contact the accommodation officeFXU advice service (email and remember to include a contact number) or email me at

And before you know it, you’ll be all ready for the real world of bills and responsibility! Just like this dog!
