We advertise flats and houses within easy reach of the campus (Uxbridge, Cowley, Yiewsley, West Drayton and Hillingdon) to groups of between three and seven friends, all of whom must be students. To be eligiable you need to be a full-time student (including students on placement).
The contract will usually be between 39 and 52 weeks, depending on the property and the start date. All contracts will normally start in June, unless the property has come on the market a little later in the year. Rent is paid to the University in four instalments, as you would if you were living in halls.
The size of the property and amount of communal space varies from house to house. We request that all bedrooms contain a bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers, desk and chair. Some landlords will also supply shelves or bookcases.
In communal areas, enough seating for the number of occupiers should be provided, and if space permits, there may be a dining table and chairs. All properties must have a fridge/freezer (or separate fridge and freezer), an oven and a hob.
