Helping Students

It couldn't be easier. Start your search by entering your university or city and select the number of bedrooms you require.

The search results will then display homes relevant to you. If you want to view results more specific to your requirements, you can filter the results further using the options at the top of the page.

Click 'View Home' on a property you are interested in to view more detailed information and send an enquiry directly to the landlord or agent.
Once you have started your search, you can then refine and tailor the homes displayed on the results page to find your perfect home!
It couldn't be easier to book a viewing!

Search through the wide range of student accommodation available and send requests to book viewings on the homes you are interested in. You can do this by sending an enquiry directly to the landlord or agent of each property. The easiest way to do this is to click the orange 'Book Viewing' button on a property listing and filling in the form with your details.

There is no limit on the amount of enquiries you can make, so go ahead and get booking!

Once you have made your enquiry to the landlord or agent, you will usually receive a response within 24 hours from when the request was sent. If you do not receive a response, please let us know and we will look into this.
We encourage agents to remove their properties as soon as they become unavailable, so all properties shown on UniHomes should be available. However, it's best to check the availability when sending an enquiry to the landlord or agent, as occasionally a property advertised may have just been snapped up!
UniHomes is constantly updated with new student properties every day! We recommend you visit UniHomes on a regular basis during the search for your new home, as your dream home may appear live at any time!

You can also sign up to our newsletter to receive updates by popping in your email address on our home page.
Unfortunately, this means that we have no live properties in your location. Keep visiting UniHomes as we continue to launch into new cities, yours may be just around the corner!
The heart icons, when clicked, allow you to shortlist your favorite homes. Once you are happy with your choices, head to the shortlist area and benefit from the 'bulk' enquiry feature available at your fingertips!
A deposit is a refundable sum of money paid directly to the landlord or agent to secure the property. There are various rules and regulations a landlord or agency should adhere to regarding deposits so your money remains safe throughout your tenancy!

If you have any specific questions relating to your deposits, it's normally best to contact your landlord or agent.
Some landlords and agents charge tenants administration fees to cover the cost of setting up your tenancy agreement for the property.

If you are still unsure about what this means, we would advise you to please speak with the landlord or agent directly

To make things easy for you we have added small ‘heart icons’ to each property listing and on the search results so you can simply add them to your compare list, which allows you to compare properties side by side when you have finished your search.

Remember, you will have already viewed the properties' details, location, costs and features, so will have already narrowed down the homes you are interested in.
Simply click the 'X' at the top right of each listing on the compare page.
Once you have found a property you are wanting to enquire about, navigate to the 'Contact' tab within the individual property listing. You can then either send an e-mail enquiry, or call/text the landlord. Your enquiry will then be sent directly to the landlord.

After you have provided your name, contact number and email address, there is a message box to ask any questions about the property you may have. We recommend providing both your contact number and email to give the agent or landlord the best opportunity to get back in touch with you swiftly

If you are requesting a viewing it's probably a good idea to suggest some days and times that you and your group are available. Providing as much information as possible will make sure the landlord or agent can deal with your enquiry as efficiently as possible.
Some landlords have chosen to rent their properties to a full group of students rather than individual tenants. For example, some landlords will only accept a group of 5 students for a 5 bedroom property. If your group is smaller than the property you are interested in, we would recommend refining your search to only show properties that match your group size.
Once you have made an enquiry through UniHomes, the landlord or agent advertising that property will usually reply within 24 hours to arrange the viewing. If you do not receive a response back, please let us know.
There are plenty of student properties available so it's important you sign for the best one for you.

It's a good idea to look at the advantages and disadvantages for each property as well as speaking with friends and family to get their opinions to ensure you're making the right decision! Remember, although the more desirable student homes tend to get filled earlier, you can view as many properties as you want until you find the right one for you.
Once you have found your new home, speak with the landlord or agent and arrange for the paperwork to be completed. If UniHomes are providing the bills element of your rental package, then your landlord or agent will ask you to complete a Utility Bills Service Agreement.

If you have any questions in relation to our utility service, please get in touch with us directly.
All properties on UniHomes are inclusive of utility bills, and therefore your bills are always managed on your behalf, leaving you to concentrate on the more important things whilst you're at university!

It's simple! We collect a monthly Direct Debit from each tenant for their equal share, and we ensure that your gas, electricity, water, internet and TV licence are in place for your contract start date.

If your utility bills are provided by the landlord or agent, be sure to contact them to make sure everything is in place for for when you move into your new accommodation.

If UniHomes are managing your utilities, everything will be in place for when you move into the property. All you need to do is send us the meter readings for both gas and electricity when you move in and we’ll do the rest of the work for you.
The gas and electricity accounts will be set up ready for when you move into the property. We will just require the opening meter readings once you have moved in.
Your gas and electricity accounts will be setup prior to your move-in date, however we will need you to submit opening meter readings at the start of your contract in order to activate your account.
This isn't a problem, as we'll use your initial meter reading to open your account.
Your excessive usage gas and electricity allowances depend on the size of the house. The allowances are always made clear on the UniHomes Utility Services Agreement that the landlord or agent will ask you to complete when signing for a property.
You must act immediately. Call the Gas Emergency Services on 0800 111 999.
