Are you a student?
Renting shared student accommodation can be many people’s first experience of renting in the private sector. Although this maybe daunting, there are lots of resources to inform you of your rights and responsibilities as a tenant, as well as helping you make the right choices around your tenancy.
The University of East Anglia’s Student Union operate a service called Home Run. Home Run operates a bureau in Union House and runs a website, that provides students with housing advice.
It is highly recommended that students use the Home Run list to find accommodation, though you can also find advice on looking for a home and contacting landlords on this website. You can also access a range of online tools that can help you make the most of your tenancy.
