We've recently introduced a Shared Living Agreement to our University accommodation.
The Shared Living Agreement is a set of rules created together by each flat or house, and gives your accommodation group the chance to agree how you'd like to get the most out of living with each other.
The Shared Living Agreement includes preferences on how you are going to use the shared spaces and keep your accommodation clean and tidy, as well as general rules for living together and how you will resolve any conflict.
It's helpful to have these conversations early, as it can be a great opportunity to get to know each other better and to discuss your expectations. Coming to an agreement may mean making compromises, so make sure you are ready to make some allowances. Most of all, it's important that everyone is comfortable and happy living here.
As part of your Shared Living Agreement you will have less house inspections, offering you more independence. Our Student Living team can support you with the whole process.
