Privately rented accommodation

The Student Living Support team is here to help you with looking for a house or issues you might encounter when renting.

After your time in University accommodation


When it's time to move out of University accommodation there are all sorts of things to think about.

You'll need to find somewhere to live, know your rights and responsibilities and who can help if something goes wrong.

That’s why our Student Living Team continues to support you beyond your time living with us.

We offer a range of services and events to support you, including:

  • Studentpad, our own website for searching for student accommodation
  • networking groups to help find housemates
  • a contract reading service - we can check your accommodation contract to help you understand your responsibilities and rights
  • the Housing Forum - a talk for first year students searching for private accommodation for the first time

You can contact us for help or advice on accommodation-private@bath.ac.uk or 01225 386503.
