Student Accommodation Options
Increasingly students are choosing to fulfil their accommodation needs through private accommodation providers rather than applying directly to university accommodation. There are a number of reasons for this:
Often the accommodation that the university provides to students is private accommodation that they have reserved through a private accommodation provider.
Applying for university accommodation is a lengthy process that often takes weeks with no guarantee of receiving your first choice of accommodation.
By booking directly with a private accommodation you can usually receive your accommodation booking within 24 hours compared to waiting weeks by applying to the university direct and then receiving an accommodation offer for your third or fourth choice rather than your first choice.
UKEAS has realised that booking through a private accommodation provider brings many benefits to students and therefore offers a free comprehensive booking service with the following accommodation providers:
