Student Accommodation Code

It’s important to us that your accommodation is safe and of a good standard. The University’s eligible properties are signed up to the Student Accommodation Code. All off-campus houses are subject to House of Multiple Occupation (HMO) licensing laws and several of our houses are accredited by the local council. Externally-managed accommodation is covered by Unipol/ANUK National Code.
