Please remember, houses are available throughout the year, so do not panic if you don’t find a place to live in October or November. Your housing group may change a lot from what was initially planned, particularly in Terms 2 and 3 as some students decide not to return to University the next year. So, lots of people will be looking for new housemates to enter the contract. The important thing is to keep calm and not rush into housing.
