WSU Housing Talks

Warwick SU Advice Centre is hosting a series of ‘Housing Talks’ to support you through your accommodation journey and to help you understand the do's and don'ts in securing accommodation for the next academic year 2022/23. There will be a total of three online talks throughout October and November 2021 which you can join by clicking the links below.

Houses are available throughout the year, so do not panic if you don’t find a place to live by 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.

Session 1 - House hunting and choosing a landlord/agent

Date & time: 13/10/21, 2pm

Our first talk will focus on house hunting and choosing a landlord in the private housing market. We’ll cover: what to look out for; what mistakes to avoid and preparing a checklist to help you find the right accommodation to suit your needs.

Warwick Accommodation will deliver a presentation about StudentPad (digital platform) to assist you finding a suitable property with ease for the coming year.

This will be followed by a live Q&A where you will get the opportunity to ask our experienced Advice team and Warwick Accommodation questions you have about renting accommodation. Don’t miss the opportunity, register to find out more!
