Private Accommodation – Flat or House Share
Coventry University London have enlisted the services of the University of London Housing Services (ULHS) who run a private housing service for students in London. Both current students and those with an offer to study can access these services.
How can the ULHS assist Coventry University London students?
Helping you find accommodation
The ULHS have registration schemes for private landlords, letting agents, private halls and other providers of private accommodation for students. These accommodation providers advertise their properties and rooms on the ULHS online property database.
Before signing contracts for private accommodation, students can ask one of the Housing Advice Team for assistance. They will give you guidance on what to look out for and to do when you are renting privately and check the contract for unfair clauses, which may cause you problems in your accommodation.
The Housing Advice Team is dedicated to supporting students who experience problems in private accommodation and offers advice on a range of issues including deposit disputes, disrepair and problems with letting agents.
