House shares and private sector accommodation
There is a lot for you to think about when moving into, living in, or moving out of a room / flat in the private sector. This page on Glamlife gives you an overview of each stage.
This page is accurate for students on courses accredited by the University of South Wales (formerly Glamorgan). It has not yet been updated to include advice for students whose courses are accredited by the University of Wales (i.e. courses based in Newport).
Here’s an overview of the various web pages on Glamlife that offer guidance about living in private sector accommodation:
- Looking for accommodation
- Accommodation: legal matters when renting a student flat / house
- Shared accommodation: tips for living in a shared house / flat
- Being a good neighbour
- Safety at home – and insurance
We've added a list of popular social bookmarking on our pages - it is not a complete list, but the same selection of sites that the BBC have identified as being useful to a UK audience.
