Finding the perfect student accommodation doesn’t have to be a chore. But it’s important to remember that there is more to consider than just the size of your bedroom and how close you’ll be to the nearest pub! Scorp advisors will help you avoid all the common mistakes thousands of students make each year when moving into their new student house. In partnership with letting agents, Scorp makes it very easy for student groups, international students, and professionals to get a single, double room or shared accommodation suitable to individual budget needs.
We recommend every student to have a look on the below checklist and ensure that accommodation meets the requirement.
During your time at our partner universities you can choose to either live in allocated
- Student accommodation
- Private accommodation
We strongly advise all students to secure their accommodation before arriving. This will ensure that there are no difficulties with confirming your course, at immigration or at police registration on arrival (if required).
Students are advised to confirm their place early. After you confirm your place, you will be sent instructions on how to apply for student accommodation. If your circumstances prevent you from confirming early and you miss accommodation deadlines, we will do all we can to help you find alternative accommodation.
Please note that not all options are available for every intake/course start date. Accommodation is only guaranteed once you receive confirmation that a room has been secured.
Your accommodation will normally be ready the weekend before your course starts. This is also when we expect you to arrive. Exact tenancy dates will be confirmed when you secure your room – please do not arrive before your tenancy starts as your room will not be available. If you have to arrive before the start date, please view our Private Accommodation Factsheet (see below) to enable you to book temporary, short-term accommodation.
We are aware that there are a number of students enquiring about private stay, students who will be under 18 at the start of their course, and who wish to arrange their own accommodation in the private sector we will happy to assist them.
