House hunting


It can be daunting when it comes to finding a home but we are here to help and inform you about the main points of finding and securing a property.

Hopefully, the handy information in our guide, will help you find somewhere to live whilst at University.

Feel free to also join our ‘Housemate Finder’ Facebook page, dedicated to providing accommodation sharing services to students. The page can be used to either look for people to live with, somewhere to live or advertise your accommodation.

Rate Your Student Home is simple.  Leave a review of a Leicester property that you have recently lived in, to let other future tenants know more about it.

You can also look up properties to find a review, and even find local estate agents too.
