Housing Advice Fair

Each year we run an event to deliver the information you need for finding somewhere to live for your second year and how to make your stay in private rented accommodation simple and hassle-free.

Staff from the Accommodation Office are on hand to answer your questions, and a presentation is held every half hour with essential information about your search, for example how, where, when to look and addressing the questions you need to consider in order to find the right place along with a stall for individual queries.
