Landlord Rent Reference

If you are a current student and have lived in University accommodation, we can provide you with a rent reference.

Before you can move into a rented property, your landlord or lettings agent might ask you to provide a rent reference to show that you are a suitable tenant.

To request a landlord rent reference from the University, simply follow the instructions below:

Step 1: Complete the Rent Reference Request form

You must complete the Rent Reference Request form. You will need to provide your full name, University of Bristol student number and the name of your landlord or lettings agency.

Step 2: We send you the rent reference

We aim to process your request within five working days. In order to produce your rent reference, we need to check your student record and rental account.

A standard rent reference is produced which includes a statement of your rental account. This will show if you are up to date with rental payments or owe money. If you owe money, you can make a payment to pay off your debt and request a new rent reference.

We will email your rent reference to your student email address.

Step 3: Send the reference to your landlord or letting agent

It is your responsibility to forward on the rent reference to your landlord or lettings agency.
