Our database contains a wide range of offers of accommodation from landlords, letting agents and private halls of residence. This includes both complete flats and houses and individual rooms in shared flats and houses. Offers are primarily for long term lettings (more than 6 months) but there are also some short let options.

However, in order to obtain detailed information on properties, including the contact details of the landlord or agent advertising, you will need to create an account and be logged in.  You can do this by clicking “Register” on the top right hand side of the website.  The process of registering is fairly straightforward. We aim to respond to all registration requests within 24 hours during the working week and students at certain colleges will be able to get instant access by using their student ID number.

The database has been compiled from information supplied to the ULHS by landlords, letting agents and private hall providers. The details provided are published in good faith and we believe them to be a true reflection of the properties listed but they have not been independently verified or inspected. If you find any details to be inaccurate, please inform the ULHS so we can investigate. For more information on what the ULHS requires of the landlords and letting agents advertising on the database please see the our landlords and letting agents section.

Please ensure that you check that properties meets all safety requirements, seeking advice and information as to those standards where necessary. The University of London and the ULHS shall not be held liable for any loss or damage (however caused) suffered by you while looking for, or living in, private sector accommodation.

Please note carefully that you should not send money to landlords, letting agents or others before viewing properties listed on this database. The ULHS recommends that before making a payment, you should obtain a copy of the draft tenancy/licence agreement and have it checked by a housing advisor. See our Get Advice section for more information.

Not all of the different private accommodation options for students are incorporated into the database so please use the other sections on this Find Accommodation section to explore other options.
