Bangor University Housing
The Student Housing Office aims to provide a one-stop shop for students’ private sector housing needs/issues, providing them with the tools to make informed decisions and taking the worry out of house hunting.
For most students, living in private rented accommodation is an enjoyable and fun part of University life. However, if problems with housemates, landlords or properties arise, then the Student Housing Office team have a widespread range of knowledge and experience of housing issues, plus access to outside agencies and resources. This means that we can give you the knowledge and skills to tackle any housing issues you may have during your tenancy.
The Student Housing Office offers advice in good faith based on the information provided by students who may be living, or considering living, in privately rented accommodation.
We also provide contract guidance, so before you sign a housing contract bring it in to the Student Housing Office and we will go through it with you, explaining the terms and conditions, so that you can make an informed choice. Should you require legal advice on any issue, we can refer you to the appropriate service.
The official University 2017/18 housing list is available now.
The Student Housing Office deals with privately rented accommodation.
