Next week brings the return of Edge Hills housing week, this can be daunting for first years who are looking for their second year accomodation but this week is all about helping you and saving you a lot of stress. So here is what will be going on throughout the week
- House hunting workshops
Campus life will be holding lots of housing workshops throughout the week in order to provide as much support for students as possible alongside the money advice team and the students union advice center. These sessions will provide advice on:
- Contracts & deposits
- Tenancy Deposit Schemes
- Budgeting advice
- Things to know once you have moved in/moved out of a property
2. Annual housing fair
On the same day as the fair, the accommodation team release the official housing list, this is super useful as it only contains accredited landlords and makes your life a lot easier. The housing fair as well has lots of stands to help and advise you on renting privately, as well as the careers service being on hand to help with any part time jobs queries. All in all this is a really helpful event to go to so make the most of it if you can!
Remember not to rush into getting a house that you can’t afford as you will find something that suits you and your friends eventually!
I thought I could include this video made by NUS about renting a house in the hope it helps you!
