Medway private housing
This section contains specific information about living off campus in Medway.
When looking for off campus accommodation, the University advises that students rent only accredited properties. The landlords of accredited properties have agreed to abide by a landlord’s Code of Conduct. This scheme supports better management of student houses in Medway.
The University has not visited, inspected or approved the accommodation offered by the local landlords and letting agents advertising on the Accreditation Scheme or StudentTenant sites. Prospective tenants should therefore expect variations in the suitability and possibly the standards of the housing offered. The University does not accept any liability or responsibility for the quality of the accommodation offered or the services provided by these landlords or agents or the content of any external websites.
It is recommended that all students read the general housing advice section which helps with:
- Finding accommodation
- Checking accommodation
- Understanding contracts
- What happens during a tenancy
After, come back to this section to read about:
For further details, please go to 'Finding accommodation' in the general housing advice section.
You may also wish to visit the off-campus accommodation forum. This is a student-to-student service, where ad-hoc requests or notices regarding off-campus rooms may be advertised.
The University main website also contains some useful information about the Medway region.
