Page 1: Moving into private rented accommodation

The majority of student tenancies in the private rented sector start at the beginning of July or in September. If you are about to move in to a new tenancy then read on for some useful tips. This online module will take less than 10 minutes to read but could help you to avoid problems later. We will cover:

  • Council Tax Exemption
  • Deposits
  • Safety issues
  • Utilities, contents insurance and TV licenses
  • What to do if there are problems when you move in
  • Community
  • Moving in and Covid-19 information

There is a download at the end of the module with all of the information included as well as a link to our Coronavirus page and FAQ's, or you can refer back to this module at any time over the next year with the same link.

Also, keep in mind, if you have any problems with any aspect of renting accommodation please get in touch with us at
