Arranging alternative accommodation
If you want to do your own thing when you arrive or if you're in your second or third years, then Huddersfield Students’ Union have a dedicated service for current students. Hudlets provides impartial advice about housing options and offers support and guidance when you are looking for accommodation. They are available throughout the summer so you can drop them a line at any time and get the advice you need before you arrive.
What to expect
You will be expected to contact the Agent that is advertising the property and make an appointment to view it. If you like it, you will have to pay a deposit of about one or two months rent, which will be refunded to you when you leave the property, provided that it is still in good condition. You may also be asked for references, but we can help you with that.
It also very important to check whether utility bills (heating, electricity, council tax etc) are included in the rent, as they can be expensive.
