Housing Fair Information for Students

 

This year's fair is over but see below for information about house hunting!

Keele SU Housing Fairs are organised specifically for students looking for properties and for landlords who want to showcase the properties they have. All landlords are accredited by the North Staffordshire Landlord Accreditation Scheme and have had their tenancy agreements checked by advisers from Advice & Support at Keele SU (ASK), however Keele SU will have no control over the contract you ultimately sign - it is your responsibility to understand what you're signing up to. Please read our full Disclaimer.

You are welcome to email a copy of the tenancy agreement to su.ask@keele.ac.uk for checking or if you have any questions before you sign.

Please fill in our Housing Fair survey - we want your thoughts even if you've never attended a fair! You can also enter into our prize draw to win a Keele hoody.
