The Students’ Union provides a property finding service, SU Homes, which specialises in helping students secure local, private accommodation.

Options range from rooms in shared houses, resident landlords, letting an entire house, and purpose built student accommodation.

SU Homes does not charge administration fees and your deposit is held securely as part of a government-authorised deposit scheme. All the properties they work with in Colchester are accredited by Colchester Borough Council.

As from 1 February 2016, all landlords have to check your immigration status gives you the right to rent in the UK before granting a tenancy agreement within private housing.

Finding a home can be stressful, however, it’s also exciting to be independent and living with your friends, making the most of the opportunities ahead of you.

Our aim is to try and make the whole process of finding a home as easy as possible. We help you at every stage of the process from finding the property that will become your home to signing the contract and moving in.
