If you'd like to become a tenant with UWE houses, we’ve made the process of finding a house, or room, simple. Follow the steps below to take you from your initial search through to securing a tenancy with us.
Start by using the ‘Search for a Property’ tool to look for the availability based on the number of bedrooms you need and the academic year. Once you have created a shortlist of your favourite houses, you can 'Request a Viewing' and we will book a Zoom call with you to discuss your options. Please note, we will prioritise larger groups to suit the larger houses.
Once you've had a Zoom call with us to check your suitability, your group will be invited to attend a viewing. If after the viewing you would like to apply, we will send you a link to complete an application each. You will also be asked to each pay a £100 holding deposit. Both your application form and holding deposit are needed to secure your room. We will then contact your guarantor and reference them to progress your application.
When we are happy to proceed with your tenancy and all deposits have been paid, we will invite you to attend a contract signing meeting. This is your chance to discuss any questions you may have about the contract before you sign it. For more information on our contracts and to find a sample contract, please check the Help section of our website. Once the contract is fully signed, your £100 holding deposit will be refunded. You can then look forward to moving in on the tenancy start date.
