Upcoming events in Cambridge

We’ll be running House Hunting Days for students who are starting their course in September and live within the 35-mile radius, on the following dates:

  • 4 July 2017
  • 27 July 2017

These events will be held at our Cambridge Campus and will cover topics such as:

  • What accommodation works for me and how can I find it?
  • Booking and viewing rooms
  • Contracts, deposits and other ‘need to know’ legal info

You’ll also get a chance to use our House Hunting website with help from staff and we’ll pre-arrange some visits to private halls of residence and shared houses for you to view on the day.

Current students can also attend if they’re struggling to find accommodation.

Email us on with your student ID number, which date you like to attend and whether you’ll be bringing a guest with you. We’ll book you a space and let you know the full details about timings and location.
