About us

Our mission is to help you find the best student accommodation available within the least amount of time.

Our story

Accommodation for Students was founded in June 2000 by two university students who experienced first hand the difficulties with finding student accommodation.

Since then it has become UK's No.1 Student Accommodation Website, featuring at the top of the search engines and hosting more content than any other student accommodation website.

Our mission

Our mission is to help students all over the World find and book student accommodation that meets their exact requirements.

We provide a fully searchable database including all types of accommodation (student houses, studios, flats and halls), enabling students to run very specific searches and retrieve detailed information on properties that match their exact requirements.

Unlike other student accommodation websites, all of the properties featured on our website are available to let and our database is constantly kept up to date. Accommodation providers pay to advertise and their properties are removed once let.

Our simple enquiry forms enable students to quickly contact student accommodation providers. Our student guides section advises both UK and International students on what to look for when renting student accommodation and advice on living with housemates. We also offer a live help customer support service manned by students to help students with any queries or contact accommodation providers on their behalf.

We want to provide students with the best-informed choices when selecting student property. We do this by giving our landlords and agents the opportunity to provide as much detail about their properties (the offering) and their background in student letting, in addition to showcasing past student testimonials.

Accommodation for Students is a completely free service for students. We pride ourselves in being transparent and clear in our objectives. We strive for continuous improvement and listen carefully to all feedback, in addition to conducting our own independent student accommodation research and constantly evaluating our website usage metrics.

We believe in giving back to our communities and support a large number of charities including Student Minds (the student mental health charity). We are also environmentally conscious and plant a tree for every property advertised on the website.
