I always feel safe and secure here knowing there’s someone on reception 24/7, monitoring who comes in and out. I have lived in London before so this was really important to me

After the first year, most students arrange to live in privately rented accommodation with their friends. You can find a list of student housing provided by private landlords at brufordstudentpad.co.uk. We will ensure that any landlords advertising through student pad hold relevant up to date safety certificates for your peace of mind. There is also information on the site about contracts, deposits and procedures as well as providing an accommodation search facility.
There are a number of local estate agents who would be happy to help you find a suitable room or property to rent locally. Rooms can cost anything from around £85 – £120 per week per person plus bills, and the contract can be for anything between 6 and 12 months depending on the individual property.
When renting in the private market it’s important to know your rights and responsibilities. If you are sharing with other students we highly recommend that you understand the legal implications of certain types of joint tenancy agreements, and you can find useful information from these sources:
Accommodation in Wigan
For students studying at our campus in Wigan, Greater Manchester, while there are no halls of residence attached to the campus there, students privately rent, often from landlords who have rented to students who have studied on the Wigan campus for over ten years. Many students live in flats on the same site as the College, a two minute walk away. There are also options available across the town. Some students also choose to live in the wider Greater Manchester footprint too, as there is good public transport and road connectivity into the town from cities such as Salford, Manchester and Liverpool, and free parking is available at the College grounds.
For more details about the different accommodation options at the College or if you are a landlord please get in touch with our Student Services team.
