If you want to be a little more independent, there are plenty of homes to rent privately nearby and we can put you in touch with other students to share with so you can support each other and share transport costs.
We have an established register of private landlords with rooms to rent in the local towns. The details are circulated once we have received a deposit to applicants who have previously requested them. Champneys does not act as a broker or get involved in the contract between a student and a landlord therefore students should ensure they read all agreements thoroughly.
