Advice is available in the Students’ Union regarding all aspects of renting accommodation in the private sector, however, the Students' Union and the University recommend that students seek private sector accommodation through 'SU Lets', the letting agency in the Students' Union.
Help and support for checking a private sector contract before signing is available at the Students’ Union Advice Centre where an appointment can be made with an adviser. International and local students wishing to rent in the private sector can get advice by checking out the Students' Union website www.qubsu.org/advice.asp.

Queen’s recognises its responsibility to be a good neighbour, and that dealing with antisocial behaviour by students is a challenge. Queen’s approach is firm but measured, based on three key principles: Education, Partnership, Discipline.
Queen’s University, in partnership with the University of Ulster, Belfast Metropolitan College, St Mary’s College, Stranmillis College Groups, Belfast City Council and the Police Service of Northern Ireland, strives to ensure that the environment of areas surrounding the University is not adversely affected by student residents.
SU Lets - private sector accommodation
The University encourages first year students to apply for accommodation owned and managed by Queen's. For private sector accommodation, the University recommends 'SU Lets'.
SU Lets is the ethical lettings agency, which the Students' Union runs in association with local estate agent Morton Pinpoint. It provides high-quality accommodation from good landlords. It is the only place that the Students' Union and the University recommend to students for housing in the private rental sector. The properties on offer have to meet a high-quality 'Accommodation Code' decided by the Union. Simple and fair tenancy agreements are provided and deposits are protected.
The SU Lets office is in the Students' Union foyer.
You can also contact SU Lets at:
