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. For further information please visit www.sulets.net
Advice is available in the Students' Union regarding all aspects of renting accommodation in the private sector. For further information please visit www.qubsu.org/advice.asp
*Please note that students who have already completed either their first year of an undergraduate degree at Queen’s or are returning to complete a second undergraduate or postgraduate degree are classed as ‘returning students' and not as students in their first year of study.
