The University of Northampton can help you to find suitable private rental properties. Accommodation Services produce a housing list on our Student Pad with details of properties that meet our high safety standards.

If you live in private rented accommodation you may need to consider costs other than rent, for example utilities, including water and electricity, council tax and car parking.

The student’s guide to private sector rented accommodation provides a brief overview of private sector accommodation in Northampton, including where to look and what to look for when considering renting a property, information about the housing list and to access help, advice and guidance leaflets.

There is small stock of Nursing accommodation at Northampton General Hospital, owned and managed by the hospital. For more information regarding this, see the Nursing Accommodation leaflet.
