Private Sector Housing at UON

We can help you to find suitable private rental properties. Our Housing Team produce a housing list on our Student Pad site that provides you 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 an overview of private sector accommodation in Northampton, including where and what to look for when considering renting a property, information about the housing list, featured properties and guidance leaflets.

There is a small provision of Nursing accommodation at Northampton General Hospital, that is owned and managed by the Hospital. For further information please contact the Accommodation Office on 01604 545455.
