The majority of the properties are within walking distance of the University, and ideal for those who don’t want the expense of a vehicle. Leases generally run from 1st January until 31st December and there is a wide range of rooms to suit your needs. The TUU also offers limited short term accommodation from 2 days to 3 months.
Many students choose to rent privately, either on their own or sharing with friends. If you are interested in this option, you will need to contact any of the local real estate agencies yourself.
