Launched in 2015, The Live Right Campaign aimed to support students during the search and the finding of safe and affordable accommodation whilst living and studying in Aberdeen.
Each year, the majority of students move from living at home to student accommodation or to private accommodation and have to make huge decisions about flats, contracts, suppliers, and more. It is important that students not only have a clear place to go to get the information but are also provided with the opportunities to find a safe and affordable place to stay.
The Live Right pages on the RGU:Union website were developed to provide students with the tools to both rate and comment on Aberdeen-based letting agencies. Accommodation advice was also supplied which addressed topics such as popular housing myths, moving-in checklists and help with flat hunting. The highlight of the campaign was the Live Right Housing Fair which was launched to give students the opportunity to meet and speak to accommodation providers and to, ultimately, help all students of RGU find safe and affordable accommodation.
