Coming to RGU and leaving home for the first time can be one of the most daunting yet exciting journeys you will ever embark on. It is an amazing chance to start living independently, to meet like-minded people and to make friends for life. 

Whether you are living at home with your parent/guardian(s), staying in halls or private accommodation or even just searching for a new place, then you might have a lot of questions about renting and student accommodation. If you have any questions or problems which you can't find an answer to on these pages, contact RGU:Union Advice & SupportRGU Accommodation Services Team or& ResLife. The RGU Accommodation Services Team can help you with any queries you may have while you are staying in halls, and in conjunction with ResLife, they will support you if you have accommodation and related welfare issues.

Shelter and NUS also have a lot of advice on student accommodation and your rights as a tenant, and NUS runs the Ready to Rent campaign which have been created to help you develop both the confidence when trying to source quality accommodation and the knowledge about your rights as a renter. Watch the video below if you are getting ready to rent:
