Unipol are here to help!
We can help you to meet other students who are looking to flat/house share or help you find something om your own. We are fully supported by the University of Leeds and Leeds University Union (LUU).
Unipol help you to decide what you want, how to find it, and how to get the best deal:
By using the Student Notice Board
By coming to one of our mixing days, arranged for PGCE, Postgraduate and Mature Students
By visiting our Housing Hub on Woodhouse Lane
Search the Unipol Website to find accommodation
The Unipol website provides you with the largest choice of student properties available in Leeds in one place, allowing you to easily compare properties to ensure you’re getting the best possible value for what you want.
Before you start using the website it’s a good idea to create an account, you can do this by clicking ‘My Unipol Login’ located at the top right of the homepage. Registering makes it easier for you to contact landlords and post on the notice board.
The Student Notice Board
Our noticeboard is designed specifically for students to make contact with other students and is a great way of finding extra house mates. You can use the noticeboard to form a group to go house hunting with, find an extra person to fill a spare room or even find a replacement for yourself.
There is a dedicated postgraduate board and many students use this to make contact before attending one of our house hunting mixing events. To post messages just select Noticeboard from the choices under the housing tab, choose the board you wish to post in and select ‘new thread’ to post a new message or click on a message you wish to respond to.
New messages are checked and approved approximately every six hours.
Post Graduate Housing Events
Unipol works closely with the universities and colleges to organise house hunting mixing days so students can meet each other and look for privately rented properties together. We can facilitate you meeting other postgraduate students or if you prefer we can help you find an individual let.
