Types of listings

The listings are placed with the Service by private landlords that want to rent to students. The listings are divided into various categories depending on the type of housing. Those types are defined by the following:

  • HOUSES: Includes detached, semi-detached or townhouses.
  • ROOMS IN PRIVATE HOMES: Rooms in private homes without access to cooking facilities.
  • ROOM AND BOARD: Generally a room in a house or building with meals provided.
  • ROOMS WITH COOKING FACILITIES: Generally rooms in a house or building with access to a kitchen or cooking area.
  • APARTMENT TO SHARE: Individuals who have an apartment and are looking for roommates.
  • HOUSE TO SHARE: Individuals who have a house and are looking for roommates.
  • SUBLETS: Places that the current tenant is trying to rent out.
  • TEMPORARY:Someone who needs a place on a temporary basis but might be able to arrange a longer term.
  • JUST LISTED: Listings that have been submitted in the last 7 days.

Please note that the listings are NOT INSPECTED and SHOULD NOT BE RENTED "SIGHT UNSEEN".

Explanation of Your Search Results

Order of Listings Upon Search: Once you have either clicked on or inputted your search criteria, the results will appear in the following manner. Obviously, the categories (Type of Accommodations, Rental Price and Distance to Campus) that you have requested will be searched and honored, but the results will appear such that each of the "16 Designated Areas" of London will come up in the following order;

1. OLD NORTH
2. DOWNTOWN
3. NEAR SOUTH
4. NEAR WEST
5. WHITEHILLS
6. MASONVILLE
7. NORTH LONDON
8. KIPP'S LANE
9. NORTHEAST LONDON
10. EAST LONDON
11. SOUTHEAST LONDON
12. OLD SOUTH
13. SOUTHWEST LONDON
14. WEST LONDON
15. OUTSIDE LONDON
16. UWO CAMPUS
 

See "Designated Areas on a map. Then the results will appear in ascending order of price (lowest to highest) in each "Designated Area". The lowest price may be a unit that has no advertised price and the landlord is willing to negotiate. Some "Designated Areas" may not appear because they are outside the "Distance to Campus" that you have requested.

"Distance to Campus" is based on what a landlord tells the Service, but it is generally the distance from the accommodation to the edge of campus that is closest to the accommodation and is measured in a straight line.
