Stop Housing Haste

 

Welcome to the Stop Housing Haste toolkit

 

House hunting is an exciting part of student life, but it is important that housing is not a decision that is rushed into without preparation and thoughtful consideration.

 

Many students rush into contracts without knowing their contract rights or their housemates.

 

We at the students' union want to #StopHousingHaste, and we need your help. We want to support students, ease some of the pressures you face at this time of year, and encourage you to take your time before you sign any housing contracts.

 

Housing is an area that affects every student, which is why it is important that you are well informed, equipped, and supported by your students’ union before you sign on the dotted line.

 

This toolkit will provide a step by step guide to help you before and during the house hunting and contract signing process. This toolkit also contains a range of tools that you can use to make sure that you are thoroughly prepared to make those big decisions.
