Private Student Housing

A new home

For independence, a house or flat share can be the perfect choice. Worcester has a good supply of reasonably priced student shared properties, close to either the St John’s or City Centre campus. As an off-campus student, you still have access to the same facilities as students living on campus. This includes support from the Accommodation Team and Student Experience Team, who will be on hand to help you with any queries.

Our Accommodation team can help you find suitable private student housing. Whether you are a first year, returning or postgraduate student – there is plenty of accommodation available within walking distance of the University.

The University works closely with private landlords and Worcester City Council to ensure all student shared houses are accredited and meet with current legislation. We also offer advice on housing matters such as tenancy agreements and questions to ask landlords with regard to safety and fire precautions, so you are supported at every step of the way.

If you need to visit Worcester to view properties, temporary accommodation may be available in University residencies – contact the accommodation team on 01905 855137 to find out more.


Full details and more information about off campus student housing can be found by visiting the Worcester Student Pad website. Call in to the Accommodation office or telephone on 01905 855300 or 01905 855137 first to pick up the password.

This simple-to-use site gives full details of all accredited properties, lots of photographs and much more, and is also cleverly designed to assist groups of friends when applying for houses in years two and three. Please remember agreement lengths, deposit amounts and arrangements for paying bills vary from property to property. Do please take advice from the Accommodation Team if you are unsure about any of these important details.

Although the University of Worcester works closely with Worcester City Council to advertise accredited student shared properties in the local area, it does however reserve the right to refuse permission for a landlord to advertise on its Studentpad website. Decisions to remove an existing landlord from the register, or prevent a new landlord from advertising, will be made by the Residential Services Manager. The outcome of this will be non-negotiable.

If you have any questions about accommodation, please call 01905 855300 or 01905 855137 or email
