Private rented accommodation
We make finding private sector rental accommodation a lot less daunting
Looking for accommodation in the private rental sector can be daunting, particularly if you are unsure where to start. Therefore London South Bank University's (LSBU) Accommodation Service has a number of helpful resources, available either by mail, email, intranet and for collection. See contact details for the Accommodation Service. Some documents can be downloaded below.
LSBU housing guidance
We produce a Guide to Private Accommodation with information and useful tips to help you when looking in the private sector. We also produce a guide with information on hotels and hostels for short-term accommodation or long-term solutions.
Hotels and hostels can be particularly useful if you need a base while you look for the right private accommodation. Be aware that prices for hotels and hostels vary widely in price and the cheapest accommodation can be a shared dormitory. Download our Hotel and Hostel Guide (PDF File 56 KB).

This is updated on a weekly basis and includes available flats, houses, bedsits and shared accommodation as well as a Flat Share list for those who prefer to live with other students in the private sector.
