Help & Advice

Providing independent, confidential, and impartial advice to all University of Worcester students

The Help & Advice service offers year round accommodation advice to students in University Halls and in private accommodation. We can help check your contract and give you advice on looking for accommodation as well as try to help you resolve disputes.

We would strongly discourage students from moving house at this time. Please be reassured that your third Student Finance England payment will arrive as usual. If you are struggling to pay your rent, there is a government ban on evictions from private rented housing at this time.

Don't Rent Yet is our annual campaign to encourage students not to sign housing contracts for their following year until at least January. Each year the Students' Union and University of Worcester run a joint Housing Fair. This gives students the opportunity to meet landlords and find out about the properties they have on offer, whilst also arranging house viewings. The Housing Fair will not go ahead as usual this January - more information around our alternative 'Housing Day' will be released soon.
