Accommodation

Your safety and comfort are important. When looking for your home-from-home for your Year Abroad, always follow these guidelines:

  • Take a friend with you to view any property

  • Make sure you meet any future housemates or flatmates before you decide to share with them

  • Read any rental agreement carefully before signing and make sure you know how and when any deposit will be refunded

  • Check the means of escape and fire precautions before signing a contract.
