House hunting for 2024/25? Properties in Leeds and Nottingham are now live -find out more
From 1st year to postgraduate, whatever stage of the student journey they are at, Unipol can provide high quality and safe accommodation options.
As a not-for-profit charity, Unipol specialises in providing houses for students who are not adequately catered for in the private rented sector. Family housing is available to students with children living with them, whether they are lone parents, co-habiting or living in an extended family. We have 5 large family developments in Leeds with a mixture of 2 - 3 bedroom flats and in addition, over 30 houses in the community for families of 1 - 4 children. All available properties are displayed on this website, so you can contact us directly if you see an advert. Many properties are occupied by older students on postgraduate courses and some tenants stay for several years, therefore properties can become vacant at any time of the year.
Its August, you are just getting your A-level results and you need to find suitable 1st year accommodation in Leeds, Bradford or Nottingham - Unipol can help
We specialise in providing a wide range of shared properties for students in the most popular areas of the cities, with a focus on good quality and being able to offer a range of rents to suit all budgets . From luxury city centre apartments, to traditional small halls in the community or large houses for 16 people down to a cosy 2 bed shared house for good friends, you should be able to find your perfect home with Unipol whether you are in your 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th year undergraduate course. Shared living is almost always cheaper than that cost of living alone.
Unipol have a range of shared flats and houses with rooms to rent individually that 'Year out' or students searching without a group can rent easily. This allows you to secure accommodation without the pressure and potential politics of finding a group of friends who you actually want to live with. These properties are usually tailored to a particular group type once the first room lets to avoid clashes with the different stages of student life and they are generally fully inclusive of all bills, making it easy to just move in and get on with student life. Alternatively, if you would prefer to live alone, Unipol also has a number of bedsits or self-contained flats, so there is plenty of choice if your budget can stretch a bit higher.
Unipol understand what it is like coming to a new city, not knowing where you will be living or who you will be living with, so we have a selection of suitable properties that we think postgraduates, mature and international students may like. These properties are let on an individual basis, they have lockable doors and usually have double beds and are generally quieter buildings, in convenient locations, not far from the place of study and they do allow you to meet new people and make friends. If you don’t wish to share and would prefer a peace and quiet of living alone, we have plenty of bedsits, 1 bed self-contained houses and flats in a range of popular areas within easy reach of the main Universities.
Quite often romance blossoms at University and there is a wish to step away from some of the challenges of shared living. Uniquely we offer very good value accommodation for couples who are either both studying or one person in the partnership is studying. These are mostly 1 bedroom self contained properties, but occasionally they can be 2 beds.
Unipol have a small number of mainly washing facility adapted properties. If you would like to discuss your special requirements with us further, please contact our Tenancy Support Officer.
Unipol offer short term summer lets in a selection of city centre developments in Leeds & Bradford. The let is usually from 1st July until 31st August for 2 full months, so in some cases a shorter 1 month let may be possible. Fully inclusive rent in city centre locations.
Unipol have a very small selection of properties that have been chosen as most suitable for non-students, in popular residential locations, close to shops and local amenities and making the most of the vibrancy of Leeds and all the city has to offer.
For parents, the process of a child moving away from the family home can be difficult on many levels, both emotional, financial and in practical terms. A particular issue many parents face is how to pitch the level of their involvement in decisions that their child is making. With this change of legal status, many organisations and agencies and representatives of them will no longer automatically provide you with personal information or discuss your child’s affairs with you, including Unipol
