Private Sector Accommodation Database
The Accommodation Office maintains an online private sector accommodation database which includes a list of properties in the town and local area. This includes a search facility for you to look for various types of private accommodation.
Details of available properties are maintained and the properties are checked to ensure that they comply with a number of necessary standards such as HMO Licensing, Rent Smart Wales and electrical and gas safety requirements. Landlords are required to re-apply for registration of their properties on an annual basis with the Accommodation Office.
Please note that properties included on the database are not inspected by the Accommodation Office.
The list of private accommodation is intended only as a guide for prospective student tenants to enable them to decide whether or not to make further enquiries with prospective landlords. Neither the University nor any member of University staff has any authority to make or give any representations, recommendations or warranty whatsoever as regards to the properties listed or otherwise and in particular cannot guarantee that such properties comply with current Fire Regulations, Building Regulations, the Planning Acts, Health and Safety legislation and Licensing Schemes or whether rent levels are accurate.
Students can satisfy themselves about the status of property by telephoning Ceredigion County Council, Department of Environmental Services and Housing:. Prospective student tenants should satisfy themselves by inspection or otherwise as to the adequacy of the accommodation offered. Students living in private sector accommodation are requested to exercise their rights to have sight of the relevant Gas Safety Certificate (prior to taking up a tenancy) and sight of the relevant License (if applicable). Students are advised to be sure that they can meet contractual obligations before tenancy agreements are signed.
