Private Sector Accommodation

The Accommodation team is here to provide help, advice and support to students in finding the right place to live and to assist with issues and problems when living in the private sector. 

We work closely with local landlords and lettings agents and run an online database of accommodation in the private sector as well as drop-ins, accommodation fairs and house-hunting sessions throughout the year. 

Please contact our Private Sector Liaison Officer using the details below if you have any questions about providing or finding private sector accommodation;

Telephone: 01326 253 741


In person: Visit Glasney Lodge on the Penryn Campus to speak to our Private Sector Liaison Officer or a member of the Accommodation Team. Monday – Friday 9.00am – 5.00pm.
