Private Rented Accommodation

Many of our students studying at ACM live in private rented accommodation within a few miles of each of our campuses.

As a guide, average rents tend to be between £500 and £650 (excluding bills) per month per person in Private Rented Accommodation. This is all dependent on campus location and services included.

There are also a number of Letting Agents across Guildford/Birmingham/London with a selection of student housing available. Being proactive and clear on what you are looking for is very important when contacting agents and arranging viewings.

Most Letting Agents will require you to be in a group before you register therefore it will be extremely useful to join the campus specific ACM Accommodation Student Group on Facebook (these are closed groups for students and for housing posts only). 

In these groups you will be able to meet fellow Freshers, current students looking for housemates, discuss housing options and generally get ready for September.   As houses are sent to us by Private Landlords and Letting Agents they are also posted on this site.  

April each year will also herald the start of our Accommodation Networking Events which are held on a Saturday and dependant on how many private rental enquiries we receive (please keep an eye out for an email/post on the facebook page to let you know of up and coming dates). This is an ideal chance for you to network face to face and it is a lot of fun.

All applications for these events should be confirmed by email to as there can sometimes be limited spaces.

These events are a great way for you to network with fellow students looking to meet prospective, future housemates in order that the group formed can then sign on to letting agents to find a house together.
