Ready To Rent



Ready to Rent
is our landmark programme of training for student renters, equipping students’ unions with all the tools they need to support students to have a successful time in the private rented sector. As part of this, a range of resources have been created, some of which can be used to support students regardless of whether they have completed the training. These include a series of engaging animated videos and a house-hunting checklist. You can download these below.
