Married international students are advised that it is difficult to obtain suitable accommodation at short notice. Students who propose to bring their family are strongly advised to come alone in the first instance in order to find suitable accommodation. If this is not possible, they should let the Student Accommodation Office know at the earliest possible moment after being informed that they have been accepted by the University.
Queen’s accommodation team has a dedicated helpline to assist international students with their application for accommodation and offer advice on their choice of accommodation. Many students have questions while making these important decisions and our international student help-line will make the process easier to complete. The helpline's email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have applied for a place in Queen's accommodation, met all the deadlines and criteria, but we are unable to offer you a room, you will need to look for a place to live in the private sector. The Students' Union and the University recommend that students seek private sector accommodation through 'SU Lets', the letting agency in the Students' Union.
SU Lets is the ethical lettings agency, which the Students' Union runs in association with local estate agent Morton Pinpoint, that provides high quality accommodation from good landlords. It is the only place that the Students' Union and the University recommend to students for housing in the private rental sector.
The properties on offer have to meet a high-quality 'Accommodation Code' decided by the Union, simple and fair tenancy agreements are provided and deposits are protected.
