House Hunting 2017 - the story so far






House Hunting Launch

With over 3,500 students given an early access invitation to view the Unipol website on 20th January 2017, the site saw 29,996 adverts viewed from 6,225 property searches.  This activity continued into the official launch date with a further 9,720 property searches conducted and 34,260 adverts viewed. The first four days of house hunting saw 30,151 property searches and 134,453 advert views.

The story from January 2017

The site remains busy with 168,686 property searches and 644,869 adverts viewed so far in 2017. Since the start of house hunting on 21st January there have been 94,529 sessions with 51,411 being unique.

House hunting 2017 started strongly and it is expected there will be a further small surge in interest across the summer as many students will be looking to secure accommodation before September 2017. July has seen an increase in activity, predominantly from postgraduates and International students.  A number of undergraduate students will be waiting until their return in September before finding their next home, not wanting to pay rent over the summer period.

Admissions 2017

Activity over August is expected to be strong as the University of Leeds sees an increase in applications (up over 10%) following being named 'University of the Year 2017' by The Times and The Sunday Times' Good University Guide.  It is difficult to predict at this stage how applications will translate in to admissions but a conservative estimate would see the University grow by up to 2% on 2016.  Leeds Beckett University has show further decreases in applications but this does not mean that their admissions will fall accordingly.  Firm conclusions cannot be drawn until later September 2017.
