House hunting in Bradford 2018-The Story So Far

16/04/2018

Take your pick of quality student homes available through Unipol

Unipol launched the largest number of accredited bed spaces in one place for the students of Bradford on Monday 5th February. You are able to compare all types of properties in different areas and shortlist your favourites from the comfort of your sofa - our website is fully compatible with smartphones, tablets, laptop and desktops.

House Hunting Launch

Students were given an early access invitation to view the Unipol website two days before the launch of house hunting on 5th February 2018. The February tabloid has been delivered to students in Halls and off-street houses to help them make an informed choice of accommodation.

The story so far

The site went live on 5th February and is showing rooms available for the next academic year. Within the first 4 days of house hunting there were 776 searches carried out with 1,141 properties viewed on the website. Since the start of house hunting up until the 16th April  (a 10 week period) there have been 3,492 property searches carried out on the website with 6,844 adverts viewed.

It is hoped that some students will start house hunting following the Easter break, whilst international students will not receive offers and visa until later in the year.

The website is fully compatible with all tech. In March over 41% of searches were carried out on a mobile phone and 7% were done on a tablet.

We held our annual Housing Fayre for Code accredited landlords on 20th February in Student Central. We also arranged for Unipol advertisements to be displayed on 2 local phone boxes.

Social media promotions will be on-going throughout the year as will Unipol presence at College and University events. 

A new student survey was carried out in February and March, the results showed the following:-

86% wanted to live within minutes of the University.

41% of those surveyed had not yet started house hunting.

59% stated Wifi included was essential with 72% stating bills included were essential or very important to them.

76% were swayed by the quality of the property and 92% said price was a strong factor when choosing accommodation.
