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.

House Hunting for the 2019/2020 academic year will start on 4th February 2019.

The story so far

The site went live on 5th February 2018 and is showing rooms available for this 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 28th November there were 12,647 property searches carried out on the website with  29,503 individual adverts viewed.

As expected many students started house hunting later in the year. Clearing began in August along with A level results whilst international students are still receiving offers and travel visas and are still looking for accommodation. In September there were 1,146 housing searches carried out and 875 in October.

The website is fully compatible with all tech. In September nearly 40% of searches were carried out on a mobile phone and 6% were done on a tablet.

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

A new student survey was carried out October, some of the results are below 

  • 63% of those who responded stated they chose to live in Halls as it seemed the safest option.

  • 82.8% of participants paid a deposit, with 93% advising their rent was bills inclusive.

  • 57.5% of students recognised the Code logo

  • 18% of participants have already started looking for accommodation for the next academic year.
