10/06/2019

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 4th 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.

Launch of House Hunting

Students were given an early access invitation to view the Unipol website two days before the launch of house hunting on 4th February 2019. The February tabloid will be delivered to students in Halls and off-street houses this week to help them make an informed choice of accommodation

 

The story so far

The site went live on 4th February 2019 and is showing 1387 rooms available for this academic year 2019-2020.  Within the first 3 days of house hunting there were 248 searches carried out with 666 properties viewed on the website.

Throughout February there were 1,345 accommodation searches carried out on the website with 2,895 individual adverts being viewed. March & April  remained steady with 1,804 website searches and 4,280 adverts viewed. May saw 1,064 website searches with 2,253 adverts viewed.  

Unipol had a presence at both the College & University open days which were held in March and will be present at the next ones in June and July.

As expected house hunting slowed in the run up to the Easter break.  Our student survey results showed many students were awaiting completion of exams before starting to look for accommodation.International students usually receive their offers and visa's from July onwards and may start house hunting then.

Survey results also showed that 94.3% would prefer an all inclusive rent, and 88.5% thought it important to choose a Code accredited landlord. Over 42% had not yet considered looking for accommodation, of those who had started looking 100% noted that the Unipol website was easy to use.
