On Wednesday 30th January 2019, we are bringing you a one-stop-shop for all things housing at the Rent Smart Fair.
Living away from home is a big part of any student’s life, so we want to help make your experience as simple and stress-free as possible. Most students have only just moved into accommodation for this year, but already letting agents are putting the pressure on to sign up for a house for next year. But don’t panic! Brookes Union recommend that you wait until the beginning of semester two before kickstarting your housing search, so the Rent Smart Fair has come at the right time, ready to give you all the advice you need!
Whether you have any housing queries or concerns and want to chat to our team of advisors, or you’re keen to pick up useful tips on home safety/security, or simply want to make sure you don’t receive any unexpected surprises in your housing contract - our Advice team are here to help! Our advisors will answer any of your questions and help you understand your rights and responsibilities under a tenancy agreement, as well as how to deal with problems if they arise!
You’ll also be able to pick up our materials and booklets that outline the process of house hunting, including property searching, moving in and moving out again. The PCSO team and Brookes Securty will be on hand to offer advice on securing your property and staying safe.
Brookes Union’s previous Rent Smart Fairs have proved extremely popular and useful, so be sure not to miss out on the chance to seek advice on those all important housing matters.
Come along to the Rent Smart Fair on Wednesday 30th January 2019, 11am-3pm in the Union Square, JHB - Open to all Oxford Brookes students! The Accommodation team will also be set up in the Forum (11-2) and available to speak about Brookes Lettings and halls for returning students.
See you all there!
