The majority of the University of Gloucestershire's 9,000 students live in private sector accommodation across Cheltenham and Gloucester.

The housing support team is here to meet the housing requirements and expectations of students and introduce them to good quality local properties.

The university prides itself on offering good-quality housing and runs a list of university-approved houses available to all students at the university.

Registration process

New landlords

To register with us, new landlords will need to complete our online registration process. Please see the guide below which features step-by step instructions on this process.

Please read through our landlords' guide fully before completing this process.

Existing landlords

If you have previously registered with us, your property will already be online. Please use the guide below to help you login and create a new advert.

Once you have completed these processes, the Housing Support Team will review before advertising. Please note that to be able to advertise your property you must provide valid gas and electrical safety certificates via email along with paying the annual £70 registration fee per property (see the below Registration Fee section.) Also note that any new properties will require an inspection (inspections will not take place until all registration processes are complete.)

Registration fee

This year, landlords will have three options for paying the registration fee:

  1. Via the online shop. You will need to register an account the first time you use this service. Once the payment has been made you will be provided with the payment reference number, which we would ask you insert on the last page of the registration form.
  2. Paying by cheque made payable to the ‘University of Gloucestershire’ and returned to the following address: Accommodation, Student Services, Bodley Building, Francis Close Hall, Cheltenham, GL50 4AZ.
  3. Paying by cash directly in the accommodation office. A receipt will be provided.

Please note that no paperwork will be processed until payment has been received.

We will email landlords once we have completed your paperwork and your advert is live. At this point we will request that landlords log on to the system and check their adverts, informing us within five working days if they would like any changes made. Alternatively, you can make changes directly on the site.
