Changes during the pandemic
Your safety and that of others is our biggest priority. As such, we have adpated, and will continue to adapt, how we deliver events. We strongly urge you to follow us on Twitter and Facebook to keep up to date with our planned virutal events. Holding events virtually will allow us to protect students, accommodation providers and LSH staff, whilst still allowing us to provide important opportunities and support for students.
Virtual find a housemate
These are held via Zoom, and we have already hosted a number of virtual meet-ups to support students seeking accommodation, and those with a spare room for the current 21/22 lettings cycle. For details of our next event, and how to request login details, please click here.
Virtual housing fair
We hosted a virtual housing fair in December 2020, with a follow up virtual fair in March 2021. This was an opportunity to meet registered accommodation providers and chat with them online, view property videos/tours and to research the types of accredited accommodation available to rent for the 21/22 academic year.
We are currently finalising plans for our next housing fair at the end of 2021, and we will update this page and our socal media pages once details are available.
Physical housing fair
In normal circumstances, each year we run a housing fair around late November/early December in time for the launch of properties for the next academic year at the beginning of December. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook to hear information about all our upcoming events!
LSH registered landlords and agents are invited to exhibit at our housing fairs and it’s your chance to meet with them and see what properties they have to offer. LSH staff are also on-hand to give advice and answer any questions. There are also plenty of competitions and FREEBIES on offer.

In person find a housemate meet ups (currently replaced with virtual meet up)
If you need to find others to live with you are encouraged to come along to one of our find a housemate meet ups. These take place regularly throughout the year and we would advise to check our social media pages for updates.
If you are a student with spare rooms in your shared property (must be LSH registered), or want to form a group to then search for a property together, then come along to meet potential tenants. If you are unsure if your landlord/agent is registered with us, you are advised to contact us to check before coming.
We run our housemate meet ups based on student feedback and demand, and if there are still a large number of students looking for housemates, or to fill spare rooms, then we will hold additional meet ups.
You can also use our find a housemate forums on our student message board.
