University Housing Fair
St James Forum at University Housing Fair
Thanks to the Guild of Students, Forum Steering Group members were able to attend the highly successful University Housing Fair. What an interesting event and a unique opportunity to observe the student housing market place. Landlords, both large and small, independent or accredited, were present with the details of their properties to let. We also met up with Unipol – the organisation the Guild of Students is using to inspect and accredit properties. And of course there were sales staff from the large purpose built blocks and some high street letting agents – not so many of the latter as some agents had, we were told, already let all their properties for the 2014/15 academic year!
We were present for a number of reasons:
To let students living in St James this or next year know about the Forum
To make contact with letting agents and let them know that the Foum and Residents’ Associations in St James are unhappy about the forest of To Let and Let By signs
To make contact with small landlords in St James to encourage them to take up associate membership to receive our mailings
