Durham University Rent Guarantor Scheme

Durham University is now working with a leading provider of rent guarantor services to enable students to access private sector accommodation where a UK guarantor is required. Whilst many students will ask parents or other relatives to act as UK guarantor for their tenancy, this is not always an option for some, particularly overseas students.

Housing Hand is the UK’s largest rent guarantor service and they guarantee thousands of tenancies across the UK. Housing Hand work directly with Universities, Landlords, Letting Agents and private Purpose Built Student Accommodation providers.

Information for how to apply for the scheme can be found in the Housing Hand Application Process.

As a Durham University student, you can now access Housing Hand’s services at a specially negotiated rate that can be spread across monthly payments.

If you are a care experienced student or are estranged, you can still apply for the service without the requirement of a guarantor. Housing Hand will assist and guide you through this process.
