information for students
If you are a new or returning student looking for a place to live, we can help you find housing with accredited and reputable landlords! Unlike the high street agencies, our service for students is completely free of charge with NO administration fees.
We understand your needs as a student and are here to help you find a safe and comfortable place to stay during your time at the University of Essex.
finding a place to live
Your first stop should be www.essexstudentpad.co.uk. This website is regularly updated with all the properties that become available. You can search among the list of properties as per your requirements to find something that will suit you perfectly!
We have a range of properties that will suit you if living on your own as a single student, if you are a couple, a family or a group of friends looking to live together. All the properties that we advertise on the website have been accredited by the Colchester Borough Council so you are guaranteed to get good quality accommodation.
If you cannot find a property at the above website that suits your needs, then please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org stating what you are looking for (bedrooms, rent, location, special requirements) and we’ll get back to you!

cleaning, gardening & handyman services
We know you don't want to bother with the hassle of cleaning or cutting the grass, but if it means you can get your deposit back at the end of your lease it's worth taking care of your student house.
If it's a weekly tidy you're looking for, or a SPARKLE clean before your landlord comes round to inspect, we can help. Even if your house is not leased by StudentLets we have cleaning services available for students at great discounted prices.
And if you just need someone who can help you change a lightbulb, bleed a radiator or quickly fix a wall (we've all seen what can happen from a house party!) then we can help. Just call us on 01206 878978.
storage and removal van services
If your lease has run out and you're looking for somewhere to store your belongings over the summer we can offer students a 50% off discounted rate at Big Yellow Storage. Prices start from as little as £10.50 per week.
Just visit BigYellow.co.uk or call 01206 854400 and quote the code 'ESSEX' for your 50% saving*.
If you're in need to move all your stuff back home or from one student house to the next we can help with that too! Just call Colchester Relocations on 01206 230193 or 07931 703244, again quoting the code 'ESSEX' for your student saving.
*You will need to show your student card when moving
chauffeur driven service
Need a lift to your viewings? Unlike other estate agents, we won't let you walk in the rain! As StudentLets are here to look after students, we'll offer you a chauffeur driven service to see your potential properties.
Just call Ruth at StudentLets to book your viewings on 01206 878978.
