Housing and Rent

This year your 2018-2019 Officer team is leading a campaign on RENT!


Whether you live in a flat, a house, or halls, your living situation is so important to a healthy and happy life at university. Knowing that rent prices and safe housing is a key concern for most students, your 2018-2019 elected Officer team is taking on the big question of how to improve the student living experience.


Our campaign aim is to help students have accommodation that is safe, affordable, and appropriate for them.


We hope to achieve this aim in a variety of ways, from lobbying Anglia Ruskin University and the Cambridge/Chelmsford city councils to make some key changes to student rental experiences to hosting a Find a Flatmate event.

We are excited to make some real change for ARU students! Keep checking back on this page to see updates on our campaign, or follow your officers on Facebook: find their contact details here.

Our Rent Survey is now closed! The survey was open from the 5th of November, 2018 to the 7th of January, 2019. 

We had an amazing response. Thank you to all the students who filled it out and keep an eye out for the headlines coming out of the data!
