Love where you live!


Plymouth is a fantastic city to be a student. The University of Plymouth campus is conveniently located in the heart of the city, close to all of the shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. The stunning Hoe, Barbican and Waterfront are within walking distance of most student properties for you to enjoy. If you wish to venture further afield for a day trip, you can take public transport to Dartmoor and some of the local beaches.

This really is a unique place to live and study!

Living in the community


The housing areas around the main campus are homes to students, families, elderly residents and young working professionals.  Plymouth is a lively and lovely city, so make the most of living in our vibrant town, whilst being respectful to neighbours and the surrounding community.

Be a good neighbour

We all want to live where our neighbours are courteous and thoughtful.  The NUS has some useful guidance on where to start!

When is ‘Bin Day’?

Check when the waste and recycling collection is due for your street/ property.

Staying Safe in your home

Gas Safety – if your property has any gas appliance, make sure you see the current gas safety record.  It is a legal requirement that the landlord has all appliances checked on an annual basis by a gas safe registered engineer.

It is good practice for a landlord to provide a carbon monoxide detector within the property where there is any gas appliance.  We recommend a battery operated unit unless the boiler is located in a tenant’s bedroom, where we would then recommend that the carbon monoxide unit is mains linked.

Fire Safety – Always ensure that your property has a mains linked smoke detection system in place, with a heat detector located in the kitchen.  The landlord should also provide a fire blanket that is wall mounted in the kitchen space.  If fire extinguishers are wall mounted on each level of the property, the landlord will go through a fire risk assessment at the start of the tenancy.
