Private Sector Accommodation

Whether it’s finding accommodation, problems with your landlord, checking a contract, deposit issues or council tax, we’re here to help or signpost you to the people who can.

Cornwall Studentpad

The Accommodation Office hosts an online database of student accommodation called Cornwall Studentpad.  We work closely with local landlords and agents to offer listings for a wide range of accommodation from shared houses to lodgings.

Our 2023 listings will are now live.

We have also produced a House Hunting Checklist which you may find useful when searching for and viewing properties. 

FX Plus Housemate Finder Facebook Group

In addition to our database we also run a Facebook group, “Falmouth Exeter Plus – Housemate Finder”, to help students who are looking for private sector accommodation get in touch with one another. This might be to form a group with other students, or where an existing group needs another student to fill up a house they are moving into. It can also be used by students who are looking for someone to take over their tenancy.
