Demand for student accommodation is so high that some are struggling to find a place to live before starting their studies, data by StudentTenant has revealed.
Demand is the highest in the University of Exeter, followed by Reading, Bath and Bath Spa.
Danielle Cullen, managing director at StudentTenant, said: “Housing for students should be a priority.
“These pupils have worked hard to prepare for their education and to arrive without a place to sleep is worrisome.
“With many universities still seeing high levels of demand for student property this far into the term, it doesn’t bode well for those looking to arrive next year.”
