Part-time, couples and families, and private sector

We can offer assistance with accommodation listings and advice to help you secure suitable housing in the private rented sector in Winchester.

Please use the Winchester Student Pad website to help with your search for accommodation. This site contains local listings of houses and rooms in and around Winchester and is administrated by the University of Winchester's Landlord Forum. It also has a message board to allow students to advertise their rooms or to advertise their need for a room.

A password is required to access the search results. To obtain this, please send an email to  and include your Winchester Reference Number / Username (the seven digit number given in all Winchester correspondence).

If you need any more help or have any questions, please contact us 

Self-contained flats

Students within this category can apply for a Flat at point of application as there is a Flat option in the online system. This then means you don’t have other preference choices.  We will normally allocate to families first then couples and apply the ‘first applied, first allocated’ approach where possible.  We do apply a level of needs-based assessment to these applications and all allocations are subject to availability of a suitable Flat.

Once you have submitted your application, you will receive an email to confirm the application has been received by Student Housing Services. If you do not receive an email within 7 days, please contact us as this may mean that your application has not come through to the University.
