We have been working with the University of Bristol for many years now and they have seen first hand how we help thousands of students find and secure the property they want to rent.

Renting in Bristol is already competitive enough. Adding the issue of not having a qualifying guarantor is an unnecessary extra worry. burden. Working together with the University of Bristol has meant that  we can provide any University of Bristol students that apply with a fast and secure way to secure their property with a rent guarantor at 8 monthly instalments of £30 or a flat fee of £225.

Not only can Bristol students benefit from the Bristol University guarantor service, but so can the Bristol University staff!
