Guardian schemes

The Guardian Scheme is a relative newcomer to the accommodation mix.  Agencies such as Camelot rent out empty or unused spaces on behalf of their owner, until they need the space again.

Rents are often lower than average for the area; however they can move you to another place with 2 weeks’ notice, which is only half the standard notice period for eviction. They will endeavour to find another place for you to live but cannot guarantee this. Read the contract carefully before signing and talk to the Students' Union Accommodation Advisor.
