Accommodation

Rental accommodation

The University of Cambridge has a dedicated Accommodation Service to help you find both short- and long-term accommodation in Cambridge.

Visit their website, contact them on accommodation.service@admin.cam.ac.uk, or drop in to see them at Kellet Lodge on Tennis Court Road to find out how they can assist you in finding accommodation.

They provide listings of both temporary accommodation for short visits to Cambridge, and long-term homes to rent.

They provide access to both University-owned properties, and properties owned by private landlords that are trusted by the Accommodation Service. This includes houses and flats, as well as rooms in Colleges and shared houses.

 

Council tax & utility bills 

Once you have moved into your new home, you’ll need to let the local council know that you have taken on the tenancy, so that council tax bills can be issued in your name. You can do this online and find more information here.

You will need to do the same with your utilities providers. For water bills, this will be Cambridge Water. You can generally choose whichever provider will offer you the best deal for your electricity, gas (if applicable), and internet. 

You will also need to purchase a TV Licence if you watch or record live TV or watch programmes on BBC iPlayer – you can do this online and find more information here.
