We know the importance of good accommodation to students so we've created TUSU Happy House. It's a campaign to ensure you're receiving the best possible service from private landlords. All landlords who advertise properties through the SU must be independently accredited, there's full information about our criteria for advertising with the SU here. If, as a student, you feel you are not receiving the service you expect or need further information or advice – contact one of our professional Student Support Advisers in SU Student Support (SUSS). Pop in to SUSS (1st floor of the SU) Mon to Fri 10am-4pm, call 01642 342247 or E-mail SUSS to make an appointment. Student Support Advisers help with issues including repairs, problems with housemates and rent arrears/ deposits.
TUSU Happy House targets students, landlords and letting agents* to ensure the best possible standard accommodation. Happy House is a campaign led by your Vice-President Welfare to ensure good quality, affordable housing for all students and to help them address any issues they may have while living in Teesside.
There is also info and advice on how to deal with issues with fellow housemates or their landlords and tips on getting deposits back at the end of a contract. Plus...new for 2016/17...House Match is a great new service for both students and landlords/ letting agents! Visit the dedicated web page or contact SUSS for full info.
