Helping our Students Find Homes – Not Just Houses

Hi, we’re SUHomes. We know that renting your first house can be stressful and confusing. But don’t worry we’re here to make everything as simple as possible.

As part of the SU, we work exclusively with our Essex student community to help find homes you'll love. And we've been doing it for years - no one gets student homes better than us.

We offer a huge range of accommodation off campus – so you can be confident we'll help find a home you're looking for – from room only, studios, and up to 7 bedroom homes.

We ensure the quality across our range of SU Homes, with our premium properties awarded our stamp of approval Quality Mark.

And it couldn't be easier to find us, our office is located in the heart of our Colchester Campus.
