Housing advice for students
These pages aim to provide answers to some of the common housing related problems faced by students.
If you need further advice, call Shelter Cymru’s expert housing advice helpline on 0345 075 5005. You could also email our housing advice team, or, if you prefer, visit advice near you to find a local Shelter Cymru advice surgery where you can talk to someone in person. In some areas you may also be able to speak to our Shelter Cymru Live advisers online, by live chat and by webcam.
If you are a young person, you could also take a look at Housemate – an online resource produced by Shelter Cymru’s Education Service. It provides lots of practical advice and can support you make the right decisions about your housing.
