Cost of renting privately
The cost of renting will depend on the size, location and condition of a house. A room in a student house will cost about:
- £450 per month in Southampton
- £550 per month in Winchester
Extra costs to consider
As well as your rent, you'll usually have to pay for:
- gas, water and electricity
- internet connection
- Television Licence
- extra television services, if needed
- phone services, if needed
You'll normally split these costs between everyone living in the house. Some landlords or letting agents might include some of these services in the cost of your rent. It's a good idea to ask about this when viewing a house and make sure you understand what you need to pay before you sign a contract. Some of these costs are included if you choose to live in University accommodation.
