We provide you with high quality student accommodation with great facilities on the doorstep of The University of Essex – Southend Campus.
We offer you an alternative choice to the University Halls and can save you money
We know there are two sides to every Let and we want to ensure this happens as quickly and as stress free as possible. When you very first register your details with us we will immediately search our database of properties that match your requirements and you will be able to view these straight away without leaving the comfort of your own home.
Peak Property believe in listening to your requirements, and unlike some agents will not force on you unwanted viewings taking up your valuable time looking at property which is not right for you.
When to start looking and forming a group
Students who occupy the halls for their first year normally begin searching for their second year accommodation based outside the halls in December. This provides you with a couple of months from course commencement to make friends and form a group of 5-6 people which is the optimum size to rent a complete house together.
The best houses go early so it is important not to delay so that you have plenty of choice and can stay as a group.
Savvy first year students can choose to take a room in a house share instead of occupying the halls and thereby save money from the beginning of their course. Due to late acceptance on courses, we often have individual rooms remaining within house shares where you can join a group even during the Summer.
Choosing your property
All our Student House Shares are within a 15 Minute Walk to the University and some of them are located even closer to the University than the Halls. You will not require a car.
Rents vary depending on room sizes, facilities offered, and location. You can decide whether you wish to be on the doorstep of the University and pay slightly higher rent or a 15 minute walk away and pay lower rent. The minimum tenancy length varies between each property between 11 and 12 months. All our available properties are listed on our website.
All students require a working UK based guarantor earning a minimum of £10,000pa and with no County Court Judgements or Bankruptcy. This is normally a parent.
All rents include Electric and Gas with a very generous fair usage clause of £50 per person per room, Internet (Wi-Fi), Water and a Communal TV Licence*.
