The Student Accommodation Code

Student Accommodation Code logo

At The University of York we are committed to providing our students with a high standard of accommodation. We understand how important a safe and comfortable living environment is to successful university and college life, and fully support The Student Accommodation Code.

Developed by UUK and GuildHE, The Code is designed to ensure that students have the right to safe, good quality accommodation, wherever they are studying, and to make sure they get the best out of their time living in university or college residences. 

The Code outlines important details about our responsibilities as a university or further education college, including for example, fire and safety requirements, repairs and maintenance procedures, health and wellbeing responsibilities and details on the student complaints procedure. It also provides full details on the tenants’ responsibilities.
