#Student Information

As former students ourselves, we appreciate that renting a property and ‘Living Out’ for the first time can be daunting.

“What bills will I be expected to pay?”
“How do I work out my monthly rent?”
“What are the transport links like for getting to and from the Uni?”
…..and in some cases, ”WHO AM I GOING TO LIVE WITH?!”

There are many questions and choices facing you.

We at Frampton & Roebuck are here to help, not just finding the perfect home for you and your housemates, but with everything that goes with it.

Whether you’re living alone, or as a group, renting a Student Property with Frampton & Roebuck couldn’t be more straight-forward.

With its various University Campus’ & Colleges, Durham is an incredible City to both live, work and study in – and we’re here to help you see in the new term
with as little hassle as possible.

'In the thick of it'

Close to the Colleges of Hild & Bede, and surrounding the City’s busier nightspots, Clubs & Takeaways, the area from Claypath to Gilesgate also has the widest range of rental prices.

"What Will I Be Paying?"


Unless stated specifically on a particular Property, the rental prices are not inclusive of Bills for utilities and broadband/internet. (Any Tenancy made up solely of Student Tenants, would be exempt from Council Tax)


Some of the advertised prices around the City will be listed as a ‘per person per week rent’ (PPPW), and others as ‘per calendar month’ (PCM). Rent with ourselves is
payable monthly.

"Where Do I Sign?"

When we have helped you to find a suitable property, each prospective tenant in the group will be required to pay a Holding Deposit and provide us with the following documents to support their application:

Completed Application Form
Passport or Residency Permit/Visa
Student ID Card
