Notice Board

We have an Accommodation notice board in the Advice Centre where you can check for details of flats, rooms and shared accommodation available to rent.  Anyone who has accommodation to advertise can use this space including students looking for a flat mate, University halls of residence and private landlords. If you would like to use this service please contact a Student Adviser as all advertisements need to be GCU Students' Association approved  before going on to the notice board.

Contact a Student Adviser for further advice.

DISCLAIMER - We accept accommodation information on behalf of individuals in good faith. Whilst we will make every effort to ensure that the information displayed is accurate, we can take no responsibility for individual statements. You are therefore advised to check out all the relevant details thoroughly before entering into any agreements.
