The Student Agency – an alternative way to find your perfect York student house

In 2014, York University students voted for a student run letting agency due to their negative experience with the already existing letting agencies across York and wanted an alternative. This led to the creation of the Student Agency by Ryan Hill, a university of York student. This student-run letting agency now caters for students at both the University of York and York St John University in their search for off campus housing in the later years of their degrees. Their aims are to make the process of finding a house as easy as possible and to ensure students are getting a more affordable service rather than being met with large fees. Students that have used their service have testified to their success at achieving these aims.

Over the past year, the student agency has formed brilliant relationships with York’s landlords. They view Ryan and his team as very professional and experienced in the field and also comment on their efficiency and focus in terms of their project.

The success of the project has been acknowledged further afield than York students and landlords. The Student agency are finalists in the 2015 Great British Entrepreneur Award for Social Enterprise, the results will be announced in November.
