Rent Guarantor scheme

Student page

Help if you need a UK-based guarantor to rent accommodation

This scheme helps students who have no family living in the UK who can act as a guarantor for private accommodation.

To be eligible you must have

  • No debt to Goldsmiths
  • Satisfactory academic standing
  • Sufficient financial backing to maintain rent payments

The guarantee covers rent only.

It covers a rental period that matches your current enrolment session, usually September to September or January to January.

Applications are currently closed

Places on the scheme have now been filled for the academic year 17/18.

Should you have any housing or accommodation issues, you could speak with University of London Housing Services.

Further information will be released in summer 2018 for our new students.

Repaying rent

If Goldsmiths is required to pay rent on your behalf, this amount will be added to your Goldsmiths account. You need to repay this within four months.

Please note any failure to repay will mean that your debt is passed to our credit control and your access to university services may be suspended temporarily.
