STUDENTS have moved into the first accredited student accommodation for University Campus Suffolk, Great Yarmouth.
A nine-bedroom house just two minutes' walk from the Southtown campus is the first student property to join the scheme launched in the summer to guarantee higher education students high quality accommodation.
The first students have already moved into the house, which has a communal dining room, lounge and kitchen, with more set to follow.
UCS appealed to local landlords to join its scheme to give students and their parents peace of mind when they move away from home to study for the first time.
Sue Chittenden, higher education advisor at UCS Great Yarmouth, said: “This is the start and hopefully other landlords will come along and join the scheme so our students can be guaranteed high quality accommodation while they study here.”
The aim is to build a portfolio of rooms, flats and houses for students applying for the expanding range of higher education qualifications - including foundation and full degrees - being offered in Yarmouth.
