It is possible to use our website without providing any personal data. However, we may automatically collect certain information about you when you use our website, including by our use of "cookies" (see below), such as the IP address of your computer and the dates and times of your visits.
In some areas of our website we may ask you for personal data, such as your name, address and e-mail details, that will enable us to make your site visit a more rewarding experience for you and/or to contact you after your visit. Examples of this might be where you complete an online form asking for a copy of a prospectus or to book a place on an open day with us, where you ask for information about a job vacancy, or where you subscribe to an online newsletter. In some other areas of our website, where you can register for a newsletter or download a PDF, we will ask you for more detailed information about yourself.
The core functionality of Studentpads is provided through the website at www.letsuni.org, and includes accommodation searching and message boards for students to communicate with one another about accommodation, backed up by lots of information on accommodation-related topics; accommodation providers can use the service to promote their properties.
The property finding functionality is not 'live' on the site all year round, to discourage students from look for their housing too early in the academic year. However, the Information Guides are available all-year-round, and we encourage students to access them whenever they need to.
The service has at its core a drive to improved conditions in student accommodation. We will achieve this by working with existing standards, such as the Accreditation Scheme, and educating students about the benefits of picking accommodation that meets these standards.
We recognise that landlords and other accommodation providers are doing so as a business, and by encouraging students to select standards-compliant accommodation we will be making a strong business case for landlords to meet the standards.of students, you can still book a single room as part of a flatshare with other fellow students. We will try to match you with suitable flatmates at your discretion.
