Code of Practice
Accommodation Services has a commitment to provide quality accommodation and
excellent customer service. Good practice guidance is provided by Codes of
Practice.
For University halls of residence the Student Accommodation Code (SAC) has been
developed by Universities UK and GuildHE. The Code protects students’ rights to
safe, good quality accommodation, wherever they are studying, and makes sure
they get the best out of their time living in university or college residences. It
outlines everything students can expect from their accommodation as well as their
responsibilities as tenants.
For private sector halls of residence there is the Accreditation Network UK (ANUK)
Code of Practice for Student Accommodation Managed by Undertakings Subject to
HMO Licensing.
