Conditions of Use
This service is intended to provide an introduction to available accommodation. Descriptions given are for guidance only and full information should be given by the owner.
Although we try to view a number of properties listed with us and can often clarify the details of individual houses/flats and their location, properties on our database are generally not viewed/approved by us and we advise against signing a binding contract to take a tenancy in a property that has not been viewed. If possible we would advise that you either visit Cambridge ahead of your stay to secure housing, or arrange for someone in Cambridge to contact us on your behalf and then view properties for you.
If this proves impractical, we would recommend that you consider booking into a hotel or guesthouse for the first few nights of your stay and visit our office as soon as possible after arrival. It is possible to obtain accommodation at short notice.
The Accommodation Service reserves the right to suspend an individual's account where deemed necessary. Accounts that are subject to complaint are automatically suspended while the complaint is investigated.
Accommodation Service members of staff have the right to work in a safe environment. All service users are expected to treat members of staff and other service users with respect, refraining from abusive or intimidating behaviour, unlawful discrimination or harassment.
