UoB Property Search is the University of Birmingham’s official off-campus property search engine for private sector housing, fuelled by StudentPad.

As a member of the platform, you’ll be a part of our recognised private housing community and have direct access to our students as a result. You’ll be able to advertise to an engaged audience and access more students than ever before, while having opportunities to gain valuable industry insights and support from others in the community through exclusive landlord forums and newsletters.


Can anyone advertise on UoB Property Search?

No – only members of our Lettings Membership Scheme can advertise on the platform. This is to ensure that our students only see properties from landlords/letting agents in our trusted community living community.

How do I advertise my property on UoB Property Search?

To create a listing on UoB Property Search, you’ll first need to create an account. Once you’re all set up, you’ll need to:

  • provide full details about your property and attach clear, high-quality images
  • provide a copy of a HMO license (if applicable)
  • provide information about your tenancy deposit protection scheme
  • confirm all legal requirements have been met with renting out a property
  • include your LMS membership in your listing.

If you fail to provide any of the above, your listing will not be approved.

How much does it cost?

It’s free to advertise on UoB Property Search until July 2024. We’ll update our charges page with any changes after this period.
