What is Home Run?
Home Run is the only official housing service that is dedicated to helping UEA students find good quality & affordable private sector accommodation in Norwich. The service is owned and run by UEA Student's Union and is partnered with University of East Anglia and Marks out of Tenancy, a review platform where students can leave honest reviews of their landlords (https://www.marksoutoftenancy.com/).
Our expectation is all of our accredited partners uphold our ethical and moral values, we wish to empower our student tenants and prepare them for renting in the private sector long after they have graduated and moved on from higher education. Accredited partners should take a sensitive and measured approach when dealing with tenant-related issues, we believe this is vital in ensuring a positive working relationship between the landlord/agency and tenant.
Home Run ensures that students are in the best position possible when looking to secure a home and offers the largest listing of student housing in the region.
If you are a current/prospective UEA student and would like to take a look at our housing list, or other services the website has to offer, then please visit: https://www.homerunstudentpad.co.uk/Accommodation
Private sector landlords can benefit from accreditation by committing to our set of minimum standards, in return we offer advertising for accredited properties on the Home Run Website. The Home Run housing list is only accessible to UEA students, allowing our accredited landlords a unique marketing opportunity not available through other property websites. We also reccommend Home Run to all UEA students that approach the SU with property enquiries, making it the first choice for many students searching for private sector accommodation within Norwich.
For landlords we charge £40 (inc VAT) per property and ask that all Home Run landlords accredit their entire portfolio in accordance with our Minimum Standards. Accreditation periods for landlords runs from January to January of each year.
If you are a landlord interested in Home Run accreditation and joining our 300+ landlord members, then please contact us to receive an application pack: [email protected].
