Private Rented Accommodation in Winchester
Winchester is a thriving University city, with students from the University of Southampton’s Winchester School of Art, the University of Winchester and Sparsholt College. A small but vibrant city, you’ll find plenty of pubs, restaurants and cafes to suit all tastes, from the most lively to laid-back, in addition to shops and a wide variety of cultural and leisure facilities. There are excellent road and rail connections to the rest of the UK and a local network of buses connecting all areas of the city.
The average weekly rent for a room in a shared house in the private sector in Winchester typically costs from around £75-£85 per week, excluding bills such as water, gas and electricity. Remember that you will also need to pay a deposit to secure your property. If you chose to rent through an agency, you may need to pay additional fees on top of that.
If you would prefer to live a little outside Winchester, there are also good transport links to both Eastleigh and Chandler’s Ford, which make these locations an easy commute.
