Published: 27 April 2011

The School of Law Housing Clinic has been nominated for the Student Unions Excellence in Volunteering Award. The group will be attending the awards ceremony on 4th May 2011.

The University of Southampton's pro bono housing clinic was launched in 2009. A law school initiative put into action by a group of second and third year law students with the support of a specialist housing law barristers from 12 College Place Chambers. The service involves providing legal advice through monthly clinic sessions and email contact. Through its ‘Citizens' Advice' approach, the clinic offers free consultations to any student, within the university, requiring advice on private rented accommodation. Problems with student accommodation are frequent and every year students come across a broad range of housing issues, often being at a loss as to resolving them.  The Housing Clinic assists with all student issues relating to the private rented sector: from landlord disputes and poor living conditions to problems with fellow tenants and deposit repayments.
