We know that Leeds international student population is continuing to grow and that students have long been coming to Leeds from all four corners of the globe. Sugarhouse has been helping to find accommodation for international students for as long as we can remember and we are well aware of the different challenges that may await you whilst studying and living in a new country for the first time. You can find details of the service that we offer to students on our Student Tenant page. We offer a wide choice of accommodation located around the Universities, City Centre and all other popular student areas of Leeds, all of a high standard and with a range of prices and types to suit all tastes and budgets.

Peace of Mind

As “Gold” members of Unipol, and the winner of numerous awards and accolades including “Most Socially Responsible Landlord” by the Universities in Leeds and the national Times Award for “Northern Letting Agents of the Year,”” you can also feel safe in the knowledge that you are in safe hands.

We Speak Your Language

Where language barriers exist, we can often offer translation services and assistance with contract signings. We are also currently working with an Anglo / Chinese company assisting with the relocation and integration of students from Asia, whilst our new website has been designed to offer an automatic translation service into different languages.

House Hunting

We aim to make house hunting as painless as possible. Whether you want to look at purpose built flats in Headingley or giant Victorian terrace properties in Hyde Park then we have the properties, and the advice, to help you. As a managing agent for a large number of properties owned by a wide range of carefully vetted landlords, you'll always get impartial, honest advice on a selection of different properties from different landlords. We want you to find a property that meets your needs, no matter how specific these may be; ask us; we're pretty confident we'll have something that meets your requirements!

Viewings & Enquiries

If you book in for a viewing we'll show you as many properties as we can, we'll drive you round ourselves (for free!) and can even pick you up from your doorstep. You may not have rented a house before but we want you to be excited rather than intimidated. You can easily search for properties online on our new media responsive website or even on our Facebook page which has its own property search feature. You can find us in person in the office, via phone, via e-mail or you can reach us via Twitter and Facebook. We try to be as accessible as possible. There's even free Wi-Fi in our office so you search online or check in on Facebook while you're waiting for a viewing.

Advanced Reservations

For tenants wanting to move straight into a property, we offer the opportunity to reserve and secure properties / rooms viewed online meaning you could walk straight off the plane and into your new home in the same day! Conditions apply for this service; please contact us for details

Help Is At Hand!

If you have any questions at all about areas, rents, tenancy agreements, contracts, or any other matter then please just ask one of our fully trained members of staff. No matter how you trivial you think the query may be just ask us; we guarantee you won't be the first!

Soft Landing

We love Leeds and we want to make your arrival in our city, and in your new home, as enjoyable and as pain free as possible. As such we can help you arrange transfers from the airport, temporary accommodation where necessary and plenty of pointers in terms of things to see and do!
