Rent a Room Scheme

Are you worried about the cost of living crisis?

Are you looking for somewhere to live?

Do you want to expand your social capital?

Then here is a fantastic opportunity for the community to come together and help Bolton. Have you considered the Rent a Room Scheme? It can let you have a tax-free income.

Under the scheme, a single person taking on a lodger can earn up to £7,500 per year (tax-free) to help with the current cost of living crisis.

This year the University of Bolton has a threefold increase in international and postgraduate students this year, which means more international arrivals wanting accommodation.

The University of Bolton would like to ask the local community to consider taking on a lodger under the government's rent-a-room scheme.

If you are a student at the University seeking accommodation or indeed interested in offering accommodation under this scheme, please complete the form on this page, and the University will contact you by matching providers with those seeking accommodation.

It’s a brilliant way of helping your community and the benefits of this scheme are:

1. The opportunity for cultural enrichment for you and your family.

2. Earning tax-free income to help with cost of living.

3. Making new friends.

4. Having places to visit overseas and around the UK.

5. Expanding your network.

6. Learning a new language for you and your family and offering them great social capital.

*Any agreements made under the rent-a-room scheme is between the person offering the accommodation and the student agreeing to accept the accommodation. The University, its staff and partners will not be held liable in any way whatsoever.
