Landlords and agents you can trust

PAL logoIf you would prefer to live off-campus, it is very important that you choose PAL accredited accommodation.

This accreditation scheme has been created in partnership between the University of Hertfordshire and Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council. It is a voluntary scheme which recognises Landlords and Letting Agents who provide safe and well-maintained private accommodation.

The University is only allowed to recommend PAL accredited properties to Students, as these Landlords and Letting Agents are adhering to a specific Code of Practice, and we want to ensure Students find good quality homes within the Borough.
