If you are looking for private rented accommodation (houses/flats/apartment) in the Wolverhampton area, you can search the Local Authority list via www.rentwithconfidence.org.uk where you will find many different types of property listed. As not all landlords will let to students, when searching for a property, be sure to check that students are mentioned in the property advert.
Rent with Confidence is Wolverhampton City Council's "star rating" scheme for landlords. We would recommend that any property above 3* should be considered (ideally 4* or 5* depending on what you can afford) as this shows that the property has met certain standards we would consider "good" quality.
When house hunting, remember;
BE REALISTIC of what you can get for your budget
VIEW the property (inside and out) before you agree to anything
DON'T PANIC or rush into anything, there really is a surplus of good quality accommodation in the area
Since 1 December 2014 your landlord has been required to check the immigration status of anyone requesting to rent from them. This is usually as simple as taking a copy of your passport and/or biometric card so please be aware that you may be asked to produce this for ID. You can find more information on the Right to Rent: Immigration Checks by Landlords from the NUS site.
