PAVS is open for requests

The Private Accommodation Viewing is designed to help you make more of an informed choice about properties you can’t view personally

Are you coming to study in Glasgow this September and too far from the city to check out potential private let accommodation? The Students’ Representative Council has a service designed to help you make more of an informed choice about properties that are safe and properly managed.

Private Accommodation Viewing Service (PAVS) is an SRC service that runs each summer to help prevent international students from being defrauded out of deposits for non-existent properties, or from having to live in dangerous or unpleasant accommodation. Specially trained student volunteers can visit the properties you submit via the Private Accommodation Viewing Service (PAVS) request form, though please be aware that the property market moves quickly in the summer months, and we can’t guarantee a viewing will be organised in time before the property is taken.

Armed with a checklist of questions, our student volunteers will arrange a viewing, finding out relevant information that might help you make a decision and return it to as soon as possible

PAVS will be open from 7th July until 31st August and for more helpful information about flat-hunting in Glasgow, please see our Accomodation advice webpages
