Find a house close to your college or university

university of oxford Find a house close to your college or universityWe have recently added the ability to find out how far from your university or college of choice,  the house you are looking to rent / purchase will be.

We have long included schools to make those family choices a little easier, but as houseswift also specialises in student lets, and rooms and lodgings, we didn’t want to leave any one out.

Don’t forget if you use the map search, you can also show various points of interest such as gyms, supermarkets, tube lines and train stations., We will soon also be upgrading this functionality further, to show you how affluent the area you are looking to live in really is, and what amenities will be available before you have to scope the surrounding areas manually.

Please if you have liked our site, we encourage you to share it to your friends via word of mouth, facebook or other social media sites, we offer our functionality for free, and rely on you to help us grow.
