As Backstage Academy grows, so does the demand for good quality student accommodation providers in Wakefield. We have been working hard creating our new Landlord and Tenant Charter for 2016/17 academic year, and encouraging more local estate agents to provide accommodation for our students going forward. All Backstage Academy approved estate agents and landlords have agreed to sign the charter, so this is great news for our students.

Most of our students have found that living in central Wakefield is the best option. With just a short train ride to Moorthorpe station, which is a 5 minute walk from Production Park, you will have a more happening base with lots of shops, bars and things to do. In September 2014 our Unity Works Campus opened, situated close by to Westgate Train Station, it is open to all students and has computer suites and practical spaces that are available to use out of classroom hours.

Local Estate agents Linley and Simpson have a range of different properties to suit all budgets and are more than happy to assist in the house hunting process.

To help new students meet each other and find potential housemates we have a group on Facebook where people can discuss common interests and their requirements for accommodation. If you require any assistance or would like to be added to the Facebook group please contact Ria Forsyth: 01977 659880
