Housing Options for Single People

Help and advice for single people aged 18 and over

Hostel Accommodation

If you're a single person with no children and you are homeless, or threatened with homelessness, you may be able to access our local hostel.  Two Saints operate a direct access hostel close to Newbury town centre.

The main hostel has 60 beds and is staffed 24 hours a day - it is also able to accept people with varying support needs.

Contact Two Saints directly for more information about their service. If you would like to be referred into the hostel, please contact the Housing Options Team at, or phone us on 01635 519 530 and choose option 2.

Private Rented Accommodation

You may wish to consider finding accommodation in the private sector. You should make sure that any property you move into is affordable to you in the longer term. 

  • If you're under 35 and dependant upon Universal Credit, you would usually only be eligible for a single room in a shared house at Local Housing Allowance rates
  • If you're aged over 35, you would usually be eligible for the one bed rate

If you are unable to afford a rent advance and deposit, we may also be able to assist.
