Who We Are

We are independent!

Varcity Living is an independent organisation, specialising in the high quality property letting business, offering affordable luxury student accommodation in Bangor, North Wales.

As well as letting our own properties, we use our experience and expertise to develop, manage and let properties for landlords in the Bangor area. See our Property Management page for more details.

Being independent from other student accommodation companies gives us the freedom to provide a professional and more personal service - our main office is on College Road and the team are always close by to help, so you don’t have to worry about anything!

So, how did Varcity start?

After gaining an Honours degree from Cardiff University, Dave Horrocks embarked on a number of house renovation projects to fund his love of windsurfing in warmer climates during the winter months.

A gap in the market for high quality student lettings in Bangor close to the wind, waves and mountains of the North Wales coastline, led to the start of Varcity Living and the purchase of the first student property in 2005.

Since then, Dave and his team of local professionals and builders have refurbished over 50+ run down and dilapidated properties into high standard accommodation, ranging from luxury 2 bedroom apartments to 9 bed properties.

Word quickly spread about our great letting services and we were frequently approached by landlords asking if we could help manage their properties too. Dave said ‘why not’?, so the business expanded and now Varcity Living also offer quality Property Management services to Bangor Landlords and their tenants. 

Varcity Living is now well established in Bangor for offering quality student accommodation, superior to most that can be found in the city. Our office is on College Road, come in and say hello!

We like to do things differently

The focus of Varcity is to improve the living standards and the letting experience for students studying in Bangor and we want all our tenants to feel as happy, safe and as comfortable as they do at home.

  • We are fighting the stigma of poor quality, damp and run down properties by buying old, run down and dilapidated properties and refurbishing them to a high standard.
  • We make sure that all charges and costs are clear from day one, so there will be no hidden surprises.
  • We understand students and what they need – we have supported hundreds of students successful through their studies.
  • We offer All inclusive packages in our premium properties so you don’t have to worry about utility bills.
  • We are available 24/7 and most importantly.
  • We are approachable and happy to help!

We are local!

At Varcity Living we also believe in providing an excellent service to our tenants, from the day the contract is signed to the day they move out. To do this we need to be on hand and personal.

  • Our office is located on College Road and is open from 9am till 5:30pm every day to deal with general enquiries or housing issues.
  • Our dedicated team of local tradesmen and women are on hand 24/7 to answer any problems tenants and landlords may have or to help with any emergencies. Most of the team have worked on the refurbishment of the properties so they know them inside and out.

With Varcity Living you can be sure of a warm welcome, a quality product and be looked after like you would at home!
