Please note – University policy ordinarily prohibits the uses of AirBnB and other similar organisations for University work-related travel purposes, and suitable regulated accommodation should always be used where available.
However, it is acknowledged there will be exceptions where AirBnB could be the only practical solution (for example, medical student placements in rural locations); for these purposes please ensure you have knowledge of the responsibilities for managing the risks, that reasonable risk assessment steps are taken and the risk of exposure to the department of costs not covered by insurance.
Please refer to Guidance on Managing Risks from Travel,Fieldwork and Work Away
