One of the hardest things about being a student is finding healthy, warm, well-maintained, affordable housing close to campus. It's like looking at a massive venn diagram where on the one hand you might have a warm affordable flat but it's in Brockville, or you have a flat right in the heart of Castle St but there are large things living in the ceiling (possibly last years tenants?) and a permanent draft whistling through the rooms.
Rate My Flat is a means of giving future tenants the lowdown on what to expect if they choose to move into a rated flat - it's helping out future students (in fact, helping out any future tenant) know what they're getting in to, and acts as a means of calling out landlords who are not keeping their flats up to scratch and giving massive props to the landlords who are doing right by their tenants!
