Cambridge is a thriving city with a large student population and a ready supply of accommodation, rental and otherwise.  If you do not wish to live in the city of Cambridge there are plenty of villages surrounding Cambridge, as well as nearby towns such as Ely, Newmarket and Saffron Walden where people who work at Frontier also live.

When looking for a place to rent you have a number of options:

Renting a house or flat on your own

In Cambridge the prices for these currently range from £500 - £800 per month for a 1 – 2 bedroom place.

Shared house/flat

Here you’d be living with anything from 2-8 other people. You would have your own room and share the rest of the facilities (Kitchen/bathroom etc.) this normally works out from about £250 - £350 per month. If doing this check with the landlord that you are responsible for your rent alone and that if someone moves out you are not going to be expected to cover their share as well.

When you first join Frontier, we’d be happy to see if any of our existing staff have vacancies in their rented houses should you wish.


This is similar to the shared house but means you are normally only getting a room to live in. Amenities are still shared but generally you wouldn’t have a social area such as a living room. Prices are about the same as a normal shared house.

The website of the local newspaper “The Cambridge Evening News” offers a property search facility for either buying or renting and information on available house shares.

When renting be sure to check with the landlord first what is included in the rent and what you will have to pay for separately, namely the bills (gas, electric, water), council tax and television licence.
