About Bed Student Rentals

About Bed Student Rentals

We opened the Bedquarter Office in Garden Lane, just a hop skip and a jump away from the main Parkgate Campus in February 2018, working with just a handful of landlords and offering less than 50 rooms. Fast forward a few years and it’s fair to say the growth and success of the business has vastly exceeded our own expectations! We are now probably the largest independent letting agent specialising in accommodation for students and young professionals in the City of Chester, offering over 800 rooms!

We believe that the place a student chooses to live is as important as the degree and university they choose! With our clear, transparent style, we make it our mission to understand the requirements of our tenants and guide them through the letting process to find them the perfect property with all the ‘bills’, bells and whistles included! For our landlords we offer a choice of affordable letting services with customer care at the forefront of everything we do.

The Bed Team are a friendly bunch of experienced forward-thinking individuals, who are passionate about providing the best possible renting experience for landlords and tenants. We take an honest and pragmatic approach with modern creative marketing and use the latest industry technologies to improve our efficiency.

Bed offers a choice of affordable quality accommodation, including ‘Boutique by Bed’, a selection of high end properties finished to a superior standard and added Wow! Plus ‘Frat by Bed’ houses suitable for sports teams or large social groups, kitted out with astro-turf lounges, large flat screen TV’s and other quirky extras such as dart boards and pool tables!

We have houses of all shapes and sizes from modern two-bedroom flats overlooking the canal, beautiful renovated terraced accommodation right in the heart of the City to the large Victorian town houses in the eclectic Garden Quarter.

The Bedquarters office door is always open for our tenants and landlords who often pop in just for a cuppa and a chat. If you think Bed can help you please do get in touch, we would love to hear from you.

Mike Hannigan - Director

Mike Hannigan - Director


After working in the student hospitality and entertainment industry for 17 years, Mike decided it was time for a change. Wanting to stay within the student market, Mike made the transition to the student accommodation sector. Taking all his knowledge of the student community and marketing he strode into the housing sector with his best foot forward. After finessing his expertise within the industry, Mike took the first step to going out on his own – creating Bed. Driving the business forward every day, Mike created great working relationships with landlords and students to grow Bed into what it is today - a hugely successful student rentals company with an amazing team of staff to support the business’ development.
