The most asked questions about our Student Accommodation

Q. How Do I Book?
Make contact with us, either by phone, email or call in to see us. We will take the necessary details and prepare contracts for you to sign.


Q. Do I Need A Guarantor?
A UK based guarantor is required for tenancies. This is usually a parent or guardian. Overseas students who cannot provide a UK based guarantor are unable to pay the rent in instalments.


Q. How Long Is The Tenancy For?
Tenancies run for 44 weeks. Should you wish to extend your stay please contact us as early as you know you need to stay on.


Q. How Do I Pay My Rent?
We usually request post dated cheques, which we will hold on your behalf until the due date.
Alternatively a direct debit may be arranged or a credit card payment can be made.


Q. Can I Live With My Friends?
Provided you advise us at the time of booking and we have availability, we will always try and accommodate such request.


Q. Do I Need To Pay A Deposit?
No, we don’t require a deposit, but any damages found at the end of the tenancy would be invoiced to you/your guarantor.


Q. Can I Terminate My Contract After Signing It?
No, the contract is binding, so you must be comfortable with it before you sign it. Notwithstanding this, should you find a suitable successor for your room, we would be happy to assign the contract. We will always help to try to find someone to take over your tenancy in these circumstances.


Q. Are There Any Other Bills?
No, your rent covers all power, heating and water charges.


Q. Can I Move In Before My Tenancy?
Yes but only subject to availability, although this is generally not a problem. Additional rent would be payable pro-rata on how early you would want to move in.


Q. Do I Need A TV Licence?
Yes, if you own a TV you would be responsible for obtaining and paying for a television license.
