Booking Info

*New Update*

With the continued border closure, it is important that we maintain healthy, thriving resident communities within our buildings. Therefore, it has been decided that we will be delaying Scape Carlton and Scape Darlington building opening dates to Semester 2, or until we do hear more news on border opening for Australia. Our residents deserve the best student experience, and opening our new properties with lower occupancy wouldn’t be providing the buzzing, inclusive communities that we promise to give our residents. 
 
For students who have booked in at these properties, the universities and students are informed of the decision, and we have provided complimentary upgrades to our current operational buildings. Students who were booked in at Scape Carlton will be relocated to Scape Swanston, and students who were booked in Scape Darlington will be relocated to Scape Abercrombie.
 
Be assured that we continue to lobby the state governments with chartered flights & quarantine solutions for the safe return of international students and hope that we will have good news soon. 

Updates to Policy

The Property is offering a deferral and cancellation policy for new bookings commencing in 2021 or semester 1, 2022 that provides flexibility if you are currently outside of Australiaand  impacted by COVID-19. This means you can secure your new home now, but with peace of mind that you can change or cancel your new booking without any financial impact*.

DEFERRAL

If you have a booking and are not able to arrive in Australia because of COVID-19, you can defer your contract to the following semester. The same terms of the original booking will carry forward to the new semester booking, including the type of room you booked and even the same weekly rent.

CANCELLATION

If you need to cancel your booking with us for one of the reasons detailed below, all you need to do is email us no less than 14 days before your contract start date and we will cancel your booking and provide a full refund of any fees paid.

We will provide flexibility to defer or cancel if you are impacted by any of the below reasons, all you
need to do is provide supporting documentation:

Visa Denied - If your visa application is rejected or the visa centre remains closed in your respective country.

Flight Cancellation/Travel Ban - If your scheduled flight is cancelled and an alternate flight is not available, or if there is a travel ban preventing travel from your country of origin or in Australia preventing you from arrival.

Intake Delay of University/Education provider - If the start date of your course has been postponed to a later date or semester, or the university does not offer face-to-face learning.


Regular Policy

Cancellation prior to lease start date

If a student requests to cancel or does not sign the residential agreement within the required timeframe specified by Scape, the booking may be cancelled and all fees paid will be refunded to the customer less the 1 week holding deposit.

All refunds will be made via the same method in which they were paid and to the same bank account or credit or debit card used. In order to arrange a refund, the customer may be required to complete a refund form.

Once the residential agreement is signed, the terms and conditions of the residential agreement will then apply.
