Booking Info

Updates to Policy

This property offers a‘ Flexible start date scheme’ where students have the opportunity to extend their start date if their course has been delayed by more than 21 days.

If canceled within 15 days of making the booking, then the Reservation Rent will be refunded back. Booking can be canceled only with written notice.

If the student fails to sign the agreement within 15 days of making the booking, then the property can cancel the booking and will not refund the Reservation Rent.

Regular Policy
 

To apply for and book, a flat or bedroom at the property, you must pay £100 to reserve the room (described herein as “Reservation Rent”). 

You will have 15 days from making your booking to sign the Tenancy Agreement. The Reservation Rent is fully refundable if you cancel your booking within this period. 
 

You may be eligible to be released from your agreement if: 

Your offer of a place at your preferred University/Higher Education institution is withdrawn as a result of you not achieving the required entry grades, you have surpassed your required entry grades and choose to go to a different University or you have extenuating circumstances that prevent you taking your place at University. 

In order to meet the criteria you will need one of the following: 

• To provide a written rejection letter from your chosen university/Higher Education Institute.

• Evidence as to why you cannot take your place.

You will be required to pay a deposit (“Deposit”) at the commencement of the Residential Period. This payment will be collected with your first rental payment. 

Your Deposit will be held under a Tenancy Deposit Protection Scheme and will be used as security against any damage to the Room, the Flat or the Property (fair wear and tear excepted), any damage to the furnishings or other equipment provided (fair wear and tear excepted) and any unpaid rent or other charges incurred during the duration of your Tenancy Agreement. The balance of the Deposit will be paid to you within 28 days after the termination of the Tenancy Agreement, less any reasonable costs incurred for the breach of any obligation under the Tenancy Agreement.

It is important that you understand that when you sign your Tenancy Agreement, you are entering into a legal agreement with the Landlord, and are liable for the full rent due for the Residential Period. 

Cancellation of your Booking by Property

Our terms and conditions reflect that you are required to sign your Tenancy Agreement within 15 days of completing your online booking and paying your Reservation Rent.

If you fail to sign your agreement within this timescale we may cancel your booking, giving notice by email, and you will forfeit any "reservation rent" paid if it is outside 15 days cooling-off period.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What's included in the 'inclusive rate'?

All utilities - electric, gas and water - are included in the rent on a ‘fair usage allowance’ with hot water available 24-hours per day.

Heaters are controlled individually by the tenants in their rooms.

High-speed internet and Wi-Fi throughout the building, including bedrooms and ethernet cable connection in bedrooms

Council Tax – students are exempt from paying council tax. However, some councils may charge tenants out of term time, therefore the tenant is liable for any council tax charges that may be incurred.

Q. Is there a TV?

A flat-screen, 32 inch TV with 40 channels is provided in most of our apartments and studios. If you’ve brought your own TV, you’ll be pleased to hear that there’s a TV aerial point in your bedroom, but please note, you are responsible for providing your own TV licence.

Q. How do I access the internet?

Broadband and Wi-Fi is available throughout the building, 24 hours a day.  Wired connections are available via an Ethernet cable, available from the concierge team, and connected to the wall socket in your room.

Q. What do I have to pay and when?

Payments can then be made in three instalments – the first one of which must be paid in advance of tenancy. If students are unable to provide a UK based guarantor, payment will need to be paid a year in advance, in full, prior to tenancy start dates.

Q. This will be my first time living in the UK and I’m nervous as I won’t know anybody...

Communal student living is all part of the university experience. We’ve arranged things to ensure that you have a great environment, friendly people and a real sense of community. We want you to enjoy the now and look back with fondness when the time comes to move on.

To help make sure you have the best of times, our accommodation team will arrange events throughout the academic year to help you get to know your flatmates while having a good time – and even learning something new and different from your studies.

Q. How do I use the onsite laundry facility?

Our laundry room machines are fully maintained and very simple to use. Machine availability is viewable on-line through the Circuit Laundry website (www.circuit.co.uk).  This means you can view when a machine is available to use and also when your wash has finished! A top-up card is distributed with welcome packs and cards can be topped up in increments of £10 to the value of £80. The cost of a wash is £2.60 and £1.10 for a dry.

Q. What kind of students will be living at this accommodation?

A wide range of students live here, including post-graduate students and international students.

Q. I would like to be situated close to my friends in the same apartment block - is this possible?

Please let us have details at the time of booking and we will always try and accommodate friends and students from the same or different university together.
