Q. Can I move in early?
A. Our standard tenancies have fixed dates and cannot be changed. However, if you are looking to move in earlier it may be possible to book an additional short stay tenancy, this will involve signing another set of paperwork and you will be charged for any additional nights.
Q. Haven’t paid rent yet, can I still move in?
It’s really important that your rent is paid on time. Your first installment before moving in covers the first part of your tenancy.
Q. Can my family/friends stay for a few nights after dropping me off?
It is best to speak with the staff at the property to find out if this is ok. If it is only for an evening or two, that is usually fine.
Q. Where do I get my keys?
You can collect your keys from reception when you check in. Just come straight to the main reception with your photo ID and they will have the keys ready and waiting for you.
Q. I have been given a time slot but I might miss it?
That’s fine, you can arrive at any time that is best for you and we’ll get someone to come and let you in and get your keys for you.
Q. Can I have post delivered to the site even though I am not there yet?
If you are having anything delivered before you arrive just to make sure someone knows that it will be arriving there. You can notify the staff at the property of this so they can look after the parcels for you.

As we will be preparing the room for your arrival, we will not be able to store any luggage for you before you arrive.
Q. How can I get directions to the property?
The easiest way to get directions would be to search the postcode on Google maps and find the directions on there.
Q. How can I get from the train station/airport to the property?

Q. Can I have friends/family to stay overnight?
We want you to consider your Unite Students room as your home and are happy for you to have guests to stay. All we ask is that you let the on-site team know and that you consider your other flatmates and treat them with courtesy. You are responsible for any guests that you have staying with you and are liable if they cause any problems.
Q. An emergency has happened back home and I need to cancel. Can I do this?
In emergencies, each cancellation request is looked at on a case-by-case basis and an early release is at the discretion of the manager.
Q. I am not getting on with my flatmates, how do I complain?
Where possible our city teams will try to help you resolve your issues – when a group of new people lives together for the first time disputes can happen, so a bit of time can help to sort the problems out. If the problems are more serious then we will always try to move you to another flat if there is a room available. We take any form of anti-social behaviors, such as drugs or bullying, very seriously and investigate any complaints.
Q. Some belongings of mine have been stolen, what should I do?
If something is stolen from inside your flat, or there has been a break-in, please contact the police and then inform the reception team. You will get a crime reference number from the police which may help you to recover the cost of the items, depending on your insurance coverage. The police will usually contact us to obtain the CCTV footage from our Security and Safety Teams to assist them in any criminal matter.
Q. What is my internet speed? How do I upgrade?
In most of our properties, your wireless connection speed will be 25Mb. There is the option of upgrading online to 32Mb. You can even choose to do this for a month at a time.
Q. Can I park on site?
Many of our properties have a car park for students. There is a weekly cost for booking a car parking space, but you can choose to pay this in installments.
Q. I have no hot water. What do I do?
You just need to raise a Maintenance Request Form via the My Account section. Once logged, the form will go directly to our maintenance team. Issues are rated on severity, so if it is a busy time please bear with us as it may take slightly longer for us to get to you than usual.
Q. Why are my windows restricted?
Your window may have a restricting device that limits how far it opens. It’s there for your safety so it’s important that you don’t disconnect or damage it, or let anyone else do so. If the window fittings do become damaged, you need to tell a member of the property team straight away. We check all the windows and their fittings regularly, to make sure they’re all safe and working properly. Depending on the floor you live on, it may be possible to derestrict your window upon request and with approval from the management of your property. Please speak to your reception team.
Q. Who’s the manager?
Each city has dedicated managers for all our properties; you should be able to find out your manager's name by speaking to the staff at reception. The manager may not always be in your building as they may manage several properties.
Q. Where do I leave my keys?
You will be supplied with a check out envelope – please complete the front of the envelope with your name, room number and future address and leave it at the reception. If the address where your deposit cheque needs to be sent has changed, then please also let us know on this envelope. If you need another envelope, please see your reception team.
Q. Can I leave my belongings in my room?
Not unless you have booked to continue staying with us in your room and have a valid tenancy. Anything that is left once you have checked out will be removed as we have to get the room ready for the next tenant. A charge may apply if we have to remove any leftover belongings, so please remember to clear everything out when you leave.
Q. My flatmate has broken the microwave, will we be charged for it?
We do charge for damages, however, if the person responsible for causing the damage is willing to take full responsibility then we will only charge that person. If no one accepts the responsibility for damages in a communal area then the charge will be split between everyone in the flat. If this happens, you can discuss this further with a member of our reception team.
Q. Can I leave things in my room if I’ve rebooked for next year?
If you have a valid tenancy covering the time period, then yes you can. We just ask you to label any items in shared areas to confirm that they belong to you and not to someone else who has already checked out. This will help our cleaners.
If your booking finishes in June or July and your next tenancy starts in September, you will need to arrange a Summer Short Stay tenancy to bridge the gap.
If you do not have a valid tenancy for the summer months, you will need to move everything out of your room and shared areas as someone else could be occupying the flat immediately after you leave.
Q. What’s the latest time I can check out?
This varies depending on your property so check with a team member at reception well in advance of your check-out date. It is likely that the latest time will be 12:00 pm on the last day of your tenancy.
Q. Can I stay an extra day?
This depends on your room and property, so please speak to the reception team regarding extending your stay.
Q. When will I get my deposit back?
If you are staying in England, you will get your deposit back in the form of a cheque, sent to your home address, within 14 days after your tenancy end date.
If you are staying in Scotland, Mydeposits Scotland will have emailed you a unique Release Code at the start of your stay. You need this at the end of your tenancy to authorize the return of your deposit.
Unite Students contacts Mydeposits Scotland at the end of your tenancy to confirm that you have checked out of your accommodation and advise on the deposit amount due to be refunded to you. This will be the full deposit minus any charges applied after your room has been inspected, or if your tenancy account has any outstanding balance due.
Mydeposits Scotland will email to tell you that we have started the release process. You have 30 working days from the date of this email to respond to the deposit release request. You will need to enter your Release Code to access any refund. If you do not respond within this timeframe, Mydeposits Scotland will return the deposit amount we have advised as due following your check out.
Q. Where can I park to load up the car?
During our check in and check out periods, where available, we allow access to our car parks for short periods of time so you can load up/unload the car. If there is not a car park at the property then you may be able to park just outside for a while. In most cases, there are also public car parks nearby. Please speak to your reception team for advice specific to your property.
Q. I forgot to put on the inventory that there was some damage when I moved in. Will I be charged?
Possibly yes, this is to be fair and consistent with our approach. We encourage you to complete the inventory thoroughly when you first move in. We also document any damage on our own inspections so you may find that we have a record of this damage, please speak to your reception team for more information.
Q. Can I make repairs myself?
No, for health and safety reasons all repairs must be carried out by the property maintenance team. Please let us know about any maintenance issues by logging a maintenance request through My Account or the MyUnite app, which will allow you to log maintenance requests easily from your mobile device.
Q. I left something in my room – can I come and pick it up?
As we need to get rooms ready for our next tenants, we cannot allow things to be left in your room after your tenancy end date. You must clear all your belongings from your room, and from any common areas, before 10:00 am on your check out day. If you don't do this then we will dispose of your belongings without any liability, so please ensure you take everything with you.
Q. What happens if I have something being delivered to this address after I move out?
As we only have limited space for parcels and post we cannot keep mail once your tenancy has ended. All items delivered after the tenancy end date are returned to the sender.
Q. Will you give me a landlord reference?
Yes, we will be happy to do so.
