International Cancellation Policy :

Once a booking is processed, the student has 7 days to accept the offer. It means for the student and the guarantor to accept the contract and pay the £250 advance rent payment. (For bookings in England only. No Advance Rent Payment is required for bookings in Scotland).

Once these steps are done, the booking is completed.

If one of the step is not completed within these 7 days, the offer will expire.
If the student still wants a room, we can re-process a booking, but we cannot guarantee that the same room or the same price will be available.

Once the booking is completed, the student has another 7 days to change their mind and cancel their booking without any reasons. This is called the cooling-off period.

Passed these 7 days, the student remains liable for the rent for the whole length of the tenancy unless they want to cancel with one of these 3 conditions:

No Place No Pay: if the student fails their exams or is rejected by the UK University, the student needs to send us the university rejection letter, or proof that the exam results don’t meet the requirements of the university, and we will cancel the booking and refund the money to the student. The student must send us the proof documents within 7 days of receiving them. This policy is valid until the 15th September.
For January 2021 start dates, our cancellation deadline for No Place No Pay and No Visa No Pay is on the 30th November 2020.
No Visa No Pay: if the student doesn’t get their visa to come and study in the UK, the student must send us the visa application rejection letter within 7 days of receiving it and we will cancel the booking and refund the money to the student. This policy is valid until the 15th September.

Replacement tenant found: if the student finds a replacement tenant to take over his room with the same tenancy length and same weekly rate, we can process the booking for the new student, and once the offer has been accepted by the new student and his guarantor, and that they have paid the £250 (if applicable), we will release the original student from their contract.

Passed the 15th September, the No Place No Pay and No Visa No Pay do not apply.

The student remains liable for the rent unless they find a replacement.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Can I have friends/family to stay overnight?
They want you to consider your room as your home and are happy for you to have guests to stay. All they 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. Can I smoke in my room?
All properties are non-smoking throughout so please speak to your property team to ask where you can smoke. There are usually outside areas for you to smoke with ashtrays provided.

Q.What happens if I can't make a payment?
Your installment due dates are outlined in your tenancy agreement and by accepting the terms and conditions of your contract, both customer and guarantor are accepting responsibility for payment on the dates provided. If you are unable to make payment for your rent, please speak to your property team. They will be able to discuss with you your payment options and advise you of any future implications dependant on how late the payment will be.

Q.Can you store my luggage if I get it delivered to the site before I arrive?
As they will be preparing the room for your arrival, they will not be able to store any luggage for you before you arrive.

Q.What do I need to bring with me to check-in?
You just need to bring a valid form of photo ID to prove who you are. There’s no need to print off your tenancy agreement or booking confirmation. 

Q. Can someone else pick my key up for me?
No. For security reasons, we can only give your room key directly to you.

Q. Can my family or friends stay for a few nights after dropping me off?
You are allowed to have guests to stay, and one or two nights is usually fine. They just ask that you are considerate of your flatmates. For those first few days while you are all arriving and settling in, it may be better for your guest to make other arrangements if possible.
