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.
