Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Is the site secured?

The site covered by CCTV and has onsite security staff, with staff present 24 hours a day. There is also a digital entry system at the building. 

Q. Can I book if I'm under 18?

We require that all tenants living at one of our buildings in England and Wales are over the age of 18 at the time of moving in. You may book if you are 17, but only if you will have turned 18 before you move in. Exceptions to this rule are available in selected cases through prior arrangement with a university or institution. 

Q. Can I bring a TV?

If you want to bring a TV, check that your room has a TV point and don’t bring one larger than 21”. You can’t mount your TV on the wall, so make sure it’s free-standing. While all TVs provided by iQ in communal areas accessed by all residents are covered by a TV Licence, you will need to buy your own licence if you bring your own TV or if there is one already in your room or shared kitchen & living area. 

Q. Can I bring pets?


Q. Can I choose where my room is in the building?

Yes, you can specify where you would like your room to be – from those which are still available – at the time you book.

Q. Can I have overnight guests?

Yes. It's your home so you can have guests staying over occasionally, but we would ask you to respect your fellow residents and let your site team know. You are responsible for the behaviour of any guests you bring to your iQ site.

Q. Can I move out early?

You can move out whenever you are ready but the contract you have is a Fixed Term Tenancy Agreement and you will still need to pay the full rent until the end of the agreement. In exceptional circumstances, the Property Manager may decide to grant an early release from the tenancy.

Q. Can I smoke in my room?


Q. Can I swap my room?

It may be possible to swap or change your room once you have moved in, subject to availability. A room change fee will apply. 

Q. Do I have to be home by a certain time each night?

No, it’s up to you when you come in. If returning late at night, please respect your fellow residents and keep noise to a minimum.

Q. Do you provide bedding?


Q. Does the building permit the use of drugs at its accommodation?

No, drugs are not permitted and prohibited items will be confiscated. The tenancy agreement gives the right to confiscate substances, including ‘legal highs’ without the consent of the resident.

Q. How do I get my post / mail?

Your post will be delivered to a lockable post box for your flat. Larger items or those that require a signature on delivery will be retained by Reception. You will be notified if Reception receives an item for you, and you should collect it as soon as possible.

Q. In the event of a fire, how can I trust that my accommodation is safe?

The safety and security of our residents is our number one priority. All of our sites are fully compliant with current safety standards. Our accommodation has fire alarm systems in place as well as fire prevention equipment, and we carry out regular testing and evacuation drills. Our building is also regularly audited by external, independent consultants.

Q. Is there internet access on site?

Yes, the site is equipped with WiFi, accessible throughout the building at no extra charge. This service is provided by our internet partners, ASK4. If you have any issues with connecting, you can find their contact details in the resident handbook you will receive on arrival.

Q. Will my flat be cleaned?

You are responsible for keeping your own space clean. It's our responsibility to keep the common areas like the social spaces, reception and laundry clean.
