Frequently Asked Questions

Q.Can I bring my car?

All our developments are based in fantastic city centre locations, with great transport links nearby. We also try and be as eco-friendly as possible so we don't encourage students to bring cars. Very limited parking is available on a case-by-case basis – if you have a genuine need to keep a car at university, you can contact the management to discuss your options. All our developments have nearby public car parks, perfect for when friends and family visit. Short term car access is available for dropping off or picking up your belongings.

Q. Can my friend store their things/belongings/luggage in my room?

No. Letting someone else store their things in your room is a breach of your Licence Agreement, and it will also invalidate your insurance coverage. 

Q. Can I have guests to stay?

Of course. We normally allow a maximum stay of two days per visit for guests but they will need to sign in/out at reception (this is outlined in our guest policy which you will sign when you move in). Guests are not allowed their own keys.

Q. Where can I get my laundry done?

On-site laundry facility is available but at an additional cost from the rent.

Q. Do I need a guarantor?

Yes, a guarantor will be required for international students booking at the property.
