You can book a studio with us if you are a student aged 18 and over and in full time education, whether studying an Undergraduate or Postgraduate course for our long term lets.  

If you are interested in viewing a studio then you can easily arrange a viewing in person or through Skype.  We aim to make it as simple and hassle free to book with us.

2. HOW DO I CANCEL OR RE-ARRANGE MY VIEWING?

It’s not a problem we understand that things can change and will be only too happy to cancel or re-arrange your viewing.

3. CAN I BOOK A STUDIO WITHOUT HAVING VIEWED?

Of course, this isn’t a problem. We can provide you with lots of pictures and floor plans of each studio type, we can also arrange live Skype viewings. If you arrive and change your mind, we will do our best to accommodate you but subject to availability and additional administration charges.

We have a limited number of Studios with flexible terms available (from 40 weeks) so you can choose the term that suits you best. Our typical contract is 51 weeks.

This includes all your bills and makes living simple.

6. HOW DO I PAY?

Once you’ve made the easy decision to live in one of our studios, to confirm your booking we ask you to pay an admin fee of £120 along with the first month’s rental payment. You can then have a few options of how you would like to pay your rent:

    Monthly payments (if you have a UK guarantor), just speak to our Lettings Manager and she can explain all you will need to know.

7. HOW MUCH WILL THE DEPOSIT BE?

It depends on your Payment terms. If you pay:

– Annually: We ask for 4 weeks deposit.

– Monthly: You must have a UK guarantor or subscribe to our Guarantor scheme – We ask for 4 weeks deposit.

Your deposit will be registered with the Tenancy Deposit Protection Scheme for added protection.

8. WHAT IS THE TENANCY DEPOSIT PROTECTION SCHEME?

The Tenancy Deposit Protection (TDPS) is a piece of legislation introduced by the UK Government in April 2006, for landlords in England and Wales. The purpose of the scheme is to protect tenants from unscrupulous landlords, who have been accused in the past of taking amounts from deposits unfairly. The legislation ultimately protects you and allows us to follow a very streamlined process for disputes after check out.  

9. WHEN DO I GET MY REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT BACK?

At the end of your tenancy, assuming the studio and its belongings are in the same condition as when you moved in, and you’ve paid all your rent, your deposit will be refunded within 10 working days.

We left out your food or travel expenses, if you’re not within walking distance then you will be just a few minutes away from a Unilink bus stop to take you to University.

11. WHAT DO I NEED WHEN I CHECK-IN?

Once you have confirmed your booking, signed and returned all the paperwork (including copy of photo ID – we are sorry if it seems a lot), and paid all charges and deposits then you are ready to move in. Our Team will be on hand to help where we can when you move in, it doesn’t extend to unpacking, unfortunately.

20. WHO WILL MAINTAIN THE BUILDING?

23. WHAT HAPPENS IF I LOSE MY KEYCARD OR GET LOCKED OUT OF MY STUDIO?

We will ask you to pay £25.00 for a new key card. If you lock yourself out during working hours (9am-6pm) we will ask you to pay £25.00 to get you back into your studio. Outside of working hours, this charge increases to £50.00, so please be really careful!  Keep your room key card with you at all times.

24. WORRIED YOU WON’T KNOW ANYONE AND NEVER LIVED IN UK BEFORE?

Many of our students are from International countries and have never lived in the UK before, so firstly you won’t be alone.  We understand that starting University is nerve wracking enough and even harder being so far from home.  Here, we want you to feel at home and want your time here to be a great experience and one you remember always.

To help make you settle in and get to know some friends our Events Team will be arranging a number of events throughout the year from a Welcome party, film nights, visits to interesting places and Summer Barbeques.
