Frequently Asked Questions

Do I pay a booking fee or advance rent?

Management ask for an advance rent payment (£100 to £300 depending on the location) to allocate you a room.
For the properties in England, this will be deducted from the first instalment or payment which is due before the tenancy start date. For the properties in Scotland, this will deducted from the first instalment or payment due on the tenancy start date.

How do I book?

It couldn't be easier! Management only take bookings through their website; this is a really easy and secure system. Simply select your chosen location, the room you want and then follow the steps. If you are having any problems making a booking online then please contact the scheme directly.
Once you've paid your advance rent, you will be allocated a room and receive an email with instructions on how to complete the booking process. Please note, there is a 10 day deadline to accept your room offer and sign your licence agreement electronically. Failure to complete your booking may result in your booking being cancelled and you will forfeit your advance rent. Please note, if your booking is made within 14 days of the licence start date management reserve the right to reduce the acceptance period to within 48 hours of the licence start date.

How do I sign my copy of the Licence Agreement?

Once you’ve accepted an offer, you need to sign your Licence Agreement electronically, after which you’ll need to upload your documentation. At this point management confirm your booking and you can make your first rental payment. If you have a guarantor they’ll also need to sign and upload their ID/proof of address – (only once you have signed). They perform a credit check on all guarantors.
They accept passports, driving licences and national identification cards as valid proof of ID.
You will receive an electronic copy (signed by management) on your move in day.

What happens if I want to cancel my booking?

Get in touch and tell us straight away. How much management can help will depend on the timing and the circumstances of your cancellation.
Licence Agreements are legally binding, so once you have signed and returned your contract you're required to pay your rent. If (under special circumstances only) you need to pull out of the Licence Agreement, they'll help try to find a replacement Licensee for your room - but they can't guarantee that they'll be able to. If a new Licensee is found then they can release you from your licence, but there will be a re-licence fee*. If you require a copy of the re-licence terms and conditions then please contact us.
*England only

Can I leave early and get the remainder of my rent back?

Unfortunately, you are committed under the licence agreement to pay the full rent, however if you decide you want to leave early please tell the managers of your site asap. They may have a waiting list of people that would like to take over your licence agreement which would then relinquish you from your contract. If you find a new Licensee, They'll let you out of your agreement from the day they move in, and refund you any unused rent that you've paid in advance (minus a £50 admin fee)*. They cannot refund your rent until you have found someone to take over your licence agreement, their booking is confirmed and they have paid the first instalment of their rent.
*England only

What bills do I need to pay?

All utility bills (gas, electricity and water), WiFi and contents insurance for your belongings are all included. If you bring your own television or use one that is pre-installed in your room then you will have to buy your own TV licence.
If you cease to be a full time student during the occupation of your room then you will become liable for council tax. If the second occupant of a double occupancy room is not a student then they may also be liable for council tax.

Can I transfer my booking to a different management location?

It’s possible that you’ll be able to transfer from one management location to another before moving in, but this completely depends on what they have available. If they can transfer you, your booking fee will move with your room but you’ll be charged an admin fee of £50 – and unfortunately they can’t guarantee that you’ll get the same sort of room. If you need to request a transfer, contact the site manager at your original property location.

Can I change my room?

If you’d like to change your room once you’ve moved in, management will do their best to accommodate you (providing they’re not fully booked). Any moves will incur a £50 admin fee*. If you’ve moved to a cheaper room, any excess rent you’ve already paid will be taken off the next instalment. If you’ve already paid for the whole year, they’ll simply give you a refund of the difference.
*England only

What happens if my student loan is late and I can't pay my instalment on time?

The student loan shouldn't be late, however if there is a problem management will need a letter from the loan company showing amount and dates of payments and four week's advance rent before you move in September.

How long is the contract?

- have enough money to support yourself and pay for your course - the amount will vary depending on your circumstances
- can speak, read, write and understand English
- have consent from your parents if you’re 16 or 17 - you’ll need evidence of this when you apply

How do I open a bank account?

The UK has lots of banks, including National Westminster (NatWest), Barclays, RBS, Santander, HSBC and Lloyds. All of these offer special bank accounts for students, which usually include an interest-free overdraft. All high street banks have the same basic range of services – savings accounts, credit cards, overseas cash transfers and so on – but they offer different deals to attract new customers, so shop around to find your favourite.
To open a bank account you’ll need to visit a branch of your bank (check to see if your chosen bank has a branch near your Capitol Students location) with the appropriate ID. Your passport, driving licence and one or two forms of proof of address (such as a bill or licence) will usually be enough. Bank accounts take a few days to get up and running, so try to open yours before you leave for university – or make sure you have a credit card to keep you going when you arrive.

If I want to get a part-time job, where should I look for opportunities?

You’ll find that your student union often has job adverts, and if you’re looking for shop, bar or restaurant work you can usually spot “Help wanted” signs in the shop windows. Your local Jobcentre will also have opportunities – simply head to the website and search by area.

How do I register with a doctor?

Most surgeries now offer online registration – once you’ve found your local GP, check their website. Check with us too for any recommendations.

If I'm an international student can I open a bank account in the UK?

No problem – you’ll just need the same identification as other students. Take your passport, driving licence and at least one proof of address document such as a bill or licence. If you can get a letter from your bank at home recommending you, that’s even better – but you don’t strictly need this, and you absolutely do need the ID mentioned above.

No, but you can purchase bedding and other items.

Are there fridges in the rooms?
