Frequently Asked Questions

Can I book over the phone?

Although they can give you lots of advice and information over the phone relating to their properties, unfortunately booking can only be done via their website or in person at one of their sites.

Can I book at the property?

Yes you can! If you would like to drop by one of their property receptions during their opening hours they would be happy to help. If you wish, you can arrange a time to speak to them and also see their rooms, you can book a viewing appointment and this will ensure someone is available to help you. You can do this online or by calling the relevant reception number.

Can I view your rooms?

Yes, of course! You can arrange a time to come for a viewing here. One of their lovely site team members will be able to show you around.

Who is eligible to book with this accommodation?

Any full time student can live with this property management. If you are unsure as to whether you quality please call them on the relevant reception number to discuss your situation.

If I am doing an internship / placement year, am I allowed to live in this property?

As long as you are still registered as a full time student and your placement is part of your degree/course then yes, you can still live with the property during the academic year. Outside of the academic term, some of their properties are able to accommodate non-students and part time students on a short term basis – so do get in touch if this is something you require.

What happens if I change my mind after booking the room?

You have a 7 day ‘cooling off’ period from the point you pay your deposit as long as the 7 days lapse before the tenancy start date. Once the tenancy has started, you are not able to cancel. If after the tenancy has started you want to leave, you will need to find a replacement to take over your room. They can advise you with this. Just speak to reception if this is something you require.

What is a deposit protection scheme?

By law, if you pay a deposit to your landlord or letting agent then they must protect it in a government-authorised tenancy deposit protection scheme. It applies to all landlords and agents in England and Wales who have an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) agreement (the contract) with their tenant. It was introduced to ensure that you are able to get your deposit back from your landlord or agent when you move out.

What are the payment options?

There is a range of payment instalment options available to choose from, ranging from 1-10, depending on which property you choose to stay at. If you need more flexible options or any dates need to be changed due to delays in your student finance, then this may be considered pending you provide evidence of your confirmed payment dates from SFE.

Can I make special requests on my application such as living in an all-female flat?

Yes. On their online application, you will find a section for additional information. In this section you can state any such special requests. Although they are not able to guarantee every request as it does depend on specific requests, the number of people making requests and the fact that they do not actually allocate rooms until a few weeks before tenancy start – they do try their best to make sure as many requests as possible are met. However in the vast majority of cases, they are usually able to successfully accommodate requests such as same gender, postgraduate or undergraduate flats. It's a good idea to contact sites to discuss.

Are the room pictures on the website of the exact room I would receive?

The room pictures on the website are only indicative of the room type and not of the actual room you may be allocated. The reason for this is firstly they have so many rooms across the country, that it is not possible to put an image of every single room. Secondly, they receive many room preference requests from students i.e. female only, postgraduates only etc that they must wait until close to check in to allocate an exact room to make sure they do their best to meet resident requests. However, you will of course be allocated the room type you have selected.

Will I get a chance to meet new people and make friends at this property management?

Yes, definitely! As part of the property management Life program, they run an extensive events calendar across all their sites. An aim of this program is to allow residents to meet each other and make new friends.

Which bills are included?

All your energy, water and insurance costs are included in the rent making it easier to budget and your student loan can go further! Don’t forget to check out whether you will need a TV Licence as the property management does not cover this.

Is there parking provided?

Unfortunately, they are not able to provide parking at their sites. However, there are on street and off street options available near all of their sites.

Can I cancel my booking?

There are circumstances in which they can cancel contracts for students who have paid their advanced rent but have not yet moved into the property.

What resources and documents will I need during my stay?

Check with their onsite team to know the resources and documents you will need in advance of and during your stay.
