If you do that, you will not be charged and they will return your deposit or any Advance Rent Payments you have made.

Provided the 7 Day Cooling-Off-Period has expired, you will have to pay all amounts due under your Tenancy Agreement unless a replacement Tenant is found for your Room or you enter into a new Tenancy.

No Place No Pay applicable to 1st year students only. If you are a prospective first year undergraduate student and your offer of a place at your preferred University/Higher Education Institution is withdrawn by the University/Higher Education Institution as a result of you not achieving their required entry grades, you may be eligible to be released from this agreement. You may also be eligible to be released from this agreement if you are a prospective first year undergraduate student and you choose to go to a different University because you have exceeded your expected grades. To apply to be released from this agreement in the circumstances referred to above, you will need to supply us with a copy of:

a written rejection letter from your chosen university/college or UCAS or a screen shot of your UCAS status which confirms that the required results were not achieved; or

a copy of the proof of acceptance of your new university by UCAS adjustment.

These document(s) must be received by us within 7 calendar days from the date your results are published. Please email the documentation.

International Cancellation Policy:-


Once a booking is processed, the student has 7 days to accept the offer. It means for the student and the guarantor to accept the contract and pay the GBP 250 advance rent payment. (For bookings in England only. No Advance Rent Payment is required for bookings in Scotland).


Once these steps are done, the booking is completed.


If one of the step is not completed within these 7 days, the offer will expire.


If the student still wants a room, they can re-process a booking, but they cannot guarantee that the same room or the same price will be available.


Once the booking is completed, the student has another 7 days to change their mind and cancel their booking without any reasons. This is called the cooling-off period.


Conditions for cancellation

Past these 7 days, the student remains liable for the rent for the whole length of the tenancy unless they want to cancel with one of these 3 conditions:


No Place No Pay: if the student fails their exams or is rejected by the UK University, the student needs to send us the university rejection letter, or proof that the exam results dont meet the requirements of the university, and they will cancel the booking and refund the money to the student. The student must send us the proof documents within 7 days of receiving them. This policy is valid until the 15th September.

31 May Cancellation Promotion: if the student books a room for the 2021/22 academic year by 31 May 2021, the student can cancel their booking before that date without penalty. Terms and conditions apply.

No Visa No Pay: if the student doesnt get their visa to come and study in the UK, the student must send us the visa application rejection letter within 7 days of receiving it and they will cancel the booking and refund the money to the student. This policy is valid until the 15th September.

The cancellation requests along with the proof documents must be sent by the student, from the email address they have registered their account with Unite.


The email must be sent either from the student to the agent, and then the agent contacts our teams. Or the student can directly email


Replacement tenant found: if the student finds a replacement tenant to take over his room with the same tenancy length and same weekly rate, they can process the booking for the new student, and once the offer has been accepted by the new student and his guarantor, and that they have paid the GBP 250 (if applicable), they will release the original student from their contract.


Passed the 15th September, the No Place No Pay and No Visa No Pay do not apply.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I move in early?

Our standard tenancies have fixed dates and cannot be changed. However if you are looking to move in earlier it may be possible to book an additional short stay tenancy, this will involve signing another set of paperwork and you will be charged for any additional nights.

What documents do I need to bring to the property when I move in?

Please bring an official form of id with you e.G. Passport or provisional/driving licence. If you have not already returned the original signed tenancy agreement you should also bring these with you.

Havent paid rent yet, can I still move in?

Its really important that your rent is paid on time. Your first instalment before moving in covers the first part of your tenancy.

Can my family/friends stay for a few nights after dropping me off?

It is best to speak with the staff at the property to find out if this is ok. If it is only for an evening or two, that is usually fine.

Where do I get my keys?

You can collect your keys from reception when you check in. Just come straight to the main reception with your photo id and they will have the keys ready and waiting for you.

I have been given a time slot but I might miss it?

Thats fine, you can arrive at any time that is best for you and well get someone to come and let you in and get your keys for you.

My room is not like the website I want to move. Can I do this?

All our show flats, and the images on our website, are representative of a particular room type unless labelled otherwise however they are not identical.

If you are unhappy with your room, please speak to the reception team as there is often something we can do. Where there are other rooms available we will offer these as an alternative.

If the address where your deposit cheque needs to be sent has changed, then please also let us know on this envelope. If you need another envelope, please see your reception team.

What happens if I check out and nobody is at reception?

If reception is not open, look for a fast check out key drop box where you can leave your check out envelope.

Can I leave my belongings in my room?

Not unless you have booked to continue staying with us in your room and have a valid tenancy. Anything that is left once you have checked out will be removed as we have to get the room ready for the next tenant. A charge may apply if we have to remove any leftover belongings, so please remember to clear everything out when you leave.

Can I leave things in my room if have rebooked for next year?

If you have a valid tenancy covering the time period, then yes you can. We just ask you to label any items in shared areas to confirm that they belong to you and not to someone else who has already checked out. This will help our cleaners. If your booking finishes in june or july and your next tenancy starts in september, you will need to arrange a summer short stay tenancy to bridge the gap.  If you do not have a valid tenancy for the summer months, you will need to move everything out of your room and shared areas as someone else could be occupying the flat immediately after you leave.

Whats the latest time I can check out?

This varies depending on your property so check with a team member at reception well in advance of your check-out date. It is likely that the latest time will be 12:00pm on the last day of your tenancy.

Can I stay an extra day?

This depends on your room and property, so please speak to the reception team regarding extending your stay.

When will I get my deposit back?

If you are staying in england, you will get your deposit back in the form of a cheque, sent to your home address, within 14 days after your tenancy end date. If you are staying in scotland, mydeposits scotland will have emailed you a unique release code at the start of your stay. You need this at the end of your tenancy to authorise the return of your deposit. Your property contacts mydeposits scotland at the end of your tenancy to confirm that you have checked out of your accommodation and advise on the deposit amount due to be refunded to you. This will be the full deposit minus any charges applied after your room has been inspected, or if your tenancy account has any outstanding balance due. Mydeposits scotland will email to tell you that we have started the release process. You have 30 working days from the date of this email to respond to the deposit release request. You will need to enter your release code to access any refund. If you do not respond within this timeframe, mydeposits scotland will return the deposit amount we have advised as due following your check out.

I forgot to put on the inventory that there was some damage when I moved in. Will I be charged?

Possibly yes, this is to be fair and consistent with our approach
