Booking Details

Cancellation Policy

Your Cancellations Rights - Should you wish to cancel your contract for your CODE Flat you will need to put it in writing within 7 days from the date of booking. Once 7 days have passed or you have accepted your online Tenancy Agreement, there is no further cooling off period and your refundable holding deposit will be retained by Code Students.

If you have accepted your booking summary by paying the refundable holding deposit to CODE Students you have entered into a legally binding agreement and the rent payments detailed in your Booking Summary and subsequently scheduled on your tenancy Agreement will remain your legal responsibility. Should you wish to cancel, we will look to mitigate any potential loss to you, our customer, by advertising your chosen room to other potential customers. However, until CODE Students has a binding contract in the name of the new tenant and their respective Guarantor(s) you will remain responsible for the rent in full, in line with your binding contract. CODE students will keep you fully informed of any potential new tenants and inform you in writing once there is a signed contract from a new tenant, therefore releasing you from any legal responsibility to pay any outstanding monies as outlined in your signed contract.

In addition, if the tenant has completed their booking i.e. accepted their contract and returned all of their guarantor documents, we will charge a 300 early termination fee.


Consumers cancellation rights


The cancellation period is limited to 7 days from the online booking on the basis that the consumer was given the required written information on or before the contract was concluded.

When providing Guarantor details do ensure that they are UK Homeowners because if they are not UK Homeowners then this invalidates your right to a refund as it remains your responsibility to comply with the conditions of letting prior to booking.

Payment Details

To reserve a CODE flat in your name we will require a refundable holding deposit of 100. The room is then booked for you in accordance with the Booking Summary provided.


In addition to your rent, a 300 refundable tenancy deposit will be payable after 24th April 2020.

The 300 refundable tenancy deposit will be returned to you at the end of your tenancy providing there is no outstanding charges against your room. This includes payment for any damage that has not been noted on your inventory when you moved in. Any deductions to deposits are made in line with the Tenancy Deposit Protection Scheme, outlined further in Deposits.


By accepting the tenancy agreement, you are consenting that the refund of the holding deposit is put towards your first rent instalment i.e we will deduct 100 from your first rent instalment.


we will take your credit/debit card details but your card will only be charged if a room becomes available within 30 days. 


At this point we will take a 100 holding deposit to book your room. If within 30 days there is no room available, your waitlist booking will be automatically cancelled.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long is my contract?

CODE offers 2 contract lengths depending on your preference, we currently offer 48 week contracts and 51 week contracts. If you have any further questions in regard to contracts or contract lengths please do not hesitate to contact us we will be happy to answer any questions.


When can I move in?

Upon completing your paperwork you will receive a contract which will provide you with your move in dates and your payment instalment dates. However, should you be in any doubt please contact us.


What if there is a problem with my flat while I am staying there?

We have a dedicated onsite maintenance department who you can contact directly during your time at CODE to efficiently resolve any problems that you may have. They will endeavour to address problems within 24 hours and at no extra cost to yourself.


Is CODE Student Accommodation suitable for first year students?

CODE welcomes students from their very first year at University through to their very last which is why we have a wide and diverse range of students within the CODE community.

If it is your first year at University and you want to enjoy newly built accommodation, a free gym, an on-site Cafe, a multitude of communal areas, and a host of other facilities then CODE Student Accommodation is the right choice for you.


How much does the room cleaning & laundry service cost?

We offer an independent professional cleaning service from 18.50 per room for a regular visit or 25 for a one-off clean including your kitchen and bathroom with an additional 10 for a full oven clean if needed. You can do your own washing at the CODE onsite launderette where it is just 2 for a wash and 1 for a dry.

Should you want to arrange for your room to be cleaned contact the Office in the first instance and we will contact the cleaning company on your behalf.


Do you have a service for purchasing essential items for my room?

You can buy all your bed linen and other items from unikitout.

If you choose to place an order you can benefit from your items being delivered to CODE in time for your arrival for free when you spend over 50.


What is a waitlist booking?

Our rooms are very popular and sell out fast. If the room you are interested in is sold out, you can make a waitlist booking. Using the waitlist system means you get a priority booking securing a room before its re-released on our website.

When you make a waitlist booking, we will take all your personal information and your credit/debit card details, but your card will not be charged until a room becomes available. However, the 100 will be marked as a pending payment by your bank or credit card provider, meaning you cannot use if for other payments. 

A waitlist booking is processed automatically, so is helpful if you really dont want to miss out on a room but cant keep checking our website for availability.

If within 30 days there is no room available, your waitlist booking will be automatically cancelled.

Please note: There is no guarantee a room will become available, but if it does, you will receive an email confirming your booking and information on next steps. We also recommend you only make one waitlist booking, choosing your most preferred room type.

Waitlist bookings should not be used by students who already have a booking with CODE. If you do want to change your room type, please contact us for options.


What happens if I want to cancel my booking?

Contact us. Do give us plenty of information and how much we can help will depend on the timing and the circumstances of your cancellation. 


Do you have anywhere I can store my bike?

We have plenty of secure Bike storage within both of our gated complexes. For you own peace of mind, provided your Bike is secured with a D Lock inside the secure Bike store, then it is also covered by your free insurance for theft.


What time is the CODE Cafe (Leicester) Open?

The Cafe is open during term time from 9am to 5pm on weekdays and also open at weekends for busy periods. You can get a great selection of food and drinks in the Cafe or you can also click on the tab on the website and order online to pick up. You will find a varied menu and always an option for vegetarians and we'll try to cater for everyone.

There is WiFi in the Cafe and places to plug in so we are very happy if you decide to camp out and study for the day in friendly surroundings.


Do you have a Parcel Collection Service?

We know you are not always here for Parcel Deliveries so we are happy to accept parcels on your behalf so you never have to worry.

Your parcels are normally delivered to the CODE Cafe in Leicester and the CODE Office in Coventry for secure storage and you will receive an email or text when they are available for collection but be quick because we can only store them for 14 days!


Why do you have an onsite Police Station?

The CODE Beat Office is an initiative with our local Police Station to make sure students feel comfortable in the community and get to know the Police well so that any possessions can be registered, advice sought and a positive relationship exists helping crime prevention in the area. Our International students find the information on obtaining their visas very helpful and overall the Beat Office presents a real deterrent to anybody considering entering the site uninvited. 


Would you recommend bringing a Bike?

CODE have worked with SUSTRANS to bring these great reasons for getting on your Bike.

  1. Leicester has a very cycle friendly city centre as well as easy, quiet cycle routes between the two university campuses.
  2. You can cycle from CODE into the city centre entirely on protected cycle paths, no need to cycle with other traffic. Plus there is at least 10 miles of traffic-free cycle routes along the river and canal taking you right through the city, through the many parks and out to the countryside.
  3. Cycling is the easiest and fastest way to get around, and is cheaper than the bus, taxi or car. Cycling in Leicester is practical for popping to and from either uni, for food shopping, going out to the pub, or out for ride to relax and keep fit!
  4. You can easily plan your route using the free paper cycle maps (available at CODE and the Tourist Info Centre), or online using www.choosehowyoumove.co.uk (for really local, up-to-date travel advice) or just use googlemaps.
  5. There are three bike shops within half a mile of CODE, where you can buy bikes, locks, parts and get your bike fixed and maintained. Plus both universities usually run free Dr Bike bike fixing sessions throughout the year.
  6. There are very cheap, indoor, secure bike parks both in the Town Hall Square and at the train station where you can leave your bike and not worry about security, as well as many secure bike racks to lock to around the city centre and universities.
  7. There are loads of free led bike rides around the city and out to the countryside, for all levels of confidence, many start from Bede Park, right next to CODE.
  8. And if you are REALLY into bikes there is a whole world of cycle passion you can join in with, including The Bike Lounge which happens at a Caf 96 Degrees just round the corner from CODE and there are many more cycle events throughout the year. 
  9. Finally - it's cheap, easy, fun, environmentally friendly and surprisingly efficient - did you know that you can cycle 9 miles using the calories of just one apple?!

What is CODE's Fire Safety Policy?

In light of the tragic fire in London we would like to make you aware of our fire safety procedures.

Our buildings are modern, having been constructed within the last 10 years and have been designed for your safety and built by a reputable construction company. They are fully compliant with fire safety regulations and are fire risk assessed. We have strict safety procedures including:

  • Weekly automatic opening vent testing
  • Safety Demonstration by the Leicester Fire Service at induction
  • Regular fire evacuation drills
  • Regular internal flat door inspections
  • Fire alarms systems are subject to two service visits per year
  • Monthly emergency lighting checks

How safe is my room?

Your room is very safe:

  • There's both heat & smoke detector fitted in every room for your safety.
  • The communal corridors are equipped with smoke detectors.
  • All door entry is key fobbed and all communal spaces have CCTV.
  • Our on-site staff are available at reception or patrolling the building 24 hours a day. Their job is to protect you and the building at all times.

  • If you discover a fire, call 999 immediately and ask for the Fire Service.
  • If a fire is detected, the fire alarm will activate. On hearing the alarm you must follow the instructions on the rear of your door. Do not run or stop to collect your belongings.

SOME GENERAL SAFETY TIPS...

  • All entrance doors to blocks are self-closing. However please ensure that these close and lock shut at all times.
  • Don't prop the doors open including fire doors

  • Be aware of strangers on the premises if you are not sure who someone is, ask them or alert the Office or Security Team
  • Lock your door when you are going out and keep it closed at other times
  • Do not to leave your cooking unattended

As ever your safety and welfare is of the utmost importance to us. If you're worried about the safety of any equipment in your room or the communal areas, please contact the Office or Security Team.


Do you have Parking available?

As we are in close proximity to the universities, which are only a short walk away there is no parking on site.

With the Universities and the City Centre so close by and excellent shops nearby we do not recommend bringing a vehicle at all but do suggest that you use a Bike as we have a secure Bike store and your Bike will be insured for Free.

For move in and move out we do offer managed parking arrangements for these periods only and details are communicated to you nearer the time.
