Do I need to take out contents insurance? 

No, you do not. Contents insurance is automatically included with your rent. When you arrive well provide you with details of the policy and, if you need anything extra adding to the cover, you can contact the provider to make an upgrade.

Can I connect to the internet? 

Absolutely. A super fast, 100mb internet connection is included in your rent and is available in every true bedroom and in all communal zones.

What happens if I have a maintenance problem? 

true has a dedicated caretaker team to respond to and solve your maintenance issues. We respond to every issue quickly and, if possible, will complete the repair during the first visit. Of course, this isnt always possible and there are times when parts need to be ordered or external contractors arranged. When this happens, well keep you updated on the progress.

If you need any further help, feel free to get in contact.

What does a fully fitted kitchen mean? 

true designs homes that provide everything you need to enjoy living with us. Our apartments and suites come kitted out with all your cooking appliances: cooker, hob, oven, fridge, and microwave.

Do I need to move out during the holidays? 

Your true contract is for a fixed length of time so your room is yours throughout that period. That means that you dont have the hassle of moving your belongings out during the Christmas or Easter vacations, and you can choose to stay in your property over these holidays if you want. Its usually possible to book additional accommodation over the summer period if you want to stay then too. But we advise booking early to ensure rooms are available.

When is the Welcome Hub open? 

The Welcome Hub is open 9am - 6pm every day. If a member of the team isn't there, just call the number at the desk and someone will assist you.

We also have a highly skilled maintenance team available around the clock. Theyre there to resolve any maintenance issues quickly and efficiently keeping the site safe and secure.
