Frequently Asked Questions

What communal spaces do you have?

We know making new friends is a must! Thats why we offer great communal spaces where you and your neighbours can get to know each other. Facilities are site specific however each property guarantees a fun-packed and fully inclusive social calendar for all our students to enjoy, all year round free of charge! Visit our individual property pages to find out what each Roost has to offer.

Some studio rooms offer dual occupancy - can my friend come to live with me?

Yes! Check with the property about whether your studio room is eligible for dual occupancy, but please note that both students who wish to book the room as a joint tenancy MUST be students.

What if I have a disability or special requirements?

Their top priority is making sure you have a comfortable and safe stay, so please declare any medical information or disabilities on your application. All offer rooms types with additional and accessible facilities. When creating your application, please make sure you tick the DDA box and enter in as much detail as possible so our teams can ensure you reserve the most suitable Roost for your requirements.

What is the difference between bronze, silver, gold and platinum rooms?

How big it is. Specifically the floor space. Each room has the same furniture, features, and decor, but it will differ in size. There are some exceptions; at John Bell House for example, the rooms are categorised using a mix of reasons such as location and layout as well as size. Some rooms look and feel bigger/smaller because of their shape so weve taken this into consideration when categorising them.

How close is my accommodation to the university?

All of the properties are convenient, central, locations. Whether its close to your campus depends on where youre studying! Check out the relevant property page on this website or get in touch with the on-site property team for details. All of our cities have excellent transport links and secure bike storage if you dont fancy walking.

Do we provide the TV license in the shared flat kitchen?

We do not provide any TV Licenses for the studios or shared flats so youll need to register for your own TV licence.

Can I change rooms if I dont like mine?

It would be possible if someone drops out or someone else wants to swap with you. Please contact your property team and they will do their best to accommodate your needs. Remember that all rooms are effectively the same apart from the floor space.

What should I bring with me to live at a property?

Bedding is not provided unless included in an offer (check with or teams), so bring a sheet to cover the mattress, a duvet and pillows. 

What is covered by my insurance policy?
