Frequently Asked Questions

Can I leave early and get the remainder of my rent back?

Unfortunately, you are committed under the licence agreement to pay the full rent, however if you decide you want to leave early please tell the managers of your site asap. We may have a waiting list of people that would like to take over your licence agreement which would then relinquish you from your contract. If you find a new Licensee, we'll let you out of your agreement from the day they move in, and refund you any unused rent that you've paid in advance (minus a 350 admin fee). We cannot refund your rent until you have found someone to take over your licence agreement, their booking is confirmed and they have paid the first instalment of their rent. 

 

What bills do I need to pay?

All utility bills (gas, electricity and water), WiFi and contents insurance for your belongings are all included. If you bring your own television or use one that is pre-installed in your room then you will have to buy your own TV licence. See www.tvlicensing.co.uk for further details.  If you cease to be a full time student during the occupation of your room then you will become liable for council tax. If the second occupant of a double occupancy room is not a student then they may also be liable for council tax. 

 

Can I transfer my booking to a different Student Castle?

Its possible that you'll be able to transfer from one Student Castle to another before moving in, but this completely depends on what we have available. If we can transfer you, your booking fee will move with your room but you'll be charged an admin fee of 100 and unfortunately we cant guarantee that you'll get the same sort of room. If you need to request a transfer, contact the site manager at your original Student Castle location.

 

Can I change my room?

If you'd like to change your room once you've moved in, well do our best to accommodate you (providing were not fully booked). Any moves will incur a 50 admin fee. If you've moved to a cheaper room, any excess rent youve already paid will be taken off the next instalment. If you've already paid for the whole year, well simply give you a refund of the difference.

 

What happens if my student loan is late and I cant pay my instalment on time?

The student loan shouldn't be late, however if there is a problem we will need a letter from the loan company showing amount and dates of payments and four week's advance rent before you move in in September. You can get in touch with the Student Loans Company here, but please keep us posted and we can help you.

 

How long is the contract?

Most of our contracts run for 51 weeks. Our site in Edinburgh offers 46 week contracts only.GuarantorIf you want to pay your rent in three instalments, youll need a UK-based guarantor. This is someone who lives and works in the UKand is willing to sign a contract saying theyll pay your rent if you fail to do so. We will run a credit check on your guarantor if they happen to fail well get in touch about what to do next. Your guarantor cannot be another student or a government. If you do not have a guarantor then youll need to pay your rent for the whole Licence Agreement in advance.

 

How much is my rent?

To find out how much each room costs, go to the location youre interested in and youll find all the details there.

 

What is included in my rent?

All your utility bills (including super-fast broadband and WiFi) are included, as is contents insurance for your room.

 

What happens if I cant make my payment on time?

Come and talk to us - we will always work with you to find the best way for you to pay your rent. If your payment is seven days late and we haven't heard from you, you'll be charged a 30 admin fee. 

 

Can I move in earlier or later than my Licence Agreement date if need be?

This depends if your room is ready, so its best to contact the scheme direct. You would need to pay for the extra days beforehand.

 

When do I need to pay?

For our sites in England, if you have a UK guarantor then you can pay in 3 instalments in September, January and April. The 1st payment will be due 12 days before your licence starts. If the 1st instalment of your Student Loan is paid after this date then we can accept a payment of 4 weeks rent 1 week before you move in, with the balance paid when you receive your loan. For our sites in Scotland, we can align payments with when you receive your Student Loan. Please contact us for further information. If you do not have a UK guarantor then payment will be due in full 12 days before you move in. 

 

Whens the latest I can book?

As long as there's a room available. We keep our site perfectly up to date so youll be able to see where our spaces are.

 

Can I choose my flatmates?

You can request to be in a room close to or within the same flat as your friends, however this is subject to availability. We will do all we can to accommodate your request. Subject to availability you may request to be in a single sex cluster flat for religious or cultural reasons. 

 

How do I open a bank account?

The UK has lots of banks, including National Westminster (NatWest), Barclays, RBS, Santander, HSBC and Lloyds. All of these offer special bank accounts for students, which usually include an interest-free overdraft. All high street banks have the same basic range of services savings accounts, credit cards, overseas cash transfers and so on but they offer different deals to attract new customers, so shop around to find your favourite. To open a bank account youll need to visit a branch of your bank (check to see if your chosen bank has a branch near your Student Castle) with the appropriate ID. Your passport, driving licence and one or two forms of proof of address (such as a bill or licence) will usually be enough. Bank accounts take a few days to get up and running, so try to open yours before you leave for university or make sure you have a credit card to keep you going when you arrive.

 

If I want to get a part-time job, where should I look for opportunities?

You'll find that your student union often has job adverts, and if you're looking for shop, bar or restaurant work you can usually spot Help wanted signs in the shop windows. Your local Job centre will also have opportunities simply head to the website and search by area.

 

How do I register with a doctor?

Most surgeries now offer online registration once youve found your local GP, check their website. Check with us too for any recommendations.

 

If I'm an international student can I open a bank account in the UK?

No problem you'll just need the same identification as other students. Take your passport, driving licence and at least one proof of address document such as a bill or licence. If you can get a letter from your bank at home recommending you, thats even better but you dont strictly need this, and you absolutely do need the ID mentioned above.

 

Is bedding included with the room?

No - however, you can purchase a bedding pack from us when you are making your booking and it will be unpacked and on your bed when you arrive.

 

Are there fridges in the rooms?

Yes each studio or flat kitchen has a fridge with freezer compartment.  Unfortunately, you cannot bring your own fridge as this would invalidate our insurance.

 

Do I need to bring any furniture?

All our rooms are all really well equipped with high quality furnishings that provide ample storage and comfort.
