Booking Details

Cancellation Policy


Once your Tenancy Agreement is accepted, up to the 31st July we operate a 72 hour cooling off period. To cancel your booking you need to email the Accommodation Manager within 72 hours of signing your Tenancy Agreement. 


From the 1st August the cooling off period is reduced to 24 hours.

Once the Cooling Off period has expired, you can cancel your booking if:


You do not have a visa to enter the UK

You have not acquired the grades to be offered a place at the chosen university

You have failed to achieve the grades to continue your study at university


In these circumstances, you can cancel your booking prior to the tenancy start date by providing evidence to the Accommodation Manager within 72 hours of being notified. To cancel your booking under these circumstances, please send your UCAS notification/ Visa refusal documentation to the Accommodation Manager within 72 hours of receiving it.

In addition, you may cancel your tenancy agreement prior to the tenancy start date if Covid-19 related travel restrictions prevent you arriving at the accommodation / being able to travel to the UK to take up occupation of your accommodation. Written evidence from the World Health Organisation or Government of your country of origin must be submitted to the Accommodation Manager within 72 hours of the restriction being put in place.

It may be possible with the Landlords agreement to transfer your obligations to someone else who would be eligible to live at the property. This arrangement is known as a Tenancy Takeover. Once the new person has signed and accepted to take over all your obligations are you then released from your obligations to pay the rent and other terms of the Tenancy Agreement.



Flexible Tenancy Start Dates


We will agree a new tenancy start date without penalties or additional costs in the event that your Higher

Education Institution confirms in writing that due to COVID-19 they are postponing on-campus face to face teaching by more than 3 weeks up to a cut-off date of 30th January 2021.

In order to qualify, you will need to demonstrate that your Higher Education Institution has officially delayed the start of the academic on-campus teaching by more than 3 weeks and request an amended tenancy start date in writing to the Accommodation Manager before the 31st August 2020.

Once verified your revised tenancy start date will be a minimum of 7 days prior to the commencement of your 2020/21 on-campus teaching. All tenancies will start on a Saturday.

You will not be liable for rent between the original start date and the amended start date as long as you are not living at the property during that period. The cost of these weeks will be credited to your account. For this reason an updated Tenancy Agreement will not be issued.

Your tenancy start date can be extended up to Saturday 30th January 2021 if the start of on-campus teaching is delayed until that point due to COVID-19.

Payment Details

Your Tenancy Deposit of 150 is due 9 days prior to your tenancy start date and is refundable at the end of your

tenancy, less any deductions for damages or charges due.


Payment Due Dates

The first instalment and Tenancy Deposit are respectively due 10 and 9 days before your stated tenancy start date.

The subsequent instalments are due on 03 October 2020, 09 January 2021 & 09 April 2021.


Full Payment Discount

Monthly Payment Plans

Students who can demonstrate they receive their accommodation funding via a monthly bursary can arrange with

the local accommodation team to pay their rent in monthly instalments.
