Frequently Asked Questions

Who can book a student studio?

You can book a studio at our city centre locations if you are a student aged 18 and over and in full time education, whether studying a Pre-sessional, Undergraduate or Postgraduate course, for the length of your studies.

Each property has a range of studio types, guaranteed to suit most students requirements. Choose the perfect location, either in Southampton, Winchester or Portsmouth and make the most of your University years.

If you are interested in viewing a studio then you can easily arrange a viewing in person or online. We aim to make it as simple and hassle free to book with us and our team will be delighted to accommodate your most suitable times.

How do I cancel or re-arrange my viewing?

Plans can change and we understand it is important to allow sufficient time to view your future home. We will be only too happy to cancel or re-arrange your viewing at either Winchester, Southampton or Portsmouth.  

Can I book a studio without having viewed?

Of course, booking the perfect studio is a simple process and can be done online in just a few minutes. We recommend that you have a look at our virtual 360 tours. It is a very useful tool to immerse yourself in the building and see the different locations and studio types from your desktop, tablet or smartphone here.

For the ultimate virtual viewing experience why not use Google Cardboard to explore everything we have to offer.

If you prefer to take a personal guided tour we can also arrange live Skype or Facetime viewings, simply contact us and let us know when is most convenient for you. If you arrive and change your mind, we will do our best to accommodate you but subject to availability and additional administration charges.

Are pets allowed?

 Unfortunately in the buildings we do not allow pets, the exception being assistance dogs. Please let our team know at the time of booking. 

How long is the contract?

We have a limited number of Studios with flexible terms available (from as little as 1 week) so you can choose the term that suits you best. Our typical contract is 51 weeks and we will be happy to discuss more flexible arrangements if required. 

Remember, you take advantage of All-inclusive billing - easy and simple. 

How do I pay?

Once youve made the easy decision to live in one of our studios, to confirm your booking we ask you to pay a deposit with the first months rental payment. You can then have a few options of how you would like to pay your rent:

  • Upfront in one go, this includes all administration charges and youll benefit from a 2% discount on your total rent
  • Termly payments - Payment dates usually coincide with the Student Finance UK payments, so it makes budgeting easier. 
  • Monthly payments (if you have a UK guarantor), just speak to our Sales Team and we can explain what additional documents will be needed.

We accept payments by Bank transfer, debit or credit card and have partnered with ''TransferMate' who offers a free currency exchange service with very competitive rates, guaranteed to lowering your transaction fees

How much will the deposit be?

When you confirm your booking you will be asked to pay a 300 refundable bookings deposit, which will be converted into your refundable security deposit when you move in. Your refundable security deposit is protected by MyDeposits, a UK government recognised scheme. Ask your House Manager for more details. 

What is the Tenancy Deposit Protection Scheme?

 The Tenancy Deposit Protection (TDPS) is a piece of legislation introduced by the UK Government in April 2006 for landlords in England and Wales. The purpose of the scheme is to protect tenants from unscrupulous landlords, who have been accused in the past of taking amounts from deposits unfairly.

The legislation ultimately protects you and allows us to follow a very streamlined process for disputes after check out.

When do I get my refundable deposit back?

At the end of your tenancy, assuming the studio and its belongings are in the same condition as when you moved in and youve paid all your rent, your deposit will be refunded within 10 working days.

To speed up the process let us know if you plan to leave your accommodation early and ensure we have the correct bank details.
