Frequently Asked Questions

contract lengths are usually for 51 weeks from September. 

Can I get a contract shorter than 51 weeks?

Most of our contracts are for 51 weeks, with 41 weeks available at Wembley and 40 available at Bloomsbury. We do have some rooms available for summer 2019 at our Wembley and Bloomsbury residence with a mixture of rooms available from the 29/06/2019. Occasionally, we might have a room become available across one of our other properties. 

Do I have to pay a damage deposit?

Yes, a 250 deposit is payable for each room. The full deposit must be paid by the time you check in and is secured by the Deposit Protection Scheme (DPS). You will receive an email confirmation from DPS when the deposit is registered.

What does my damage deposit cover and when will I get it back?

The damage deposit is registered with the DPS and covers any damage you may cause to your room; this excludes normal wear and tear. It is refundable at the end of your stay with us and usually received within 28 working days as long as there are no damages or outstanding rent. You will receive an email from DPS confirming when your deposit is ready to be return.

Do I have to pay council tax?

Full time students in the UK dont have to pay council tax, however you have to provide us with a certificate to show your status as an exempt student.

Are meals included?

We do not provide meals in any of our locations, however there is a cafe/ restaurant on the ground floor of Scape Mile End called The Kitchen, which offers a range of food and drink for reasonable prices.

Do you allow pets?

No, sorry! 

Do I need to be 18 years of age or older?

To stay at all of our properties including The Pad and Podium you will need to be over 18 when you move in.

Do I need to bring any documentation for check-in?

Yes, when you arrive and check in you will be asked to provide photo ID. This can be a driving license, passport or any form of photo ID that shows your full name and date of birth.

What are check-in times?

Providing there are no outstanding fees, check-in times are generally Monday-Sunday 2pm 8pm. If there are any outstanding payments, please try to make these prior to arrival or make sure your arrival is between Monday-Friday 2pm 5pm and you are able to make all the necessary payments before checking in.

How do I check out?

In the week before your contract end date, you will be asked to organize a room inspection for any damages. Once this is done, you just need to return your keys (room, post box and safe box) to reception and we can check you out. 

When do I get my deposit back?

This will be returned at the end of your tenancy. Once you have departed the property, your damage deposit will be processed with the DPS who will email you separately about the return of your deposit. We aim to process all deposits within 28 working days.

Can I have guests stay overnight?

Is it a safe area?

London is a major city, and we do advise students to follow general safety precautions. That aside, all our buildings are equipped with 24 hour security and reception, CCTV and key fob entry which allows students into the building at night, their corridor and then their room. Guildford and Brighton is a smaller place although you should still follow the same advice.
