Bookings made from 1st August for the forthcoming academic year have a 24-hour cooling off period. To cancel, email us.

Can I have pets?

Sorry, pets of any shape and sizes are not allowed.

Do I need a TV license?

Whether we supply the TV or you bring your own or watching it through 4TV or BBC iPlayer, you'll need to have a valid TV licence unless we tell you we're covering it. 

Am I allowed to have guests over?

We're all grown ups here, so of course, occasional overnight guests are allowed. Please don't invite someone to live more than three consecutive nights through, and always check with your flatmates first that they're okay with extra house guests.

Will my student flat be cleaned?

Your student room and any shared areas within your apartment will be spotlessly cleaned when you arrive, and some of our tenancies include complimentary cleaning throughout your time with us.

It is located centrally, close to good public transport links and other facilities, so you should be able to get around easily without a car.

How do I collect my post?

The post can be delivered directly to your door by Royal Mail or collected from on-site post boxes. Larger parcel deliveries are accepted at the reception, but we accept no liability for losses or damages.

No, your room is yours for the duration of your tenancy. You only need to move out of the room at the end of the agreement.

Will my room be inspected?

Your room/apartment will be fully inspected at least three times during your tenancy. During these inspections, we check for cleanliness, damage and for missing items. At each inspection, you will be told if there is to be a charge for putting anything right. You will be invoiced immediately for recharges for the first two inspections and on the final inspection, a deduction will be made from your deposit. The recharges for cleaning, damages and missing items can be found in the Tenancy Handbook.
