FAQs

We've compiled a list of the questions we get the most. If you can't find the answer to your question, why not drop us an email?

CHOOSING A ROOM

We want to make sure you have the best experience possible when you come to live with us. That’s why, when you book, we ask you about your interests and your personal preferences regarding your living arrangements.

We will do everything we can to accommodate these preferences and will also help you connect with your new housemates before you arrive so there will always be a familiar face when you get here.

We have a range of cluster flats, and studios to choose from, please see our website or talk to one of our team for guidance.

Cluster flats are where between 5 and 8 students will share a kitchen and communal area between them. You will have your own bedroom and en-suite bathroom.

If you would prefer to have your own space, you can book a studio flat. A studio includes its own kitchenette, and you would not need to share any of your living experience.

You would still be able to socialise with other students in the common room downstairs.

If you’re still not sure which option would be best for you, drop us a line, or give us a call and we will be more than happy to help.

ROOM INCLUSIONS

The kitchens are well equipped with most items you will need for daily use, and even for those occasions when you invite friends around for supper. You will however need to bring small items such as toasters, smoothie blenders etc. For health and safety reasons we would recommend these are new or at least have an in-date PA test to confirm safe operation. We can arrange this locally if not an option for you. Should you require specific items for your personal health and safety, a small fridge in your room for example please let us know first so we can make sure the electrical infrastructure is not overloaded.  

Remember that you will need to bring pots, pans, utensils, crockery and cutlery, plus any additional items if you like to bake cakes, socialise with friends etc.  It is a good idea to have a bespoke/favourite design so you can recognise your own mug in the shared facilities!

Bedding isn’t provided unless it specifically says so on your booking. If you’d rather not carry bedding over with you, you can order it from us here and we’ll make sure it is in your room prior to your arrival .

Each of our room types is unique, but generally speaking you will get a bed, a study area with a desk and a chair, bookshelves, a wardrobe and lots of storage.

BOOKING

Of course, you can! We are always happy to accommodate friend cluster requests. Give us a call to check availability, then all you need to do is book your rooms as usual and drop us a line with your names so we can link your bookings together.

The easiest way to book a room is by following the simple step by step procedure online. If at any point in the booking process you get stuck just email us and we will help you.

To book, you’ll need a credit or debit card for your deposit fee. Please remember to ask permission if you’re paying with a card that doesn’t belong to you.

PAYMENTS

You can pay by debit card, credit card or bank transfer.

If you want to pay by instalment you must provide a UK based guarantor.

If you are an international student wanting to pay by instalment you will need to use our recommended guarantor partner Housing Hand.

You will need to pay the equivalent of one weeks rent (holding deposit) as part of the booking process to secure your room . You can pay by debit or credit card or bank transfer. 

Four weeks prior to your arrival you will be asked to pay your Tenancy deposit, this will be protected and held by the Government Approved Scheme, MyDeposits

10 day prior to move in we will send you a welcome pack and an invitation for paying your first rental instalment.

During the booking process you will have chosen how you wanted to pay your rent. This could be either payment of the full amount upfront or to pay us in instalments. If you choose to pay by instalments, you will need to provide a UK based guarantor or use our guarantor partner, Housing Hand.

PACKING & ARRIVING

If your room is available before your contract starts this is quite possible. Drop us a line​​​​​​​ and let us know when you would be arriving, so we can check this for you. The additional rent for this period will have to be settled before your arrival. 

Firstly, we recommend you check what is included in your room, kitchen and shared or private living space. Most of the essentials (like vacuum, brush, mops etc) are already included - so you don't need to bring these - but please check your specific property.

Once you’ve booked, we will help you choose a moving in slot. You can select this easily online too, check your emails closer to your move in date for the link.

WHILE YOU'RE WITH US

Yes!

We run welcome activities that will start online before you move in and moves into the common areas once you’ve arrived at your new home. We have a calendar of events to suit everyone’s taste. If big parties aren’t your idea of fun, you can come along to one of our silent study sessions or smaller coffee afternoons. Check your location’s social pages for a list of events coming up.

You cannot smoke in your room or anywhere within the accommodation. There are designated smoking areas outside which are clearly signposted.

We want you to make this your home, and we’d be delighted for you to stay with us over the summer. Let your local team know that you’re thinking of staying and they’ll help you with the arrangement.

We understand how important it is to know that you are safe and secure at home. That is why we provide a 24 hour staffed service : to provide a safe, secure and supportive environment for all our residents and to help them settle in and transition smoothly to independent living. 

Key to this service are our team members, whilst they are all SIA licensed and trained to provide the range of traditional security services like patrolling, access control, CCTV monitoring and First Aid, their training and role extends far beyond this.

Every day they provide a first point of contact for students, not only for incident reporting but to offer help and support with a whole range of sometimes complex and personal problems. Experts in conflict management, they can help with good order and noise issues and even mediate in problems between flat members, sensitively making sure that one person’s welfare is not affected by the “enjoyment” of another.

CLEANING

If you are in a cluster flat then you are responsible for cleaning your own room, en-suite shower room and the shared kitchen within the flat. If you are living in a studio, you are responsible for cleaning your own room, en-suite and kitchenette. All landlord and communal areas are cleaned by the site cleaner. You can ask for assistance and advise at any time should you have difficulty maintaining your area and keeping them clean and safe.

CANCELLATION

We recommend that if you are awaiting a visa or exam results to attend University you do not book until you have received these.

If after you have booked and confirmed your place you decide to withdraw you will need to find a replacement for your room.

FLAT MATES

We want to make sure you have the best experience possible when you come to live with us.

That’s why, when you book, we ask you about your interests and your personal preferences regarding your living arrangements.

We will do everything we can to accommodate these preferences and will also help you connect with your new housemates before you arrive so there will always be a familiar face when you get here.

We will accommodate requests for single gender accommodation, where we can. Let us know in the preferences section when you book with us and we will do our best to accommodate this for you.

We try and match you with people you have things in common with, so it’s very unlikely you wouldn’t get along with your housemates. If you are having problems, please come and talk to us and we will help you resolve any issues.
