Do I have to pay a deposit?

You don't have to pay a deposit but we do ask for a rent prepayment of £400 to secure your place. This will be deducted from the first term rent installment. 

Do I need a guarantor?

No, you don’t need a guarantor to secure your accommodation with us.

Is my Occupancy Agreement legally binding?

Once signed, you can't move out without our permission. If you do, you remain responsible for payment of rent until someone else takes your room.

What will happen if I sign an Occupancy Agreement but don't turn up?

You will lose £200 from your rent prepayment.

What will happen if I withdraw from my course after I move in?

The Accommodation Office can release you from your contract following a 4-week notice period, so you won’t be liable for the remainder of the contract. Confirmation of your withdrawal must be provided.
