    • Our full termination policy is detailed for you within the booking section of our website. Please read it carefully and ensure that you fully understand it.

      You can cancel your booking up to 14 days after you accept your offer or pay your deposit (the Initial Cancellation Period), which reduces to 7 days from 1st August ahead of the academic year being booked, providing you have not already moved in to the property and we will refund your security deposit in full. Deposits will normally be refunded within 28 working days of cancellation, however our legal obligation as a landlord is to secure all deposits with a third party protection scheme. In the event that your deposit has already been sent to the protection scheme by the time you cancel your booking, your refund could take up to 60 days to be refunded due to the protection scheme’s processing period and your deposit refund will come directly from them – you will need your repayment ID which will be sent to you directly by the protection scheme. If the deposit has already been sent to the deposit protection scheme, unfortunately, we are unable to influence their processing time.

      If you cancel your booking after the 14 day Initial Cancellation Period (7 days after 1st August), you will remain liable for the weekly rent (for each and every week or part week) until we are able to re-let the room. If we are able to re-let the room we will release you from the agreement upon payment of a £50 variation of contract fee which we will recover by retaining part or all of your deposit. If you have paid a lower deposit amount, that’s the amount that will be retained.

      Keeping you and your possessions secured 

      We’ve teamed up with Cover4Insurance, to provide you with comprehensive insurance protection for possessions inside your room with us. 

      By partnering with Cover4Insurance, we’ve arranged contents insurance for all the students staying with us at no extra cost. 

      It’s important that you check your cover to ensure you understand what is and isn’t covered. 

      What is covered?  

      Basic cover insures your personal possessions on a new for old basis against theft (whether or not someone physically breaks into your room/flat), fire, burst pipes, storm, vandalism, flood, explosion and lighting. 

      This insurance will provide a range of cover for your possessions within your accommodation such as cover for your laptop, electrical goods, clothes, sports equipment and frozen food. 

      In the event of a claim, items will be replaced as new, regardless of age or condition (except clothing, linen and rented household goods where a deduction is made for wear and tear). 

      For more details, please consult your policy.  

      Can I extend my policy to cover other items? 

      Yes, you may find that you need more cover than is arranged already by us. 

      For example, you may wish to add Mobile Phone Insurance (as Mobiles are excluded from the basic cover). See the website for more details.  

      Where are you insured? 

      You are covered within your accommodation, or any place of residence at which you are temporarily residing and in direct transit to and from your home address at the beginning and end of each term.
