All studio rooms have a TV but you will need to purchase your own TV licence. All kitchen areas in the Shared Flats come with a large TV and we are responsible for purchasing the TV licences.
The following rooms are suitable for double occupancy: Double Studio, Large Double Studio and Extra Large Double. If you are taking a double occupancy, then both of you must be full-time students, in a UK educational institution. Please note that double occupancy is charged at an extra £25 per week, on top of the weekly rate listed.
The Studio’s are self-contained so you have your own kitchen as well as an en suite bathroom. The en suite type rooms involve sharing a large kitchen/common area with up to 6 other students whilst having your own bedroom and en suite bathroom.
DDA rooms are designed so they can accommodate a student with a wheel chair – This means they have very large bathrooms and the room space is smaller than a non DDA room.
You can choose to pay the full amount or alternatively you can also pay in instalments. For the latter, you will need to provide a UK guarantor or use our guarantor service provided by our friend HousingHand.
If you are travelling with your son/daughter on the move in day, we will inform you in advance whether there’s a drop off bay on site to you to off load any suitcases or belongings, or we will send you the location of the nearest car park. It’s important for your son/daughter to book their move in slot with us in advance so that we can make sure these resources are available to you on the day.
We understand moving out from family can be daunting! Don’t worry, we are always here to help. We have teamed up with our friends at UniKitOut and are now pleased to offer a range of items including bedding packs, kitchen utensils and much more to be delivered to their room prior to their arrival.

If you cannot provide a UK based guarantor then you can either use our Guarantor Services or choose to pay the full year rent in one-go before you move into the accommodation.
