What happens if I can't pay my rent?

Please make sure you view the payment plan before accepting your room to make sure that you will have sufficient funds to support yourself whilst at university. If you find yourself in financial difficulty we urge you to come and speak to us as soon as possible, so that we can discuss your issues and put you in touch with the appropriate support. We take non-payment of rent seriously and if left unattended can lead to eviction from the premises.

What happens if I need to leave the accommodation before the contract has ended?

The contract is for a minimum of 42 or 50 weeks, depending on your contract. If you leave early you will still be liable for rent for the life for the agreement. It may be possible to release you from your contract if we are able to find a suitable replacement for your room.

Will I have to pay Council Tax?

In the UK students are currently exempt from Council Tax. Any person who ceases to be a student but does not immediately leave would be liable for Council Tax if it becomes due.

Is it possible to share a flat with my friends?

Yes, you have the option to search for roommates and invite them to share a flat with you or you can accept a random selection based on you profile.

Please note that roommate requests, and all selectable housing options, must be mutual to be honoured. While we try to accommodate preferences, not all requests can be honoured.

Is it possible to choose my room?

You have a chance to select a room that works for you from our available beds. Whilst we will do all we can to offer you the room of your choice we do retain the right to offer an alternative equivalent room for general administrative purposes.

How do I apply for accommodation?

You can apply online for accommodation via our portal. You will need you student ID to apply, this can be found on your University offer letter.

After applying, when will I be offered a room?

Your application will be processed when you have met all the conditions outlined in your University offer letter. You will then have 7 days to accept the accommodation we have offered. This will be done on a first come, first served basis. Please note we do not guarantee that all applicants will be offered a room.

Do you have a catering service?

Each apartment includes a self contained kitchen; therefore we do not provide catering services. Catering facilities are available on the University campus.

Will I have to sign a contract?

You will need to sign a contract/Licence Agreement for a minimum of 42 weeks. This is a legally binding document. We do not offer short-term contracts but 50 week contracts are available. Please contact the accommodation office if you would like to stay for longer.

Will I have to pay anything in advance?

You can secure your room for just £550. This comprises a £200 refundable security deposit, a £50 administration fee and an upfront £300 rental fee installment.

Will my deposit be refunded if I cancel my booking prior to my arrival?

If you would like to cancel your booking before arriving at the Student Village, you will need to inform us in writing. We will return the £200 security deposit to you in full as long as we can re-contract your room. If we cannot re-contract your room immediately you are still liable for charges until we do so. As we would have incurred administration costs, we would be unable to return the £50 administration fee.

What happens if I leave the accomodation before the contract has ended?

The contract is for a minimum of 42 or 50 weeks and if you leave early you will still be liable for the full term of the contract. It may be possible to release you from your contract if we are able to find a suitable replacement for your room.

Am I allowed to bring a television?

Yes, you are more than welcome to bring your own television. You would also need to buy your own television licence. Information on this can be found at www.tvlicensing.co.uk. However, you may wish to check that you can receive a valid reception before buying your licence and installing your TV.

IPTV is available in all halls. Residents can access this service for a small additional charge.

What household items do I need to bring with me?

The bedroom will have a single or double bed (depending on your room type) desk with chair, wardrobe and curtains. You will need to bring your own bedding, cooking utensils, plates and cutlery.

You may want to wait until you meet your flatmates as you may be able to buy some items together like kettles and toasters. We even have our own vtore where you can purchase all of your essentials and we have them waiting for you to arrive

Depending on the reason for a transfer, Room Moves/Swaps may be subject to an administration fee of £30. Transfers can not take place between Fitzroy and Wenlock Courts and other properties in the Village.

A resident being happy in our accommodation is extremely important to use at the Village and we work with residents to solve any issues or concerns.

Can I bring my pet?
