    FAQs

    Absolutely! Just ensure you include their names on your application and, availability permitting, we will allocate you all to the same cluster flat. Some of our properties also offer Dual Occupancy in Studio apartments, this means couples can live together and share the costs. Please contact the property if you would like further information.

    As part of your application you are asked if you have certain preferences in people you wish to share with, such as gender of flatmates. You can also add any other preferences on your application such as year of study etc. We cannot guarantee all preferences will be met and we will not discriminate when allocating rooms.

    No, we do not charge a booking fee, just a refundable deposit at the time of booking.

    The deposit is £250.00 and is payable at the time of making your application. After your 14-day cooling-off period your deposit will be held by a Deposit Protection Scheme. Details of which will be sent directly to you after your deposit has been lodged with them. This information is also listed with your Tenancy Documentation for you to sign upon booking.

    A guarantor is someone who will fulfill your contractual obligations if you fail to do so – this includes paying any rent or other monies owed to us if they are not paid by you. Your guarantor must be over the age of 18 and live in the UK. They must be financially capable of covering your payment commitments, if necessary. The guarantor must provide copies of a photo ID and proof of residence, dated within the last 3 months. This could be a utility or council tax bill.

    After you have made your booking and paid the deposit we will allocate you a room and send you tenancy documents to sign. If you are paying by installments then your guarantor will also need to sign. We need original signatures on this documentation, as it is legally binding. Therefore please post or hand deliver to the relevant property address. Please do not post to the landlord address of Manchester International Office Centre.

    If posting or handing to the site is difficult for you. For example, if you are overseas, then we will accept scanned copies to speed up the booking process. However, we must also receive the original signatures within 14 days. Failing to submit original signed Tenancy Documents will affect your booking and/or move-in process.
