    We do not take parental responsibility for occupants under the age of 18. All tenants at our properties in England and Wales must be over 17 during the academic year, and tenants in Scottish properties must be 16 or over. Exceptions to this rule can be made in specific cases through prior arrangements. If uncertain, please contact your preferred site, and the team will provide guidance.

    If you plan to bring a TV, ensure that your room has a TV point, and the TV size doesn't exceed 21". Wall mounting is not allowed, so the TV should be free-standing. While we provides TV licenses for communal areas, you'll need to purchase your own if you bring a personal TV. Confirm with your site team if you're unsure.

    For details on licensing requirements for catch-up TV and online streaming, refer to your resident handbook, consult your site team, or contact TV Licensing.


    Certainly, most sites offer a secure bike store, free for all residents. Upon arrival, you'll need to register and tag your bike with our team.

    Limited parking, including disabled parking bays, is available at some sites. Generally, given the proximity to universities and local amenities, a car may not be necessary. If you wish to arrange parking, contact your site team promptly, as available spaces are likely to be reserved quickly.

    Unfortunately, pets are not allowed, except for residents requiring the assistance of a trained and registered Service Dog or Assistance Dog. Requests for emotional support animals prescribed by a licensed mental health professional are considered on a case-by-case basis.

    Certainly, we offer free dual occupancy for a limited number of our studios where both residents are students. You can indicate your preference for dual occupancy during the booking process, and the availability will be shown on the room selection floorplan. Both you and your partner must be students, and you'll need to sign our tenancy agreement.

    No, accommodation is strictly non-smoking. Smoking is permitted only in designated outdoor areas to avoid any inconvenience to fellow residents.
