Mezzino understand that friends like to stay together. Therefore if you are applying as a group please: Make it clear on the application form of the names of your group; Size of apartment you require; Talk to your accommodation team early as many buildings sell out quickly. Then we will do the rest!

Many of our residents are returning students who just don't want to leave us. If you choose to stay for more than one year we often offer an early booking incentive. We can't prioritise when we're handing out rooms though, so apply as early as you can to improve your chances. And if you are staying we can give the rooms a thorough inspection, clean them and attend to any maintenance ready for when you return.

We collect your rent four times a year in August, October, January and April. This allows you to avoid paying one big lump sum and also coincides with the issue of loan payments. Some of our sites require you to provide a guarantor, if appropriate, you'll be provided with details when you enquire about booking.

As part of our Accommodation Team we employ several students at each of our sites to take on emergency call outs, post, administration support, student support duties. These roles are vital and contribute to forming a happy community at all our buildings. If you would like to become part of our Accommodation team, gain valuable experience and get paid to live at our building then forward a copy of your CV to your local Accommodation Manager who will be happy to provide a Job Description and remuneration details.

Great! Mezzino offers the opportunity for students to stay on over the summer. There are restrictions in terms of date and availability however if you speak with the local accommodation team they will advise you on availability and how you can book.
