14 Day Cooling-off Period
You can cancel your booking by sending an email directly to the accommodation team within 14 days of signing your tenancy agreement. Should you decide to cancel your reservation within these 14 days you will receive a full refund of the deposit amount paid.
If you decide to cancel your reservation after the 14-day cooling-off period, and should any of the following events occur; the below process will come into effect.
• Your UK Visa application has been denied
• You have failed to obtain the required qualifications to get into your first University of choice
• You have failed to pass the relevant English Language course required for University • Deferment of your University place
If you secure your accommodation and then if for any of the reasons stated above are no longer able to attend your chosen higher education, official written evidence from the relevant University and/or UCAS and/or VISA authorities/embassy must be sent directly to the accommodation team within 5 calendar days of you receiving notification of the decision.
If sufficient evidence is provided and accepted by the accommodation team, you will be eligible to cancel your tenancy agreement without obligation and the full deposit will be returned.
• Government Travel restrictions to the UK prevent you from travelling
If you secure your accommodation and Government travel restrictions prevent you from traveling to the UK to enroll in your course at University, official written evidence from the chosen higher education provider confirming that you have cancelled your studies and will not be enrolled at the University for 21/22 academic year must be sent to the accommodation team prior to your tenancy start date. Once sufficient evidence is provided, you will be eligible to cancel your tenancy agreement and a full deposit returned to you.
You may request that the start date of your tenancy be deferred to the first day of the month in which the restrictions are lifted and you are able to travel to the UK. Your request will need to be submitted to the accommodation team prior to the tenancy start date. Once sufficient evidence is provided to the accommodation team we will amend your tenancy start date and send you confirmation of this.
