A booking can be cancelled up to and including 31st July of the year when the student was due to move in. The booking fee is non-refundable.

3. Extenuating circumstances e.g.: ill-health, family circumstances
Evidence of a) or b) should be supplied to iQ Student Accommodation within 72 hours of receiving official confirmation.
Where the reason for cancellation can’t be proved in line with the above, the student will remain liable for the full contractual rent, unless and until a replacement tenant is found.

If a replacement tenant is found, the student will be released from the contractual obligations laid out in the Tenancy Agreement and any rent money will be refunded. The booking fee will be retained.
