Cancellations

We hope you are as excited as we are about your stay with us and won’t need to cancel your room… But we know unexpected things can happen from time to time.

So, if you do need to cancel your contract:

Up to and including 45 days before the start of your tenancy

You can cancel at any time during this period, but there will be a reasonable administration charge.

Within 45 days of your contract start date
During the last 45 days before the start of your tenancy – you will only be able to cancel the contract if a suitable replacement tenant is found to take your place. Either you can find a suitable replacement tenant yourself, or we can find one for you. However, if it is left to us, we will only do this after all our other rooms have been let. In either case, there will be a reasonable administration charge.

Note: If no replacement tenant is found, you will be responsible for payment of the rent in full, even if you do not move into the property.

Tenancy Agreement

The Sample Tenancy Agreement details the terms and conditions of your contract with us.

TV Licence

If you are bringing a TV to watch live TV, or if you receive or record live TV programmes on any other device, such as a laptop, you will need a TV Licence. You won’t be covered by your parents’ licence.

Our TV licences only cover the TVs that we provide, for example in common rooms and lounge areas.

From September 2016, you’ll need a TV license to watch the BBC iPlayer.

For more information and to buy your licence, visit the TV Licensing website. There are a variety of payment plans available.

The TV licensing authorities recognise that most students do not need the final three months of a TV licence as you leave the accommodation during the summer. You may be able to receive a refund for this period, provided that you don’t need your licence again before it expires.

If you do not have a TV Licence but you receive or record live TV you could face prosecution from the TV Licensing Authority.

Laundry

Walker Street now benefits from LaundryView which will make doing your laundry on-site even easier. The system, created by Circuit, allows you to go online and check the availability of washers and dryers in your building as well as see when other washes are about to end. 

To get started with LaundryView, you first need to find your halls.

Circuit also offer laundry top-up cards which allow you to pay for your washing and drying in advance by paying online or using one of the on-site machines. You can then use your card to pay for washing and drying as well as top-up your card straight from your mobile phone using the Circuit app.

Ask our team where to get a top-up card and take a look at Circuit’s ‘how to use’ videos for more information.

At Sanctuary Students we offer specialist insurance cover for all of our students through Cover4Students.com.

All of our accommodation is covered as Basic Cover.

Basic Cover Explained
