Student Procedure

To secure a property we would request that you email the office to confirm your intentions and provide details of your group including full names, telephone numbers, email addresses and course details.

The property will be removed from our advertising as soon as all referencing forms are received and/or the admin charge has been paid to hold the property. Your application forms will usually take 5 working days to process and we will then make contact with you the request the standard deposit of £400.00 to be paid.
