Introducing Student Roost’s new Semester Stays

Introducing Student Roost’s new Semester Stays

You asked, and we listened! We’re proud to unveil our new Semester Stays, now available in great rooms across a wide range of our properties in most major UK university cities.*

What’s a semester stay, you ask? Its basically a short-term contract of around 16 weeks, allowing you to stay with us for just one university semester. Afterwards, you’re free to leave! They are particularly useful for international exchange or Erasmus students who are only in town for one term, those who need a place to live quickly while alternative accommodation is being sorted elsewhere, or even those on a budget who would like to have a taste of student life away from home, without committing to a full year’s rent!

You’ll enjoy all the same features as the rest of our full-year tenants including no rent to pay until October†, flexible payment terms and our fantastic social calendar. The best part is that all our on-site amenities are yours to use as much as you like, in some of our properties this includes gyms, cinema rooms and hosting kitchens.

Semester lets are still quite rare and not every student accommodation provider offers them, despite their increasing popularity thanks to the many great exchange programs run by universities.

If you need student accommodation but you don’t need it for the whole year, we’d love you to stay. Just select the ‘Semester Stays’ option when booking your room online, or call us on +44 (0)121 752 7909 and we’ll take care of it for you.
