If you secure your accommodation and then for the above reasons are no longer able to attend the affiliated University, official written evidence from the University (and/or UCAS/relevant VISA authorities) must be sent directly to the Property Team within 3 calendar days of the results or decision being published. If sufficient evidence is provided, you will be eligible for release from the tenancy agreement and the full booking fee will be returned.

If a replacement is found, you will be released from your tenancy agreement and Student Roost will return your booking fee in full. Please note that your booking fee will be retained, and you will remain liable for all accommodation fees until a replacement person is found.
