Cancellation Policy

Can I cancel my booking?

If you accept an offer of accommodation online or by signing a Tenancy Agreement, and then decide you wish to cancel outside of the Initial Cancellation Period, the following applies:

  • You remain liable for the weekly rent (for each and every week or part week) until you are able to find another tenant that is acceptable to Homes for Students (it is your responsibility to find another tenant) and we are able to re-let the room
  • If we are able to re-let the room we will release you from the agreement upon payment of a £250 release fee which we will recover by retaining your deposit (which will not, therefore, be returned). If you have paid a different amount as a deposit (such as £150) then this is the amount that will be retained.

1st Year Applicants Only

If you are a prospective student and your offer of a place at your preferred University/Higher Education Institution is withdrawn by the University/Higher Education Institution, you may be eligible to be released from this agreement.

To apply to be released from the agreement you will need to provide:

  • Written confirmation that you wish to cancel your reservation.
  • Supporting evidence from the University or UCAS.

Special conditions

You can terminate your tenancy agreement if you have an existing medical condition and this is recorded on your application prior to a room offer being made. We will require medical proof with your application and you will be liable for a minimum of 4 weeks’ rent or to the end of the current rent period, whichever is longer.

Great place to live in. Lots of light and very spacious. If there is any help you need plenty of staff to help you out. Tony, the maintenance guy is amazing! If you have any issues just need to email the reception and he will sort it out straight away. And plenty of flat competitions to be part of as well as free goodies!

Perfect accommodation during my second year, couldn't ask for a better location for De Montfort University. The accommodation felt safe with pleasant staff which were always willing to help! Facilities in each flat are some of the best I have seen, and parking is available right outside the building. Would highly recommend to any students looking for accommodation for the next academic year.

It is the second year I am living in Zip building, and they are lovely. They have been taking care of me very well during my self-isolation. Sue and the team are amazing and really helpful they will do their best to sort out any problem.

This is my second year living under the same management, and they are amazing. They look after the students so well any problems they are sorted as quickly as possible. The zip building itself is such a lovely student accommodation and is really easy to make it look and feel like home.

This is my first time living at the Zip, so far any teething problems have been resolved very quickly. Tony has been fantastic to sort anything I've mentioned and turns up when he's agreed to. Very simple maintenance issue reporting system too.
