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you are a prospective student and your offer of a place at your preferred University/Higher Education Institution is withdrawn by the University/Higher Education Institution, you may be eligible to be released from this agreement.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

I can't thank Pammy enough for all of her help with securing some accommodation for my son's summer internship at the university. She truly went above and beyond to make this work and I will be forever grateful. The accommodation looks amazing and he's looking forward to it but, before he even gets there, I really just wanted to express my gratitude for the incredible customer service shown by Pammy at Homes for Students East Shore. Couldn't recommend more highly.

I stayed at east shore my first year at the university of St. Andrews. The accommodation was great and the location is stunning. Everything is clean and new, and there are available cleaning supplies (ie. vacuum/ dustpan/etc). All my flat mates were great and very kind, and the staff is very accommodating and helpful. Highly recommend.

Nice view and quite place. I have a standard en-suite at East Shore. The room size is same as the one in the university dorm Powell Hall. The price is cheaper! As a tread off, you will need to share the kitchen area with more people. I don’t cook a lot, so it is okay for me. East shore is a bit far away from campus, but there’s buses. It takes me around 20 mins one way to get to the chemistry building everyday.

East Shore ticks all the boxes; 100 metres from East Sands beach, cheerful staff; modern/refurbished amenities; a secure car park etc. I've lived as a postgrad in a standard ensuite room in Daly House, ES, for almost a year, and I'm confident that this accommodation is right up there with the best around St Andrews, if not the very best on a value for $ basis. Having also lived at Homes For Students' St. Leonards in Lancaster for two years during undergrad, I was very pleased to experience similarly reliable service and quality at East Shore. It's not worth taking risks with smaller landlords. Our kitchen is spacious. Common room completely fitted (though due to COVID-19 we haven't used it). No shortage of cycle storage. Mail held conveniently at reception, couriers have no trouble finding this place. 15 minute walk to the town centre. Very glad I chose East Shore. Easy five stars.

East Shore is by far the best accommodation you can find in St Andrews. First, because it is less expensive than the university halls, we have a LOT of space, individual bedrooms with individual bathrooms too and a huge common room with a TV and everything necessary. Then, we have the beach in front of us, which is absolutely wonderful and offers: beautiful sunrises and sunsets, funny bonfires with your friends, and walking by the sea to go to the university. What else? You are in a building with people of your grade, and from flatmates you become a real family. It gives the occasion to meet wonderful people and opportunities to gather together, live adventures together ... You are never alone! For the rest, the reception and the people working there are true gems, always here to help, talk or whatever you want... You also have everything for the laundry, the town is 20 mn by walk and buses across the street! New building, clean ... we even have 'competitions' for Halloween or Christmas decorations or other events to entertain us! on the whole, I can only recommend it, it is a second home rather than an accommodation so do not hesitate!
