Cancellation Policy

Bookings made before 1st August:

7-Day Cooling Off Period

If you decide to cancel your accommodation booking within 7 days of accepting your tenancy agreement, you will receive a full refund of your booking fee. 

If you secure your accommodation and then cancel it due to the following reasons: 

  • Failure to receive grades (all academic years)
  • Failure to obtain a VISA (all academic years)
  • Studying in an alternative City

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 none of the above reasons is applicable, you will be required to find a replacement person to take over your tenancy. Any bookings made after 1st August will have a 24hr cooling off period

After Cooling Off Period

Students can cancel after the cooling-off period for the following reasons: 

  • Failure to receive grades
  • Failure to obtain a visa
  • Studying in an alternative city
  • The pre-sessional English language course required to take up their university place is cancelled
  • Government travel restrictions prevent them from travelling to the UK.
  • They are enrolled on a face-to-face course, and the University delays the start of the course.

Bookings made on or after 1st August 2020

If you book your accommodation after 1st August 2020, your cooling-off period will reduce to 24 hours only from the point of acceptance. If you cancel your booking within these 24 hours, your full deposit will be returned. Should you wish to cancel after these 24 hours, the previous procedures will apply depending on your circumstances.

COVID Update

We will seek to delay the start of the tenancy for any new residents who were due to arrive in the UK, but cannot check-in because of flight cancellations, visa delays or travel restrictions. 

 For residents who have already checked in and can’t return to their Student Roost home because of the restrictions in the UK, we’re pleased to offer a discount of up to 6 weeks’ rent. This will largely affect UK domestic students, but may also affect some international students who travelled home for the holidays.

I stayed in Portsburgh Court during my first year and had such a great time there. The staff absolutely made the experience for me. They are always so enthusiastic and friendly. In particular John, Georgia, Emma and Daniel were always really kind and happy to help out. Thank you so much guys!

Did exactly what it said on the tin. Simple accommodation but clean. Rooms are student fayre so minimalist but large study desks and comfortable double beds. Shared kitchens well appointed and spacious. Laundry on site and common room. Don't expect TV. Learn to talk to each other again!

Management are uncooperative and generally not helpful, the building itself is run-down and the ventilation system antiquated. Mould was growing on the bathroom ceiling and walls. The location is good near the Toll Cross but, over all the cost for students is expensive and better value can be found in Edinburgh
