Payment

1. A student will pay a week's holding deposit to confirm their booking. This is not an extra fee but this goes into their first week's rent payment.


2. The bond deposit is four weeks' rent amount (eg. if rent is $400 per week then it will be $400 x 4) and this is payable to us 10 days prior to arrival. This amount is then lodged on behalf to the relevant state's bond authority and the bond authority will email the student directly to confirm that Scape Group has lodged the bond on behalf of the student.


3. After the confirmation of their booking, the student will have access to their portal/ student account. This will allow them to view everything in regards to their tenancy and also their contract is accessible for signing 8 weeks prior to their contract start date.

 
4. In regards to the rent payment frequency, they will only have two choices - fortnight rent payment or all upfront payment (prior to tenancy start). Should they choose the former option, they will have to fill in paperwork for a direct debit option.


International students can pay fortnightly or all up front when they arrive. A 1-week rent is required in advance to secure your room. Please note that this holding deposit is allocated to the first week’s rent amount, and is not an application fee or processing fee at all.

Cancellation Policy

We understand that students have lots of important things to focus on, so especially during these uncertain times, Atira are here to help make life less stressful. We have put together a deferral and cancellation policy for new bookings commencing in Semester 1, 2022 that provides flexibility if you are currently outside of Australia and impacted by COVID-19.

DEFERRAL

If you have a booking and are not able to arrive in Australia because of COVID-19, you can defer your contract to the following semester. The same terms of the original booking will carry forward to the new semester booking, including the type of room you booked and even the same weekly rent.

CANCELLATION

If you need to cancel your booking with us for one of the reasons detailed below, all you need to do is email us no less than 14 days before your contract start date and we will cancel your booking and provide a full refund of any fees paid. We will provide flexibility to defer or cancel if you are impacted by any of the below reasons, all you need to do is provide supporting documentation:

• Visa Denied

If your visa application is rejected or the visa centre remains closed in your respective country.

• Flight Cancellation/Travel Ban

If your scheduled flight is cancelled and an alternate flight is not available, or if there is a travel ban preventing travel from your country of origin or in Australia preventing you from arrival.

• Intake Delay of University/Education provider

If the start date of your course has been postponed to a later date or semester, or the university does not offer face-to-face learning.

I had an amazing time at Scape! The rooms are a little small, but the facilities and community made up for it. It's a great location in the CBD, friendly and helpful staff, the atmosphere felt safe, and there were lots of fun social events and free food. It was easy to make friends and have weekend travel getaways. There was also a gym and free shuttle service going to and from uni that I was very grateful for! Would definitely recommend to students. ?

I've booked here via Airbnb. Photos are very deceptive - we ended up getting with a disability bathroom which was not very pleasant to shower in. The bed was not comfortable as I could feel the springs in the mattress.

What to say about scape!!! the whole stay was nothing short of a brilliant experience. The staff are so helpful and go the extra mile every time, Bow, Stuart, Ben, Vernise, Kylie and everyone else were incredible. The place was always clean, we had a good size room with a fantastic view there was more than enough space and storage, the cooking facilities were of high calibre and all essentials. the bathroom was sparkling clean, which to me is very important. having the amenities like the cinema room, pool tables, table tennis and outside deck BBQ were a incredible bonus and we very much enjoyed the big screen on the Balcony. we were sad to leave at the end because of the entire experience, well done to everyone again its a class act.

This is my home away from home now. The unique pods (studios) in the heart of the city is what a person like me needs. I love the fact that I have got the opportunity live in the city’s skyline. Accessible everything that one wants just minutes away, Woolworths and Coles, train and tram stations, restaurants and pubs just across the road and RMIT University is again just across the road. With all these, I have found this as an ideal place to stay. About the services, round the clock concierge who are friendly and helpful. I would like to share some photos taken from my window.

My stay at Scape had been absolutely fantastic, and I'd recommend them to any family and friends who are undertaking a course in the vicinity of the CBD. Although I echo the concerns raised by some of the other reviews with regards to the higher price point, keep in mind that ALL utilities (bar laundry) are included as part of the package. It's also situated in a prime location, where Melbourne Central and various tram stops are literally a few steps away, making shopping extremely easy. Furthermore, the building features multiple study spaces, a few which you could reserve for private study sessions with your mates (although be sure to get in early, especially before the SWOTVAC rush!), as well as a cinema and gym. Additionally, there's a multitude of events held every month, most involving free food or trips, and is a great chance to meet people and make new friends. Finally, staff are always on-site, and are generally really friendly and helpful, and is what makes Scape stand-out from other similar student accommodations in my opinion. All in all, I'd say give Scape a try if you do plan on studying in Melbourne, as signing up with them doesn't involve jumping through hoops such as requiring references, unlike other leases. The agreement is presented in a easy-to-understand format, and the process is usually finished within the span of a day.
