How to apply
Remember, the email address you give us is the easiest way for us to contact you. We’ll be sending you an e-contract as well as updates and arrival information during term time and holiday periods. We wouldn’t want you to miss out on anything!
You’ll need to provide us with your guarantor's personal details - someone who is legally obliged to pay the rent if you can’t. This person must be over 18 years old, in full-time employment and a UK resident and homeowner. Remember, you’ll need to get their consent before providing us with their details.
If you do not have a suitable guarantor, payment will need to be made in full. Please contact the office staff to arrange this.
When you accept your offer of accommodation you’ll need to pay a £1 contact fee to secure your room and set up a recurring card payment relating to your chosen rent instalments.

Take a look at our checklist below to make sure you’ve remembered everything:
- Have you returned your Guarantor Deed and proof of address?
- Have you sent in two passport sized photos of yourself?
When you arrive at either the Ridings or North Western Hall to collect your keys please make sure you remember to bring some photographic ID (either a passport or driving license is fine).
Please let us know in advance if you’re going to be arriving outside of our opening times by calling us on 0870 600 4777 so we can make arrangements for your keys to be left with the security guard. It’s important that you do this as otherwise your keys will be securely locked away over night.
Parking and luggage
We only have limited parking facilities and a permit is required to park on the surrounding streets so you’ll need to use local car parks. You’ll be allowed to park outside the building for a limited time only and then you’ll be asked find an alternative place to park.

You can move out before the end of the tenancy but you will still be responsible for paying your rent up until the end of your tenancy agreement unless a replacement tenant can be found and is approved by us. In this case you will incur an administration fee of up to £50 plus any cleaning charges. You will also need to pay your rent until the replacement tenant has moved in. Please see our cancellation policy below and your tenancy agreement for details.
The distance selling regulations and your rights to cancel this agreement
Your accommodation has been selected by you via the internet, and therefore the distance selling regulations will apply to this agreement. The following cancellation rights will apply:
Seven days after confirmation of this agreement
The Distance Selling Regulations entitle you to cancel this agreement without penalty during seven working days starting from the date after you confirm this agreement (the statutory cancellation period).
The statutory cancellation period will apply from whenever you confirm this agreement. However you will not be able to cancel on this basis after you have moved into the property, so if you confirm this agreement during the last seven days before you move in, your cancellation period will be shorter.
If you wish to cancel this agreement after the statutory cancellation period, the following additional rights will apply:
Up to and including 45 days before the start of your tenancy
You can cancel at any time during this period, but there will be an administration charge of £50.
During the last 45 days before the start of your tenancy – you will only be able to cancel this agreement if a suitable replacement tenant is found to take your place. Either you can find a suitable replacement tenant yourself, or we can find one for you. However if it is left to us, we will only do this after all our other rooms have been let. In either case there will be an administration charge of £50.
Note: If no replacement tenant is found, you will be responsible for payment of the rent in full, even if you do not move in to the property.
Cancellation / Refunds
If you wish to cancel this agreement, you should let us know as soon as possible. Written cancellation / refund requests should be made to the Accommodation Office at The Ridings. Refunds are normally processed within 14 working days.

Applying for your student visa
Your handbook contains all the essential information you'll need to know when you move in with us.
The Sample Tenancy Agreement (PDF 122KB) details the terms and conditions of your contract with us. A full contract will be available to download from the University website once you accept your agreement.
If you are bringing a TV to watch live TV, or if you receive or record live TV programmes on any other device, such as a laptop, you will need a TV Licence. You won’t be covered by your parents’ licence. Our TV licences only cover the TVs that we provide, for example in common rooms and lounge areas.
For more information and to buy your licence, visit the TV Licencing website. There are a variety of payment plans available.
The TV licensing authorities recognise that most students do not need the final three months of a TV licence as you leave the accommodation during the summer. You may be able to receive a refund for this period, provided that you don’t need your licence again before it expires.
If you do not have a TV Licence but you receive or record live TV you could face prosecution from the TV Licensing Authority.
