Tenancy Agreement

The Sample Tenancy Agreement (PDF 482KB) gives you an idea of the terms and conditions of your contract with us. Your full contract will be available to download from the university website once you have accepted your agreement.

TV licence

You may want to bring a TV with you for your room and please feel free to do so, but please remember if you will be watching live TV or receive or record live TV programs, you will need a TV license. This applies to all other devices you may watch TV on too such as laptops and iPads. You won’t be covered on your parents’ license or our licenses as they over cover the TV’s we provide in common rooms and lounge areas. You now also need a TV license to watch BBC iPlayer.

To find out more, look at payment plans or to buy your license, visit the TV Licensing website

The authorities do recognise that most students do not need the final three months of a license as you leave our accommodation during the summer, so you may be able to receive a refund for this period if you don’t need it again before it expires.

Remember, if you do not have a TV license and you receive or record live TV, you could face prosecution from the TV Licensing Authority.

Laundry

We know washing your clothes can be a boring chore, so we use Circuit Laundry Systems at Moor Lane Halls to make it as quick and easy as possible. All you need to do is purchase a top-up card to pay for your washing and drying in advance either online or using one of the on-site machines. Or why not download the Circuit app, you can top your card up straight from your phone making it even quicker and easier.

Ask our team about getting a top-up card and there are plenty of ​​​​​​Circuit’s ‘how to use’ videos for more information.

Insurance

We want to ensure you are covered during your stay with us. That’s why we offer specialist insurance cover for all of our students through ​​​​​​Cover4Students.com. All accommodation is covered under Basic Cover Insurance. Wondering what that means? Let us explain:

All your possessions, desktop and laptop equipment are insured for theft, fire, flood, burst pipes, storm, vandalism, explosion and lightning. Cover applies within your accommodation, in temporary residence and in transit at the beginning and end of each term.

This is just a summary and does not describe all the terms and conditions of the policy and does not form the contract between you and the insurance provider, so please take the time to read the policy wording thoroughly on the Cover4Students website to make sure you fully understand the cover provided.
