We’re sure you have some questions so take a look at our most asked…
It’s absolutely right to have lots of questions about living with Here!… here’s the best place to start quizzing us on how to book and what living with us is really like.
Simply click the book button on the room type you want. This will take you directly to the Fresh website where you can create an account or sign in. Once you’ve done this, just follow the instructions on the screen. If you have any issues or questions, please get in touch with the Residence Team at your chosen location.
Absolutely! You can choose the floor, flat and room numbers should you wish to. Our Residence Teams can advise you on the best room to suit your needs.
Of course. For locations with cluster flats, booking with your friends can easily be arranged. You just need to let us know who you want to live with and we can make sure you live together.
When booking your room you can see your flatmates’ gender, what year they’re in and where they’re studying. We don’t give out names for data protection, but you can always use our Facebook pages for each location to find and chat with your flatmates before you move in.
Around four weeks before the big day, you will be invited to book a move-in slot. You can choose the time that works best for you. If you have specific needs around accessibility or travel arrangements, please let us know at this stage.
Unlike other providers, we do not ask for a deposit to secure your booking. We do, however, require a £99 advance rent payment which will be deducted from your first rent instalment (think of it like a present to yourself when September rolls around!).
We work on a 72 hour “cooling off” period for bookings made up to the 31st July 2023. This means that should you need to, you can cancel your booking within 72 hours of signing your tenancy agreement, as long as you have not yet moved in.
To cancel your booking, please email the Residence Team and you will then be refunded your advance rent contribution payment and your booking will be cancelled.
From the 1st August 2023 the “cooling off” period is reduced to 24 hours. Once the “cooling off” period has expired, you can cancel your booking if:
• Your UK visa has been refused
• You have not made the grades to study at your chosen university
• You have failed a year of study and are not able to continue studying at your university
In these circumstances, we will allow you to cancel your booking prior to the tenancy start date. Please send your UCAS notification/Visa refusal documentation to the General Manager within 72 hours of receiving it.
There are no other circumstances when we will accept a request for a cancellation either before or during the tenancy.
It may be possible with the Landlord’s agreement to transfer your obligations to someone else who is eligible to live at the property. There is no obligation on our part to find you a replacement tenant. If you find a replacement tenant we will need to run some basic checks to confirm their eligibility to take over the tenancy. Before we will accept a new tenant, your account and all obligations need to be up to date and any rent due up to the changeover will need to be paid. Once the new resident has signed the tenancy agreement and made the first rent payment they will take responsibility for future rent payments and all other obligations as stated in the agreement.
Simply send an email to your Residence Team to make a viewing appointment. You will receive a confirmation email if the viewing time is confirmed.
We want you to love your time living with us, but we understand we might not always get it right. We take all complaints seriously and will try our best to fix any issues as soon as we are made aware of them. For all properties managed by Fresh, please take a look at their complaints procedure and for residents of Hox Park and The Toybox, please view our complaints procedure.
