EXTENDED CANCELLATION POLICY (2021-22 ACADEMIC YEAR BOOKINGS):
We are providing our students with extra peace of mind by introducing an extended cancellation period for 21-22 academic year bookings. We will allow any person who has booked with us from January 25th, 2021 and before 23:59:59 on May 31st, 2021 to cancel for any reason without penalty, and we will refund your security deposit in full as outlined in our standard cancellation terms.
This applies to tenancies for 21-22 academic year bookings only. For the avoidance of doubt, it does not apply to any bookings for our accommodation during the 20-21 academic year or summer 2021 period.
You must notify us in writing (including email) no later than 23:59:59 on 31/05/2021. After this date, the standard cancellation terms apply.
This promotion is in addition to our standard cancellation terms which continue unaffected.
This promotion only applies to bookings made directly with us or through an agent.
Cancelling your booking using this promotion invalidates any other promotion you may have been eligible for, including but not limited to any cashbacks or referral incentives.
We reserve the right to withdraw or change this promotion at any time, and the new terms in place will then apply to bookings made after any amendment.
