Other information

Every two weeks we will conduct a flat kitchen inspection where our team make sure that the property is treated respectfully and that residents are maintaining good levels of hygiene. After each inspection you will receive a score out of 50 with a focus on areas such as the condition of the ovens, hobs, worktops, the amount of waste or food waste etc. If your kitchen falls under a mark of 20, a re-inspection will be scheduled offering you and your flatmates an opportunity to keep things clean.

Locked out? No problem, head to reception where our team will ID you and allow access back into your flat or room. If you have lost your fob, you will need to purchase a new one for £20 from the reception desk.

All accommodation is non-smoking in the flats and stairwells. This includes e-cigarettes and vapes. A designated smoking area can be found outside towards the rear of the property.
