The offer of accommodation will be subject to you entering into a tenancy agreement on the 'provider's (University/Unipol) standard terms and conditions of residence.If we make you an offer we will send you a link to these terms.
Please make sure you read the terms in full before accepting your offer of accommodation (we will remind you about this at the time), because once you have accepted our offer of accommodation you are legally bound to pay for the accommodation, and if you decide to leave the accommodation early you may not be entitled to a refund.
The main things you need to know about your tenancy agreement are:
Deposit & Advanced Rent Payment
You are required to pay £200 when placing your booking and depending on the accommodation you have chosen this is either used for a deposit or as an advanced rent payment.
At most halls your £200 payment becomes your refundable damage deposit with any damage caused deducted from this before it is refunded at the end of your tenancy. If you cancel your online application before signing your contract or you are not accepted onto your course your deposit will be refunded in full. Once you have signed your contract your deposit will not be refunded unless the room is re-let before the start of the contract.
In Broadcasting Tower and The Plaza, no deposit is required to make or secure a booking. Instead, at the point you receive your tenancy agreement to sign, you will be asked to pay an advanced rent payment of £200. This £200 will then be deducted from your first instalment of rent. Damages made to your accommodation are still subject to charges which will be payable directly to Unite students.
You will be sent a contract for up to 51 weeks dependent on the site you have chosen. Christmas and Easter vacations are included so you don't have to remove your belongings over the holiday periods.
Leeds Beckett University works closely with partners and lease rooms in order to provide accommodation to Leeds Beckett Students. We work with three partners in this way: UPP, IQ Students and CLV. UPP, IQ Students and CLV manage the properties whilst Leeds Beckett are the Landlord to occupants and provide on-site pastoral care and residential support.
Leeds Beckett University also work in partnership with Unipol, a charitable organisation who specialise in student accommodation for Leeds Beckett University and the University of Leeds students. Unipol advertises the properties of private landlords and also manages a portfolio of properties. We allocate a number of blocks of rooms within Unipol properties (Carlton Hill and Mill Street) and you can book a room in a Unipol property through our Online Application. If you choose a Unipol Property you will accept a contract with Unipol who then become your landlord.

Included in the Rent
The rent includes insurance of the property and of your personal belongings (terms apply), repairs (other than for damage caused by you), lighting and water (energy charges are not included in all rents, further details can be found at Rent information).
The accommodation is for private residential use only.
Alterations to the Property
No alterations are permitted to the accommodation and you will be required to pay for any damage you cause.
Students are required to behave with respect for other residents.
With the offer of accommodation we will send you a link to a handbook, giving detailed information about your accommodation.
Everyone is required to provide a Guarantor who will be responsible for paying your rent, if you fail to do so.
Allocation for all our accommodation is done by a self selection process online when you are booking your accommodation. As part of the process, and if in agreement. To help you and other applicants in selecting a suitable room and flatmates, your gender, age and a screen name can be shared and viewed by other applicants as part of the room self-selection process.
The tenancy agreement will be for 41-51 weeks (depending on which accommodation you choose). If you wish to leave before the tenancy expires, you will still have to pay the rent. The tenancy is not transferable, but the University and Unipol will normally release you early from your tenancy agreement if a suitable replacement student tenant can be found to take your place. Full details of cancellation conditions and charges are given in the standard terms and conditions of residence that will be sent out to you when we make you an offer.
