THE STAY CLUB FAQS
A warm welcome to The Stay Club. We hope that you’ll enjoy your time in our accommodation. Please take the time to read through this page as it contains information that you will find useful during your stay.
Our accommodation is approved by the National Code for Large Student Developments, which aims to ensure transparent and professional management of purpose-built student accommodation. All our residences comply with these regulations. The Code ensures that residents benefit from the adherence to clear policies and procedures relating to health and safety, maintenance, environment, contractual obligations and complaints.

Confirming your Booking

Academic year 2021/22
|Cooling off period||All bookings receive a 5-day ‘cooling off’ period starting from the booking confirmation date. If you request to cancel within this period, you will be released from the contract and receive a full refund. Please note, should your check-in date fall within these 5 days, this will classify as the end of your ‘cooling off’ period.|
|Outside cooling off period||Once the 5-day ‘cooling off’ period has expired, you will be liable to pay your accommodation fee as per your licence agreement, however, you do have the option to find a replacement occupier (at our sole discretion).|
|University refusal||Until 31st July 2021, any cancellation requests outside the ‘cooling off’ period will be considered only if you have not been accepted into your chosen London University. Each cancellation request will be taken on a case-by-case basis and must be supported by documents confirming university refusal. If cancellation is approved, you will be released from the contract and your accommodation fee will be refunded less the prepayment. After 31st July 2021, cancellations outside the ‘cooling off’ period will not be considered.|

Each cancellation request must be sent with supportive documents at least 24 hours prior to the booking start date. If the request is approved, you will be able to postpone your booking until restrictions are lifted.|
