Safety and cancellation policies during Covid-19
In the light of the global coronavirus pandemic, many universities and student accommodation providers are planning safety measures to make sure that students will be as safe as possible while doing their courses and staying in their new homes. These measures can include accommodation providers limiting social interactions in student properties and universities arranging larger lectures online, with face-to-face teaching only happening in small groups.
Many accommodation providers have updated their cancellation policies and are offering students the option to cancel their bookings or amend their move-in dates for free if their university has to remain closed because of a possible second wave of the pandemic.
Different accommodation providers have different cancellation policies though, so make sure to sign up for the webinar to find out more.
Different types of student accommodation in London
In the webinar you’ll also learn about the different types of student accommodation that are available in London. In general, there are three different types of accommodation available.
In a Shared Room, you’ll share your bedroom and bathroom with at least one other student. Other facilities like a kitchen are also shared.
In a Private Room, you’ll get your own bedroom and in some cases your own bathroom as well. Other facilities are shared.
If you go for the Entire Place, you’ll get a self-contained studio apartment all for yourself. This will include a bedroom, bathroom and typically a kitchenette for cooking your meals.
The different types of accommodation can be slightly different with different accommodation providers and not all providers will offer all three options. Our booking experts will be able to give more information about specific properties at the webinar.
Take a virtual tour of Canto Court
At the webinar you’ll also be able to take a virtual tour of Canto Court. A stylish property with an excellent location in the heart of London in Shoreditch, Canto Court is a great place to call home during your university years. Located just a 3-minute walk away from Old Street tube station in London’s zone 1, all of London is easily reachable from Canto Court, whether you’re going to class at your uni, or doing some sightseeing with friends. Canto Court boasts 164 studio apartments across eight floors, some of which offer great views across the London skyline.
