Unite 50% discount for 4 weeks from Mon 18th January

This discount will apply to any of your students staying with us on a direct let basis, but not to those under our nominations third party agreement as we fully recognise this is not our decision to make. You are no doubt considering your own approach and we would welcome any further information about your own decisions that may affect these students.

  • Eligible students will receive a 50% discount on rent for a total of 4 weeks, beginning on Monday 18th January.
  • Applications for the rebate must be received by 14 February, and the discount will be credited to student accounts in March.
  • This offer is open to students who are not in residence in their Unite Students property between 18 January and 14 February, and they must have paid their account in full (to January 31); students who cancel their contract during the 4-week period will not be eligible.
  • Any student who is currently struggling to keep up with rent payments is being urged to contact Unite Students, as well as their university’s student services team, for support. Additionally, eligible students whose tenancy ends before 1st August will be offered a free complimentary 4-week extension to the end of their tenancy. We recognise that the national situation has rapidly changed, and that you may still be deciding how to best proceed with teaching and extra-curricular opportunities for the rest of the academic year. We hope that by supporting students to live in their university city for an extra month over the summer period, it offers you additional flexibility in planning for this. I would be happy to discuss how we could work together so that you and your students can benefit from our properties and services during this 4-week period.
