Avon Way House FAQs

What is a margin?

Security deposits are part of our booking process. After paying this fee, no one else will be able to book the room as long as you sign and return the documents within the stipulated time frame. Failure to do so may result in your selected room being released for re-letting.

I'm a part-time student, can I live here?

Unfortunately, the apartment can only accept full-time students.

What will happen to my deposit?

Students can secure your deposit through the Deposit Protection Service (DPS) or the Lease Protection Service (LPS), who will hold your payment until the end of your stay with us. You will receive an email from the DPS/LPS confirming that their money has been secured. You will also get a deposit ID and a repayment ID. Here's the information you'll need to get your deposit back when you check out.

How do students look for accommodation in Essex?

University Accommodation Services: Many universities, including the University of Essex, offer accommodation services to assist students in finding suitable housing. 

 

Online Platforms: Students frequently use online platforms and websites dedicated to studio apartment Essex. That's why I recommend using uhomes, an online platform dedicated to helping students find their perfect home away from home!

 

Social Media Groups: Many universities have official social media groups or pages where students can connect and share information, including accommodation listings. Students often create Facebook groups or join existing ones specifically to find accommodation in Essex.
