Hollis Croft FAQs

Some Studio room types allow double occupancy, can my friend stay with me?

Yes, you need to reconfirm with the apartment whether the room type you choose allows double occupancy, and the co-resident needs to be a student.

What is the general difference between Bronze/Silver/Gold/Platinum room types?

The main difference is the size of the building area, but each room has the same furniture, decoration style, etc. Note: There may also be other minor differences between apartment buildings in different cities.

Can I switch if I don't like my room?

If other students cancel the room, or agree to exchange with you, you can contact the property management team of the apartment, and the staff will try their best to meet your needs. However, except for the different room types and different building areas, the configuration and facilities of each room are the same.
