Licence Periods

Rental periods for on-campus contracts are:

  • 38 weeks for undergraduate students
  • 44 weeks for PGCE students
  • 51 weeks for Postgraduate students

All contract lengths include the Christmas and Easter vacations. We are unable to offer short term lets. For students on courses which start later in the academic year, it is not possible to guarantee accommodation as accommodation licences begin in September.

If we weren’t able to help you with campus accommodation, we will advise and help you in finding accommodation off campus.

Legally binding contract - on-campus

All documents below form the accommodation contract. You must read the Terms and Conditions of the Licence before you apply for accommodation in University residences. In particular you should know in advance that you are committed to paying the whole licence fee, even if you want to move out early (for example moving somewhere off campus, or you have no more academic committments left), except under certain circumstances such as withdrawing from the University. It is your responsibility to be familiar with the Terms and Conditions of your contract, as you must confirm that you have read and understsood them when you accept your accommodation offer.

The University of Roehampton are working in partnership with Endsleigh to provide you with Contents insurance, already included within your booking. It is important for you to check this cover, so please review your cover by entering your policy number HH1170.

Fire Safety - Evacuation plans

Fire safety legislation requires the University to ensure that all occupants of our buildings can escape to a safe place in the event of a fire or other emergency. Many people with disabilities are able to evacuate a building without assistance or with minimal help from others. Some individuals may require further assistance and in such cases a Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP) is created. If you feel that you may need further assistance evacuating a building, please read the guidance and then complete the Fire Evacuation questionnaire.
