The important stuff

The following sections contain important information regarding your tenancy agreement at The Green.

You will be guaranteed a place at The Green during your first year, providing you have specified the University of Bradford as your firm choice.

Should The Green be full we will arrange for an offer to be made to you for alternative accommodation of a good standard, well managed, within a similar price range or lower, located close to the University.

We cannot guarantee accommodation in The Green for students with partners/families.

If you are bringing your partner/family, please contact Unipol Student Homes.

Unipol provides good quality information and advice on landlords and accommodation availability in the local area.

When you accept the accommodation offer made to you, you will be required to make a rent pre-payment of £250.00. You will need to pay this when you complete and accept the tenancy agreement. Please note that once you have accepted the tenancy agreement, you will be liable for the full fee after a 14-day cooling off period.

Payment details will be sent out to you when we make you an offer of accommodation.

The £250.00 is then deducted from your accommodation charge total, so you don't pay any more than the total accommodation charge quoted. There is no need for any additional deposit or security in advance or on arrival.

The remaining rent payment can be paid either in full before/on arrival, or a payment plan of three instalments can be arranged at the time of accepting your tenancy.

Students offered and accepting accommodation in The Green will be required to accept the Assured Short-hold Tenancy Agreement online.

Please note the tenancy will be between the tenant student and the landlord, Surtees Management Company Ltd, not the University of Bradford.
