Frequently asked questions

How much does it cost?

A The cost depends on the amount of rent that your university will have to guarantee. You can use our quick calculator to get an indication of cost.

Do I need to get my parents to guarantee me as well?

A No. If your application is approved, your university will act as your guarantor and your landlord won’t need anything further.

What if my landlord won’t accept my guarantee certificate?

A You should check before purchasing your guarantee that your landlord is happy with the arrangement. You can refer them to the landlord area of the website if they have any queries or directly to the accommodation office of your university.

I’m not an international student but I don’t have a suitable UK guarantor – can I apply?

A Currently we are only able to assist international students. We are hoping to extend this to cover all students at some point but it isn’t currently possible. Watch this space!

Can I apply if I am sharing a house?

A Yes, your university can act as a guarantor for your portion of the rent due.

What happens if I can’t pay my rent?

A If you are having any problems paying your rent you should contact your landlord and your university accommodation office as soon as possible.
