FAQs

We understand that you may have a lot of questions before moving into your new room.

Below is a list of FAQ's to help answer any questions you may have.

If there is anything you still need help with please do not hesitate to get in touch!

I'm still waiting for exam results, what do I do?
If you’re still waiting for your exam results and you’re not sure whether your place at university is confirmed, don’t worry! You can still apply. You just need to ensure that if you do not get your place at university, you let the team on your chosen site know a maximum of 3 days after you receive your results, to cancel your booking. In this instance, you will receive a full refund of your deposit, proof will be required. If you don’t let us know within 3 days, your tenancy agreement will remain in place, and you will be liable for the rent on your room for the entire contract period.
Do I have contents insurance?
Yes! As standard, all Derwent's students are automatically covered by the #1 Student insurer, Endsleigh. However this cover may not be sufficient for your needs, for example if you have expensive computers and smart phones so we strongly recommend you review your policy and upgrade your cover if you feel you need it. Go to endsleigh.co.uk/reviewcover to check your policy details and enter your policy number HH1090.
