Q. If I cancel my accommodation booking, can I get my deposit back?
Unfortunately the deposit is non-refundable. University Tenancy Agreements and agreements for partner landlord residences are for a full academic year or as contracted. Once you have accepted a University room you are required to stay in residence for the full period of your contract.
The Accommodation Office operates a Successor Service for residents wishing to leave their accommodation. Where you obtain another suitable Northumbria University student who is not already living in University accommodation (a 'successor') to take over your room you will receive permission to leave. You must pay for and will be liable for all rent until you leave the accommodation plus a £50 administration fee. Course leavers can use this service prior to their departure from residence. ord residences are for a full academic year or as contracted.
